Four Native designers took a major stride when their work was included in the Louis Vuitton Men’s Fall-Winter Fashion Show in Paris in January. They contributed designs to Pharrell Williams’ new collection for the fashion powerhouse that displayed a strong western feel. Dee Jay Two Bears (Standing Rock Sioux Tribe/Lakota) has worked with Williams for years and coordinated the show. We’ll visit with some of the Native designers who brought Native artistry to a new level of fashion representation.
