"Fashion is a reflection of social culture" - Dorothy Grant
Check out this fantastic video from The New Canoe (2008) featuring Haida fashion designer Dorothy Grant. It offers a behind-the-scenes look at her studio and boutique space in Vancouver. The video also offers a one-on-one informal interview that provides insight as to how she got started in fashion, the inspiration behind her Feastwear and Dorothy Grant lines (as well as her menswear and accessories options), and her hopes for the future of her fashion design business.
Unfortunately, I do not know how to embed this particular video, so I'm just sending the link, so click here for the Dorothy Grant on The New Canoe video.
Definitely check it out to see what all goes in to being a successful fashion designer!
Dorothy Grant will also be showing her latest garments at the Santa Fe Indian Market, Aug 19-22, 2010!
