Michelle Thrush Rocks A Danita Strawberry Dress

Hello everybody! I am on my way home from a great trip to British Columbia for the Beat Nation exhibition opening at the Vancouver Art Gallery. It was a busy, event-packed couple of days, and at one of the parties, I spotted a kickin Danita Strawberry dress. Being a Native fashion geek, I recognized the dress before I recognized the star wearing it.

Cree actress Michelle Thrush was in Van for the Aboriginal Achievement Awards. We last saw her on this blog wearing a Disa Tootoosis dress for the Geminis. I love the fact that she supports (and wears) dresses by First Nations fashion designers, and that they in turn support her as well. It's like the 'Michele Obama model' of making subtle political statements with fashion.
