Ontario designer Angela DeMontigny's contemporary ready-to-wear collection with one-of-a-kind wearable art draws from Chippewa, Cree and Métis elements. Her trademark is hand-painted symbols and beaded accents, executed with an artistic skill handed down by her ancestors.

“As a Métis/Cree woman, I feel honoured to represent Canadian Aboriginal fashion in such a unified way with my brothers and sisters from many Aboriginal nations across Canada to a world audience during this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said fashion designer Angela DeMontigny. “Louie Riel once said: ‘My people will sleep for one hundred years. When they awake, it will be the artists that give them their spirit back.’ I believe that we are carrying out his prophecy. I feel humble to know that my ancestors are proud as I carry the torch forward, leading the way so that future generations may create and live their dreams as I am.”
