Below is a review posted by Dream Sequins about the UNRESERVED Alliance trunk show at Bryant Park during NY Fashion Week on purse-maker Maya Stewart (Chickasaw/Creek):

Tamara and I made our way to Bryant Park Hotel for a showcase of American Indian fashion and accessories sponsored by the Unreserved American Indian Fashion and Art Alliance. The Loft at the hotel was a beautiful, sunny backdrop for six talented emerging designers. Being an accessories lover, I immediately fell for the inky clutch creations of Maya Stewart, who is currently enrolled in London College for accessory design. Crazy Snake Rebellion is the name of her socially-conscious collection and despite the urban-friendly colors of her pieces, the collection pays tribute to American Indian cultures and themes.
