NAFW12 | Tracey George Heese

Cree fashion designer Tracey George Heese showed her clothing line, Timeless Shadows, during the recent National Aboriginal Fashion Week events held in Regina on June 21, 2012. Her collection included dresses, tops, and menswear.

Heese has over 30 years of sewing experience under her belt, and over the years she has created garments for professionals, dignitaries, powwow dancers, cowboys, First Nations Royalty, and even Her Royal Highness Princess Ann.

In a recent interview, Heese remarked, “A lot of the clothing that I sell is based in Aboriginal appreciation; but you don’t have to be Aboriginal to buy it. It’s contemporary, but it draws on the history and culture of our First Nations people."
