Summary

Celebrating Native American design as an important force in the world of contemporary fashion, this book features beautiful, innovative, and surprising looks from Native American artists. Mainstream American fashion has always been influenced by Native American design, and that’s because Native artists have always created exquisite clothing, jewelry, and accessories of
their own. But it’s only recently that Native designers themselves have started to break into the fashion industry in a big way. Current Native fashion is both wearable and beautiful and,
as this volume reveals, increasingly fashion-forward. Divided into sections according to the designers’ personal styles, the book showcases the work of dozens of fashion designers, from
Virgil Ortiz to Patricia Michaels to Jamie Okuma. The book
even includes a few Native-influenced pieces by non-Native
designers like Isaac Mizrahi and Ralph Lauren. Native Fashion
Now designers have dressed presidents’ wives and been
finalists on Project Runway, sold their work around the world,
and seen it acquired by museums and private collectors. With
examples that range from haute couture to casual streetwear,
from evening gowns to beaded boots, and from skateboards to
umbrellas, Native Fashion Now demonstrates the extraordinary
range and talent of designers who honor important cultural
traditions while creating breathtaking of-the-moment fashion.
