A gown by an Indigenous designer turned heads among the celebrities and correspondents on the red carpet at Sunday’s Golden Globes awards in Los Angeles.
The dress worn by CTV’s etalk anchor Lainey Lui has brought global exposure to Anishinaabe Mohawk designer Lesley Hampton.
“It’s been an absolutely incredible experience and the feedback has really been great,” said Hampton.
Hampton is based in Toronto and has shown collections at Indigenous Fashion Week Toronto, Vancouver, London Fashion week and the Santa Fe Indian Market.
“It was incredible to be able to represent the Indigenous fashion community and hopefully pave the way for other celebrities to shop Indigenous and see what Indigenous artists can do, whether it’s more traditional or more modern contemporary work,” said Hampton.
