Designer's Notes:  Limited Edition blouse constructed with shawl collar to create a dramatic neckline. An extremely eye-catching piece that won't go unnoticed.

The Métis were famous for their floral beadwork and embroidery, and were often called the ‘Flower Beadwork People’. The symmetric floral beadwork, often set against a black or dark blue background, was inspired by European floral designs. Their floral silk embroidery, which was introduced to them by the Ursuline Nuns (from Europe) taught the Métis girls the art of embroidery at Mission Schools.

    Story of The Red River Floral

    Representing harmony and pride, The Red River Floral was derived from traditional floral beadwork which is distinctively ‘Métis’. The Métis were known as the ‘Flower Beadwork People’. This print was created by Candace Lipischak, a Métis artist from Winnipeg who merged European floral designs with The Red River traditional flower (center one) which creates a connection between culture and earth.
