A closer look at the latest JBT Women's Collection, in Artistic Designer & Director
Joanne Brings Thunder's own words.
What is the inspiration behind this collection?
It reflects the busy and active lifestyle of many indigenous women. Reflective of the time's we live in and with a glance moving forward with excitement, empowerment and tremendous change. It’s about revisiting all our histories while moving forward as an indigenous woman in today’s society. I wanted to explore notions about what’s considered outdated and old-fashioned, and keep the nostalgia for a time we can only dream about now, and somehow to make it all relevant for today’s contemporary indigenous woman. In particular, it was about looking at our past and these very particular designs that later would become what the world now knows as Northern Plains Indigenous Elegance.
