Designer of the Year
I am an Ojibway/Cree designer from Ochapowace First Nation, Sask., I co-own Julie Paul Designs Inc. With the invention of imitation beadwork in 2015, I have designed hundreds of pow wow regalia for customers all over the world. I crossed over to fashion in 2018, when discovering the many fashion & apparel opportunities that were possible with my innovative beadwork. Goals
To open a beautiful store front that will include pow wow regalia, bridal & formal wear, youth apparel & Indigenous art.
When I envision my goals, I see the brand "Julie Paul" similar to Calvin Klein but with its own unique strength & identity. My clothing line...
My 2019 clothing line included a lot of blue color shades, as well as red to honor MMIW. As always, every item includes rhinestone or silver bling!
