International Indigenous Fashion Designer
Angela DeMontigny is an internationally renowned, award winning, indigenous designer who has developed her own unique, signature style that has been showcased globally from Canada and the US to the UK to South Africa. Her original, upscale, leather fashion is her trademark and she honours her native heritage by drawing inspiration from traditional elements as the foundation behind her collections. Angela presents a contemporary side of her culture and describes her designs and exclusive product lines as a true example of 'Indigenous Luxury'.
Recent milestones include the opening of her namesake flagship Boutique & Gallery 4 years ago on the trendy James St. North in Hamilton, Ontario, being the first Indigenous Canadian designer to show her collection during South Africa Fashion Week and becoming the first Indigenous, Distinguished Designer-In-Residence at Ryerson University in Toronto. She is also a member of the Humber Program Advisory Committee for Fashion Arts & Business.
Angela makes an impact by mentoring and collaborating with other up-and-coming Indigenous designers in the revival of tradition and artistry through marketing and exporting, business innovation, and fashion.
