After Paul Frank Industries’ mistake of throwing a neon-Native American powwow-themed Fashion’s Night Out party last year, the company issued an apology and offered to collaborate with Native American designers Louie Gong, Dustin Martin, Candace Halcro and Autumn Dawn Gomez. This collaboration was named “Paul Frank Presents” and the fashion collection includes a printed tote, pillow and throw blanket by Louie Gong, five collections of Hama bead jewelry by Autumn Dawn Gomez, authentic Paul Frank hand-beaded sunglasses by Candace Halcro and a variety of tees, tanks and bandanas by Dustin Martin, according to Beyond Buckskin. The collection debuted at Santa Fe Indian Market 2013 and fashion pieces are on sale now at shop.beyondbuckskin.com.

Chelsa Reil and her team successfully hosted the National Aboriginal Fashion Week in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada for a second time. With eleven designers from all over Canada and Arizona who were chosen to showcase their collections at First Nations University of Canada, NAFW is surely reinforcing their presence of providing a forum to nurture and celebrate First Nations designers.
