Floor length dress custom designed and handmade by Debra Sparrow. One shoulder off, side split made for those special occasions.
Debra Sparrow was born and raised on the Musqueam Indian Reserve and is self-taught in Salish design and jewellery making. In 1983, she joined a class of women in Musqueam which focused on the revival of Salish textiles and has since been combining textile and Salish designs in a contemporary way through geometric, hand spun blankets and hangings.
It is Debra’s hope to educate others about the beauty and integrity of her people’s history through her art.
