Fashion takes center stage as Rebekah Jarvey, an Indigenous designer from Montana, shares her inspiring journey and her powerful expression of culture through her new fashion line. Rebekah's presence at the Cannes Indigenous Arts and Fashion Festival in France marks a significant milestone in her career.
Rebekah's line is a stunning representation of her Indigenous heritage, infused with contemporary aesthetics and vibrant neons. As a lover of fashion from a young age, Rebekah's creative journey began with designing clothes for her Barbie dolls. However, it was in 2020 that she made the transition into the industry as a designer, driven by her innate passion for fashion and her desire to make a meaningful impact.
Born and raised on the Chippewa Cree tribe reservation in Rocky Boy, Montana, Rebekah draws strength and inspiration from her Indigenous roots. Her line serves as a vehicle for sharing her culture with the world, challenging stereotypes, and breaking away from traditional cultural colors. By embracing bold and unconventional color palettes such as pink and neon green, she pushes the boundaries of Indigenous fashion, redefining the notion of contemporary Indigenous artistry.
Rebekah's line not only showcases her unique design aesthetic but also serves as a platform for educating others about the history and struggles of Indigenous peoples. She acknowledges the painful legacy of residential schools, where her great-grandparents and grandparents were subjected to severe abuse. The trauma inherited through generations has motivated Rebekah to use her fashion as a form of storytelling, shedding light on the injustices faced by Indigenous communities.
Through her line, Rebekah communicates resilience, empowerment, and the beauty of her heritage. She acknowledges that not all Indigenous artists adhere to traditional designs and colors, embracing her identity as a contemporary artist who is unafraid to explore new territories and express her creativity authentically.
As Rebekah and Ashley discuss the significance of Indigenous identity and the importance of understanding and appreciating diverse cultures, they highlight the transformative power of fashion as a means of cultural expression and storytelling. Rebekah's line serves as a testament to the resilience and strength of Indigenous communities, reclaiming narratives and challenging preconceived notions in the fashion industry.
