Here is a few excerpts from articles I have written - a lazy writing day for me. But I find looking through old articles takes me back to the moment. I can still hear the story being related and usually remember where I was sitting and what the weather was like if we were outside. As these are taken from published articles, I am going to include names.
|Denise Brillon being recognized at the |
BC Aboriginal Business Awards
Denise Brillon - Debrillon and Artifaax (Producer/Designer)...Early signs of her talent were evident when she began to use the materials around her to recreate things she had seen in the Sears catalog. Bobby pins were twisted into earrings and tin cans were stomped onto shoes to make high heels.
Amy Lu (Stylist)...A passion for fashion has been there from the beginning... She even refused to join Brownies because of the uniform.
|Melanie Neufeld working behind the scenes|
Melanie Neufeld (Make-up artist at Lizbell Agency)..."I was always big on make-up. When I was a kid we had a red Doberman with 3 legs named Sheba and I put purple eye shadow on him".
Dan Nguyen (Hair, Make-up, Creative Director at They Representation - Co-owner Lure Hair Salon)...has always been drawn to the arts – painting, sculpture and drawing. Hair and make-up intrigued him as well. As a child, every trip to the bathroom was an opportunity to change the look of the doll who resided there.
Katherine Soucie - Sans Soucie (Textile Artist/Educator)...At 8 she decided to create a wardrobe that was different and unique, clothing that would define who she was. Her closet full of hand-me downs provided the raw material and a stack of fashion magazines helped with the inspiration.
