Meet the Native American Fashion Designers we are supporting.
During New York Fashion Week
CYNTHIA TRUJILLO, NAVAJO DESIGNER
Cynthia Trujillo. A Navajo fashion designer from Fruitland, New Mexico. At age 7, her mother taught her how to cut and sew Barbie doll clothes. And since she didn’t have a sewing machine, She learned how to sew by hand. She believes this skill has carried her a long way in the fashion world, working in alterations in a high-end clothing store and in bridal wear. Today she gives credit to her mother and to her native heritage as a Navajo designer. She loves how strong, resilient & beautiful our native women are. They are are a matriarchical people. Life revolves around our women. She likes to think that the clothes She makes reflect the beauty that’s before us, the beauty above us, the beauty below us, and beauty all around us. We walk in beauty. Just like her mother. She is beautiful.
