Vancouver, BC Canada 2016.
Vancouver-based fashion designer Chloë Angus was honoured to create five gifts for The Royals and their children. It was during their visit to British Columbia and the Yukon.
The gifts are from the Chloë Angus Design Spirit Collection. That is a long-running collaboration between the designer and First Nations artists.
Prince William and Prince George gifts are a matching set of blue silk bow ties.
Princess Kate and Princess Charlotte gifts are Spirit Wraps with Akoya shell buttons. With artwork by Haida artist Clarence Mills.
Kate’s wrap gift is most of all, a piece of wearable West Coast art. The art is emblazoned with a Mother Bear motif in a deep shade of sapphire blue. As a result, the design and colour were chosen in honour of Prince William’s mother, the late Princess Diana.
Princess Charlotte’s gift is a child-sized Mother Bear Spirit Wrap in baby pink. And a perfect gift for your Flower Girl.
Designer Chloë Angus was born in BC, and raised behind a sewing machine instead of a television. As a result, she has been designing clothes since a young girl. Her design aesthetic influence is by the wild and iconic landscape of Canada’s West Coast. And the First Nation’s people that are her neighbors.
Working with Clarence Mills before completing her fashion design education, Chloë learned hands-on about the timeless art of the Haida people. After finishing school, she embarked on a project with Clarence to unite fashion with this unique West-Coast art. And the Spirit Collection was born. And therefore, it continues to develop with new designs, artists and inspirations.
The Royal Collection 2016 is available online.
