Ojibwe Future-Punk


For a fashion design class assignment, we were to create designs inspired by superheros. I decided to create designs for Ojibwe butch punks in a post-apocalyptic future, with a color scheme inspired by water and metal. The jackets are in black, blue, and silver. The backs of several jackets are studded with thunderbird designs. The boots draw from moccasins and leggings. The heros wear extra long breech cloths/dance panels. One wears a medicine bag that is closely strapped to the body to keep the wearer safe. The sleeved garment is inspired by the sleeves worn with an Ojibwe woman’s strap dress.
