Evan Ducharme's ORIGIN

For his fifth season Evan Ducharme’s ORIGIN is a bold exploration of the colours, textures and experiences associated with his Métis heritage. Set to be unveiled on Friday, April 29th, 2016 at Space (552 Clark Drive) in East Vancouver, the concept emerged from memories Ducharme had of his father and grandfather’s hunting and trapping attire, balanced by flashbacks of his grandmother picking saskatoon berries in the woods. Traditional garments such as the jacket of the Coureur de Bois and the Métis sash (Ceinture fléchée) also make an appearance in the way of a cocktail dress and woven belts. !
