Mvskoke fashion designer makes a statement with contemporary take on tradition

SHAWNEE – By day, she works at the Citizen Potawatomi Nation’s Cultural Heritage Center as production assistant, but by night, she makes a name for herself in the fashion world.

Native American apparel designer Leslie Deer, Muscogee (Creek), has been building her fashion line for 20 years, applying traditional Mvskoke designs in her contemporary womenswear collections.

“My mother was really interested in fashion and she was a very stylish lady when I was young,” Deer said. “I’m partially inspired by her and partially just because I like to play with colors, sketch things, and create. I’m also inspired by my tribal background and I like to apply that – I just use apparel as an outlet.”
