Curtis Oland - Canada

Curtis Oland is part of a movement of indigenous designers from Canada. Raised in western Canada, his memories of its mountainous landscape are a continual source of inspiration. Curtis trained at Ryerson University and won the Emerging Menswear Designer Award at Toronto Men’s Fashion Week in 2017. His work often focuses on the use of raw and organic materials and his installation offers visitors a spiritual and meditative experience, drawing on the communal and ancestral knowledge that informs his practice.
