2015 ARTIST IN BUSINESS LEADERSHIP FELLOW

 

Bethany graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Los Angeles. After a successful career with Americas Top Designers she launched her own brand, B. Yellowtail. B.Yellowtail aims to develop a luxury lifestyle clothing line that helps bring tribal identity and imagery into the global fashion industry.

“Through my use of authentic prints and textiles, I am on a mission to restore tribal identity to global fashion, as well as showcase the diversity of contemporary Native America. My online platforms allow me to be easily accessible to my community as well as other native designers in Indian Country," stated Bethany Yellowtail.

Her goal is to replace stereotypes and misappropriation of Native American imagery in the fashion world.
