About the Daphne Odjig Collection
Award winning designer Sheila Keighron created a collection of women's clothing inspired by the artwork of one of Canada's most distinctive and celebrated Aboriginal painters, Daphne Odjig. Born in 1919 on Manitoulin Island in Ontario, Odjig received numerous accolades for her art including an appointment to the Order of Canada in 1986, an election to the Royal Canadian Academy of Art, and in 1998, a National Aboriginal Achievement Award.
Keighron has brought together an exciting collection of classic designs that subtley incorporate and pay homage to the art of Daphne Odjig. Her long and close friendship with Daphne Odjig inspired her to bring Odjig's art to life in a line of high end women's fashion.
