Dorothy Grant’s Vintage Scarves Collection

Dorothy’s garments have been described as a site of intersection. They are a creative space
where fashion meets Haida art, myth and history. Like art, fashion should not be stagnant, but
be constantly moving to convey a contemporary culture.

DG Foam Woman Scarf”

Description

This silkscreened image comes from a legend which originates from Haida Gwaii. The Haida have long believed that all life came from the ocean. “Foam Woman” is the unforeseen power of that ocean, tossing in the waves and creating her foam to let her presence be known. Traditional Haida colors of red/black were chosen for one scarf, and blue/green symbolizing the ocean was chosen for the other scarf.

This design was originally made in 1989 in collaboration with Robert Davidson to create two button robes in wool fabric with a hand-stitched appliqué of the design. Dorothy later printed this design on silk which debuted in a 1989 fashion show. Design copyright was transferred to Dorothy in 1996.
