Denise Brillon-Hill, Artifaax

Artifaax, a clothing and jewelry design company, based in the Lower Mainland, was founded 10 years ago. Designer, Denise Brillon-Hill, who is of Cree and French heritage, believes that when you purchase an Artifaax piece "you are investing in culture, in Canada, and in North American peoples". Denise infuses everything she touches with a sense of history carefully uniting her First Nation and French backgrounds into each thread of her designs. Artifaax clothing is an exceptional business known for its mentorship and commitment to the Aboriginal community and its cultural integration into the fashion world.
