Bead for This
WHO: Artist Charlene Holy Bear
WHY: Charlene Holy Bear’s beaded Vans are designed to be show stoppers. Literally, four years ago, the Native American artist made a last-minute decision to spruce up her son’s new pair for the annual Gathering of Nations. Her intricate beading of the wardrobe staples caused a huge distribution in the fashion force, and now hopefuls from all over are now on a wait list for a pricey pair. But don’t worry: Charlene’s website has tons of pictures of her completed kicks for other clients. Which means you dream of the day until they're yours. And never, ever stop.
