Shannon Kilroy was named New Designer of the Year by the Interior Indian Friendship Society in 1993 and was chosen by the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade to tour Germany. She draws her inspiration from the traditional clothing and images of the Nlha7kápmx Nation. The colours of the silks and linens she uses reflect the landscape of the Plateau, and the beads, feathers and buckskin decorations recall traditional ornaments. Her newest themes are drawn from the legends of her people.
