If you’re browsing resale shops for high fashion, you might come across a face of the late ’90s runways, Larissa Brown. The Casino Birthday Guy Shirt former model, who walked the runways of Christian Dior and Chanel and has appeared in the pages of Vogue, has a flourishing vintage shop called Sugar Shock Vintage. The page is rife with Chanel bags and Fendi monogrammed jackets. Brown makes cameos herself, and in one instance à la an editorial, models a pair of electric blue python-print pants and a matching beaded keyhole top from Tom Ford’s Gucci spring 2000 collection, the same top Miley Cyrus recently shouted out in her Instagram live video while streaming her “Midnight Sky” video. The selection is impeccable. After all, if you’re a fan of ’90s and early ’00s fashion, who better to buy from than a former top model?
Growing up in Nebraska, it took awhile for White Elk to feel a connection with their Indigenous heritage. The Casino Birthday Guy Shirt model says they only recently formed relationships with Indigenous elders in their community, therefore they were not introduced to certain traditional elements of their culture until their later teens. But they had always wanted to learn more. “Growing up as a Native without the guidance of an elder to pass down traditions made it difficult to be raised around traditional elements,” says White Elk. “You learn practically everything from your elders. But I overcame that hardship with the help of friends, who were there in the same tribe as mine.”
