TOP NATIVE DESIGNER AND STYLIST ANGELA DEMONTIGNY LAUNCHES YOUNG NATIVE FASHION LINE WITH CHINESE STAR AYI JIHU
‘Young Native’ (@YoungNativStyle) a new fashion line from Designer Angela DeMontigny.
Maverick Native Designer and stylist Angela DeMontigny today launched her new Fashion line ‘Young Native‘ to the world in some style. We have been expecting a new young and fresh line from Angela (@womanofdesign) for some time now, but what we did not expect was the collaboration with Chinese Star Ayi Jihu.
“Live Free, Love Free” That is the motto of the ‘Young Native‘ brand designed by top Native Designer, Angela DeMontigny. This new line which has a refined ‘street’ vibe to it, is for the young, free spirited and confident 18 – 35 year old woman who wants to be sexy, classy and real but also connected with the natural and cultural elements of life. Working with Ayi Jihu to create that vibe was a shrewd move by Angela DeMontigny. Ayi Jihu is an artist, philanthropist and celebrity known for being independent and real. She is also a Native born Chinese girl, from the Yi Minority in Sichuan Province of China. She is about as native as you are gonna get coming from China and she represents a new breed of international women hungry for their place in the new world.
Angela DeMontigny worked closely with Chinese Star Ayi Jihu when creating the collection. After developing the costume for Ayi Jihu’s Fear Chaser character that is being crafted into a movie, comic book and animation, Angela and Ayi became not only close friends but colleagues. Ayi Jihu is now hard at work on her new Album set for release in 2013 as well as getting ready for her first proper Film Role in British Romantic Drama As Blue As The Sky which is set to start filming in October with a strong British cast. Angela DeMontigny is styling Ayi for her part in the film and the two have been working very hard to get everything finalized.
Working on the Young Native Fashion Line with Angela was the most fun. She really does it all and I just kinda give my opinion on what I like and what I think will go down. The whole style of the range and what it stands for suits me perfectly. I love the Tee Shirts they are so cool and each one of them stands for something. They are cultural, natural, colourful and well made, but they are also cool, street and fashionable, not as easy as you would think to achieve. When I am wearing Young Native clothes I just get so many compliments from women, which is different from just getting men looking. Just walking down the street you get people coming up to you asking, where did you get that, It’s great! Most of all it’s about how things make you feel and I feel real, sexy and even more confident when I wear the right things and Young Native gives me those feelings.
I’m really proud of what we have come up with here and I know it will go down with women all over the world. I am overjoyed to be the Ambassador for the product and feel I played a little part in how this new line is being presented. Angela is a fantastic, original designer, she is the first of her kind to really break out into high fashion. She and I are both going where no one has quite gone before and we have a kind of sister relationship. She has designed the new Fear Chaser costume (which is fantastic) and she is also designing and styling me for my live shows, videos as well as the film I am going to be working in this year. So we are just having a good time, working hard and doing good business too. I know she works closely with My management, Record and Production company Shlepp Entertainment and they had a lot to do with helping her develop the marketing and images and direction for Young Native. They are also helping her establish the brand in China so it’s very much a team effort all of this. I know everyone will love it as much as I do.
It was a natural progression for Angela, after becoming Ayi Jihu’s personal stylist and designer to craft a collection she has been planning for several years and use Ayi Jihu as a muse for her designs.
The result is the beautifull and vibrant Young Native Collection. The Young Native Collection is set to grow over the next several months with more styles and accessories being added. Ayi Jihu is proud and happy to represent this new vibrant fashion brand and hopes that it will catch on around the world and especially in China.
Head of Shlepp Entertainment Stevie Eagle E
We are constantly on the look out for strategic business alliances for our business. We are always looking for ways to expand Ayi Jihu’s presence around the world. She is not just about singing there is much more to her than that. Young Native is a fantastic brand with great growth potential and it works perfectly with Ayi Jihu. We see nothing but good things here. Angela DeMontigny is the first of her kind really, a native designer about to breakthrough into mainstream fashion. Together they form a Dream Team with us firmly behind them, making sure that the brand and the individuals get out to the world.
Ayi Jihu continues to work hard independently with Shlepp Entertainment building her brand around the world. Despite the odds she continues to grow. Her new single and album are scheduled for release in 2013 and we shall be bringing you any news first here on Global News.

Looking at Chinese star Ayi Jihu and A Celebration of Women Founder Catherine Anne Clarke together does not automatically throw up ‘Kindred spirit’ However in truth both these women have very much in common.
Ayi Jihu has fought against her fears, tradition, culture and even her own people to establish herself independently as China’s first true crossover musical and popular icon. She has done what many have tried before and failed to achieve and she has done it mostly on her own. Catherine Anne Clarke in establishing her foundation A Celebration of Women Foundation Inc has had to go it alone also. Swimming against the tide to create what many are now seeing as a potential world leading organization in the next several years.
These two women have more in common than is first apparent when you see them together. They both have a self sacrificing attitude to their work. preferring to give to others rather than take for themselves. They both work hours that would kill most of us 14 to 16 hour days non stop. They both believe in something bigger than themselves and the circle they move in, and they both are building an international business.
As big as this world may seem, we realize just how small it is when like minded souls find each other amidst Billions of people. In truth it is not that hard because people like Catherine Anne Clarke and Ayi Jihu are far and few between, rare, and so finding each other is easier than one may think. 2012 promises to be the year both these ‘Women of Worth’ truly push themselves firmly above the Radar. Let us hope they both continue to inspire others to rise above their circumstances and be much more than this world says they should and can be.

On New Years Eve 2011 in Toronto Canada at a beautiful auditorium called the Lebovic Centre Three great artists got together for what could well prove to be the beginning of something historic. Thrown together part by planning, chance or divine guidance were Chinese International Star Ayi Jihu, Canadian (Rat pack) star and singer Brian Roman and Singing prodigy Christopher Dallo.
On the face of it should not even work, much less have happened. Ayi Jihu is still recovering from a viral Flu and a punishing program in Canada supporting A Celebration of Women Foundation inc. Brian Roman put this show together to Raise money for Charity preferring to ignore the Big money gigs he usually does. Christopher Dallo rushed in from working with Grammy Award winning producer and writer David Foster to make the show. It is fair to say that these three wonderful artists could ply their trade almost anywhere in the world and turn over a nice buck without too much problem.
However such is the power of giving, the beauty of chance and the chemistry of people, because all of those things came into play to make a very special group of people get together on a very special night. Also we should mention that like the 3 musketeers their were really 4. On this special night musician and singer Dave Lawlor was also in effect and he added to what was a very special night indeed.
The show itself was wonderful, and we hope to be able to bring you that soon. What is even more engaging though is the fact that it worked and that the chemistry between these three diverse talents on and off the stage was cemented by common foundations they all share: Talent, humility, realness, and love. We are on to something here. Watch this space.

Chinese Star Ayi Jihu’s Journey of Love to Toronto Canada is drawing to a close. During her stay Ayi Jihu seems not only to have won over the Canadians but their weather also. Where usually one would find 6ft of snow there have been mild days and a sprinkle of the white stuff here or there. That said, the weather has still plummeted to minus 16 degrees below. Ayi Jihu has spent the last several days battling a cold and although she has well and truly fallen in love with Canada, she is ready to head to Palm Springs at least until the snow melts here.
Ayi Jihu will be swapping the grey and cold of Toronto Canada for the warm dulcet tones of Los Arboles hotel in Palm Springs California. If you have been keeping up with Ayi’s journey in Canada so far you will be aware that she hit the ground running, and barely had she landed than she was in the mix. Whether it be performing on stage or speaking in schools, Radio or TV interviews Ayi has not had too much time to rest since landing in Toronto
We spoke to Ayi Jihu via skype on how she felt about her last days in Toronto and asked her if she was looking forward to hitting California: “I am truly going to be sad to leave Canada. Even though I have a cold and it is cold here I absolutely love Canada and I love the people. I had the best time here. I only wish I had more time to look around and do more normal stuff. I can’t thank A Celebration of Women Foundation Inc and especially Catherine Anne Clark for inviting me here. I met some fantastic women and men and I have made some great friends like Randi Goodman and Leena Patel and so many more. That said I am ready for some sun and to get a bit of a rest before things go crazy again. I have so much to do in LA and Palm Springs, another full schedule, but I am hoping and praying to get a moment just to rest and relax in Palm Springs, I really love it there and Los Arboles Hotel is like a little paradise in the desert.
Ayi Jihu will hit LA on the 3rd of January 2012 and another journey for this international Chinese star begins.
