Andee Jasper is a mixed Indigenous artist from the Stó:lō Nation (Leq’á:mel). She started Dark Laydee Designs in the Spring of 2019 when she combined her background in fashion with her heritage of crafting, as a way to connect with her culture & community.

The name Dark Laydee Designs comes from a Cher album, “Dark Lady” combined with the unique spelling of Andee’s name, with two “e’s”. She admires Cher for her extreme fashion sense and for always being a a strong feminist figure in the entertainment industry. She's unapologetically herself and lives life fiercely, not giving into the pressures of society.

Andee hopes for customers to embrace these attributes when they wear Dark Laydee pieces, to never be afraid to stand out and make a statement!
