CHRISTIAN ELIZABETH is an American actress, model and singer, best known for her roles in movies such as “A Simple Favor” and “Cherry Bomb.”
In 2016, she won a Tony Award for Best Actress for “A Beautiful Mind,” and her acting career has been praised for its depth and sincerity.
Elizabeth’s clothing line, christian clothes, is one of her biggest sellers, and she has been featured in numerous commercials.
The company’s clothing is handmade by hand in the United States, and the brand has won awards at the International Costume Design Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards, and even the International Emmy Awards.
But Elizabeth isn’t just any American, according to her co-founder, Christian Boudreau.
“She is the daughter of immigrants from India and Nigeria and raised by immigrants, her father was an Indian immigrant who came to the U.S. in the early 1930s,” Boudrier told CBC News.
“And she has also seen a lot of other cultures and people and she understands and she’s able to relate to the cultures around her,” he said.
“You have to be able to really understand people’s cultures and understand the people in your own family.
That’s really what we’re trying to do here.”
Boudreau’s daughter has a different perspective on the American fashion industry.
“When I started in the business in the late 1980s and early 90s, I always felt that it was a very white-collar, middle-class job and I felt like I could do better, but as I became a bigger executive, and as I began to make the brands bigger and bigger, and then as my company grew and grew, I realized that this is an industry that is really not a white-front business, it’s a business that is a global business,” she said.’
The way I see it is, you can’t be a great fashion designer and a good brand owner if you’re white, and that’s what’s really been going on for a long time.’
In 2015, Boudrien’s company, B&O Shoe, created the American-made footwear brand “Boudier” to celebrate its founder’s immigrant heritage.
“There’s no better way to show respect to our heritage than to create a shoe that is made in America,” B&S CEO Bill Womack said in a statement.
“It’s just really a reflection of how much we have in common and how much more we all have in this country than most of our counterparts, and how we have such a love of making shoes that are just as beautiful as the next guy.”
B&S’s first release, a high-end shoe, won a Grammy Award.
Boudrie’s daughter, along with several other B&Os employees, will be in attendance at the 2017 BET Awards in February.
