Leather Tulip Dress by Bethany Yellowtail

Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: From Native designer and FIDM grad Bethany Yellowtail (who's a member of the Crow and Northern Cheyenne tribes), this sculptural, structured black leather mini dress with an exposed front zipper and lacy neckline shouts high fashion -- echoing shapes used by Tom Ford with a Gaultier-style goth edge.

Where: Yellowtail's dress is available at Dr. Jessica R. Metcalfe's new, all-Native online fashion shop Beyond Buckskin Boutique, an extension of her fashion blog Beyond Buckskin. For more on the shop, see our interview with Metcalfe.

Cost: $400

Style It: This dress walks a fine line between Gaga and glamorous (the two rarely intersect), but since it's not your everyday party dress it doesn't deserve blah accessories. We picked out greens and blues to play off the dress' futuristic shape. Below Yellowtail's dress is styled with color-block cutout sandals from Burak Uyan in mint and arctic blue, Miu Miu plexiglass and crystal bolt earrings, and a Christian Louboutin silk frame clutch.
