my new favorite designer of the moment is
haitian/italian designer, stella jean.
after winning vogue italia's 2011 who's on next,
she was invited by giorgio armani himself
to show her first collection at his personal show
space, the armani theater.
sourcing ethically-made fabric from africa, and mixing it
with modern and vintage silhouettes, gorgeous headpieces,
knockout jewelry and layers galore- stella jean's
work is a force to be reckoned with.
i cannot wait to see more!
if you agree-- here is an up-close look with suzy menkes:
