Fashion Trend: Globally Inspired Dressing
Wow. What a fashion show recently presented by Haitian-Italian fashion designer Stella Jean. ‘My style reflect and evokes my Creole heritage in which two opposing cultures intertwine and blend, resulting in a precious femininity,’ says Stella Jean.
Milan’s Fashion Week press, international celebs, fashion icons, and other attendees are still talking about the youth and chic spin Stella Jean promoted on the catwalk.
‘Global’ is a word often used to describe the creative inspiration displayed on international runways by fashion designers; however, this show stands head and shoulders above the rest. The fact that she mixed African prints with Japanese tailoring was pure genius.
Accenting her stylish color palette with textual prints and patterns such as Dutch wax prints, geometrics, and animal graphics, Stella Jean left the audience gasping for more. Her textile materials included such luxe fabrics as mohair, cashmere, wool, silk, and alpaca.
Fashion accessories, such as tied belts, fabric bags, and printed booties, were standout accents.
Key apparel pieces were maxi kimono cardigans, cropped jackets, graphic sweaters, and volume dresses.
Stella Jean. Fashion maverick of the arts. Fashion designer extraordinaire. Signature style—her mastery of bold prints and fashion silhouettes that reflect her multi-cultural exposure to art, fashion, and beauty.
