Reppin Africa: Stella Jean's Spring 2012 Collection Is African Inspired
Stella Jean is a young designer of Haitian origins born in Rome. As a model she lived fashion in a fast and furious way taking the best, forgetting the rest. Debuting ”as the bride” in an Egon Von Furstemberg’s show brought her, her good fate and a happy career. Some years ago she decided to move into a more creative territory. Check her African inspired look book for spring 2012.
Inspired by her Creole heritage and her upbringing in Rome, Italian-Haitian designer Stella Jean merges both cultures with traditional wax prints and modern shapes. Her spring/summer 2012 collection is a delight to watch. Reading her concept was also incredibly inspiring, nothing is better than a mash up of different cultures!
