Designer Stella Jean wants to bring jobs to workers in Haiti and Mali | South China Morning Post


StellaJStellaJ1 Among the luxe denim and 1970s boho hippie looks on the catwalks of Milan last month was the designer who has been catching everyone’s eye for the past three seasons.With a knack for vivacious prints mixed with crisp picnic-check shirts and a nostalgic 1950s-style silhouette, Stella Jean has the fashion crowd flocking to her shows, and snapping up her designs.Jean’s balloon skirts, with their idiosyncratic wax prints developed by artisans in Burkina Faso and Mali – countries barely mentioned in fashion circles – were spotted at London and Milan, worn with mannish shirts and chic heels.They have been snapped up by Lane Crawford, the Shine boutique in Hong Kong and Matchesfashion.com via | South China Morning PostStellaJ2 StellaJ3 StellaJ4.
