Islandista on the rise: Haitian-Italian designer Stella Jean

Have you heard about Stella Jean? She’s the super cool Haitian-Italian designer who has been taking the fashion industry by storm in recent seasons.

Just last month at Milan Fashion Week, Giorgio Armani himself gave her his very public vote of confidence in her talent by allowing her to show her Spring/Summer 2014 collection at his famed showspace, the Armani Teatro. Aside from Armani himself, she is the first womenswear designer who has been allowed to show there – it’s kind of a huge deal!

Armani said of the decision:

“The new generation of Italian designers needs our support. It is for this reason that I continue to make my theatre on Via Bergognone available to them. Stella Jean will be the next designer to organise a fashion show at the Armani Teatro, and I hope this experience brings her luck.”
