For those not familiar with her work, Stella Jean is an emerging Haitian-Italian designer known for often merging Italian tailoring with African and Caribbean fabric and designs. Considered to be Giorgio Armani’s protégé, Jean has been described as a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry. In addition to her creativity, we are also impressed by Jean’s support of trade workers in developing communities. She incorporates Haitian and African artisans’ work into her designs, by sourcing material from native craftspeople to help generate commercial enterprise and self-sustaining local communities.
