Stella Jean – Fashion’s Rising Star

Stella Jean Fall 2015
Stella Jean, (Jean pronounced like the French word for"John") is the daughter of a Haitian Mother and an Italian father. Residing in Rome, she is one of the winners of Vogue Italia's talent competition "Who is On Next". She debuted her Spring-Summer 2013 collection at Milan Fashion Week.

Givency Fall Winter 2015

Givency Fall Winter 2015
"Victorian Cholas" was the source of Riccardo Tisci's collection or was it "Death Becomes Her" morning attire from the Costume Institute's exhibition? Either way, Givenchy gave us kiss curls, braids, septum and face jewelry. The collection was a dark brooding one complete with the silhouette that he loves. The catholic cross was stitched into the bodice of a dress that was corseted and worn with peplum jackets, and one of the top trends for fall, the dress over the cropped pants that has been seen on the runways from New York to Milan and now Paris. GIVENCHY IS AVAILABLE IN CHICAGO AT: BLAKE 212 West Chicago Avenue, 312-202-0047 IKRAM 53 West Huron, 312-587-1000 SAKS FIFTH AVENUE 700 N. Michigan Avenue, 312-944-6500 NEIMAN MARCUS 737 N.
