Thinking of Creole | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to my Friday Fashion.
Blending cultures, flavors, colors, continents, new and old in a feminine way is the kind of fashion style most suitable for me. I feel comfortable in tight pencil skirts with large prints and oversize ethnic jacket. I also feel to carry well extravagant pieces such as this beaded collier I just made for my Etsy store – Vibrant colors and mixing patterns is something I do very well in both my fashion and home interior design work.



Why am I attracted to ethnic fabrics? I come from an ancient rustic, rustic land, rugged nature and homemade food. The people of my land weave palm leaves and baskets by hands, carry food wrapped in large hand weaved napkins, recycle fabric of outdated clothes into a new piece of clothing, or reuse it as a dust rag and hang colorful clothes on the balcony. I am attracted to folk music and to everything that vibrates history.

I find so much inspiration in the Stella Jean’s fashion collection. Originally from Haiti, the first independent black republic in the world with its history embedded in West Africa, Stella Jean now lives in Milan. She mixes the fabrics of villages in Ethiopia, Ghana, Haiti, Kenya and Mali with Italian tailored style and creates unique, sensual elegance without being ostentatious nor ridiculous.

Stella Jean participates since 2013 in the Ethical Fashion Initiative that allows artisans living in urban districts and rural poor to take control over their lives and change them for the better. She works with artisans from all over the world, encouraging a fashion without borders and against colonization. With her work she re-establish equilibrium between stories of different worlds through the use of symbols of the various cultures.

Admire Stella Jean’s 2014 collection in the video below. It was so striking and even though it is last season collection, I find it very new and interesting.

Fabrics, decorations or finished products made by some of the most talented artisans in the world compose Stella Jean’s fashion collection: hand-woven textiles from Burkina Faso, hand-dyed fabrics from Mali, leather bags from Ethiopia and custom jewelry from Haiti. This is a great mix of colors and arts from various cultures that hardly will go out of style in six months.
This ethnic fashion remains fresh through the years and I believe we need at least one piece in our wardrobe to make a statement. Ciao,
