The eponymous Stella Jean brand represents an intersecting point between the two seemingly opposite cultures of Haiti and Italy. It is a cultural distillate, and a cross-border fertilization project, that is narrated through fashion. The founder uses fashion as a powerful international megaphone that allows beauty to make a pathway in the viewer, a pathway that transforms into a channel of integrationist contamination. The collection is more than the sum of its garments; clothes can speak louder and in a more incisive manner than many words, somehow managing to ignite cultural fabric.
The meeting of cultures, and the relative inclusiveness, is an irreversible choice to this very day. The point at which we could decide whether or not to deal with others different from us has already passed; the others are already part of us.
