Stella Jean’s partnership with the Ethical Fashion Initiative continues to grow as she returns to her roots in Haiti to work with Haitian artisans. Stella Jean’s Spring Summer 2015 collection, was inspired by her recent trip to Haiti with the Ethical Fashion Initiative Team. Stella Jean met and worked with metalsmiths, papier-mâché and horn artisans in Haiti to produce jewelry for the Stella Jean Spring Summer 2015 collection.

Stella Jean collaborates with the Ethical Fashion Initiative to produce luxury handicrafts, under ethical and fair conditions, with artisans in Africa and Haiti. Stella Jean has visited Burkina Faso and Haiti to develop her collections. The Ethical Fashion Initiative and Stella Jean share ethical principles and values of women empowerment and poverty reduction.

Next summer’s accessories will be all about hand-painted fer forgé cuffs; smooth horn bracelets, colorful raffia beaded necklaces and papier-maché fruit.
