African inspired design continues to make its mark in the fashion industry.  Stella Jean is an Italian based designer that uses African printed fabrics in most of the collections.  She fuses culture from her Haitian roots with West African wax prints and Italian craftsmanship.  I first spotted Stella Jean clothing at Holt Renfrew in Toronto this past summer.  I was amazed at some of the pieces and also thought about how I’ve seen so much of this type of styling in Ghana and from other African countries for a long time.  Take a look at how singer Rihanna rocked this dress on her trip to the White House recently getting her #Scandal inspiration poses on.  She posted pics on instagram which put the designer in the spotlight.

I actually wrote about the designer on my old blog Style & Culture back in October 2013. Click HERE to read: Ethical Fashion Milan
