“On matters of style, swim with the current. On matters of principle, stand like a rock.”
– Thomas Jefferson
Artist Stephanie Blackford of http://www.blackforddesign.ca/ was at the same craft fair I met Lincoln Heller at for those of you who liked the fiveleft Style-Diet post. Everything I saw that day was Style-Diet worthy. I was agitated because I wanted to post about everything I saw. But I was time-constrained. Initially I was going to take the skytrain to my meeting. Instead I rushed through the market on my way to the taxi stand and ended up only a couple minutes late. Meeting Stephanie was worth it! She is a bubbly, enthusiastic, vibrant personality who makes wearable art.
Here she is with her hand-made creations.
Here is Stephanie sewing signature button-holes
For the piece de resistance: The Spirit Coat with its $ 9,000 price tag:
The Style-Diet Shot celebrates individuals with unique style, wearing at least one article of clothing acquired via the Stephens’ Sisters Shopping Diet. It must be local, sustainable, second-hand/re-purposed, inherited or ethically produced. If you can’t find clothing fitting that criteria then it must be from a country with stellar human rights records.
