Stevie Crowne Limited

Today the Stevie Crowne Limited brand was incorporated on British soil; specifically in London, UK. I’ve worked so hard for the last ten years day in and day out to make this move and to make this once local and sustainable brand into an internationally legitimate label and enterprise. My company promise and mission statement will be posted this week. I thank all of my customers, clients, and supporters globally who have supported me and I can’t wait to show you what I have planned next!

Custom Commissioned Crowns

I recently was commissioned to do matching crowns for a client and his niece. I decided upon receiving the order to recycle the last fabrics I had prior to leaving my former studio in Canada. Below is the behind the scenes process. These scraps were leftovers from FW18, SS19, and SS2020 collections which was a total blast from the past.

Below are some time lapse + behind the scenes videos of the crown production!

While I was in a creative and inspired mood on the spot, I also made a matching mask to go with the crown! See the video and photos below

CHROMATICA ECO-WARRIOR Inspired Jacket

If you stay in touch with my social channels and my brand and are reading this, chances are you are informed that I recently decided to work towards a move to London, England to expand my fashion brand I created in Canada and brought all over the country the last 10 years. All the way from Saskatchewan to Vancouver to Toronto and then Montreal and being everywhere in between has been a pleasure. Touring and creating for individuals across the country has truly inspired me in ways that they do not know. As you would imagine, there is a lot of deadstock supplies and materials I’ve accumulated over my journey and a large part of being a sustainable designer is using these excess materials before I leave to reduce my carbon footprint and waste as a designer. Over the weekend my intuition and heart lead me to reimagine, reinvent, and repurpose a neon jacket that I have had on my hands for about a month now. Below is the step-by-step process and thoughts behind how I channeled each material into this limited edition piece unconsciously inspired by Lady Gaga‘s Chromatica eco-warrior archetype.

This is the garment in question in its most simplest and thrifted form. I have always been a fan of bold color and as soon as I saw this at a thrift shop in my hometown during my travels, I knew I had to buy it.

STEP ONE: FABRIC DYE & SPLATTER

Here is the jacket after the fabric dying and splatter stage. Check below to see the process up close!
                    STEP 2:  INSTALLING PYRAMID STUDS

Here is the jacket after the stud embellishment phase. This is the trademark that truly launched my brand in 2011 when I did my very first fashion show in Saskatoon at the age of 16 years old
 

STEP 3: CHAIN, FINE CRYSTAL, EMBLEM INCORPORATION, AND PERSONALLY SIGNED LABEL

Considered to be my favourite transformation of this jacket, this is the final product after placing the chain detail, fine crystal work, sewing in the car emblems, and then crystallizing the car emblems to give it that extra detail work. To make it official, I recycled the blue dead stock leather that I had carried in my possession for years and cut it into a cute label and signed it myself. Check below to see the final behind-the-scenes process!

SS2020 ZENITH EUNOIA PREVIEW

For our Spring-Summer 2020 collection, I aspire to bring forward an elegant, sophisticated, and classic approach to edgy high streetwear. Over the years, I’ve seen the importance of creating a sustainable fashion brand that transcends into different categories and genres of style. The goal with the Zenith Eunoia collection is to reimagine, reinvent, and repurpose a mix between modern-vintage streetwear with luxurious finishings; inspired by haute couture techniques. You can expect this collection to have strong features like rhinestone embellishing, swarovski crystals, beaded fabrics, embroidery, and pearls. Mixing opposite ends of the spectrum undoubtedly has a mature and glamorous appeal while remaining true to my youthful design aesthetic. My goal as an artist is to grow. I hope my clients, audience, and spectators can grow and learn with me too as time goes on.
