Stylish and savvy are two words that capture Stella & Dot accessories. Designed to capture and inspire chic womenacross the globe, Stella & Dot did just that at on July 29, 2010 in Washington, D.C. Stella & Dot joined efforts with leading eco-fashion non-profit Fashion Fights Poverty (FFP) in Georgetown at Puro Café. In an effort to support the FFP global platform, 20% of the proceeds went to fund-raising initiatives for this year’s event. “We are so excited to partner with Stella and Dot,” said Sylvie Luanghy, Vice President of Corporate Relations, Events & Co-founder of FFP.
Stella & Dot offered a preview and fashion show of their Fall 2010 collection with key pieces from their Metro Chic, Day to Night and Vintage Luxe collections. For fashion and jewelry lovers in the area that are not familiar with Stella & Dot, they offer a unique appeal to jewelry for the modern/ on-the-go woman. Stella & Dot has been featured in The New York Times, on The View, The Today Show and in countless fashion magazines such as InStyle and Lucky magazine.
I had the opportunity to speak with Stella & Dot Director, Julie Canellos and new D.C. jewelry stylist Kristine Thomas about the feature fall collections and trends within the D.C. metropolitan area. “There are so many great pieces with Stella & Dot. Each piece is so versatile. The Deco Drop earrings are prices at $39 and are a must have for the fall season,” said Julie Cannellos. “The Deco earrings offer a classic vintage look and have been extremely popular.”
Other fall must haves for the D.C. fashionista are the Bardot Spiral Bangle which is priced at $49. My personal favorites for bracelets are the Maltese Cuffs in ivory and black as well as the Coloburst Enamel Cuff- GreenTurq. For a beautifully bold neck statement, according to stylist Kristine Thomas, “Women should go for the Charlotte Statement Necklace or Natasha Embroidered Bib Necklace.
Throughout the fashion event, models demonstrated the various looks of each Stella & Dot piece. From adding broaches to necklaces to using necklaces as bracelets, Stella & Dot understand that women want functional, classic, and stylish pieces.
As the night came to an end women rushed to place orders and book trunk shows. Michael Dumlao, FFP Chief Creative Officer & Co-founder thanked Stella & Dot as well and Puro Café for hosting the event. “We would like to thank everyone for their help and contributions that made this night possible.”
