2017 Spring Designer Focus: Antoinette Stone

2017 Spring Designer Focus: Antoinette Stone

My biggest fashion inspirations growing up…

Valentino and Oscar de la Renta are my biggest inspirations. Although, these designers had different styles, they shared and accomplished the same level of beauty and elegance in every collection. I was always drawn to Oscar de la Renta’s use of classic pieces in bold colors and Valentino’s use of and lace. Growing up, I would often try to infuse their design aesthetic with my style to create cohesive collection.

 

The moment that my brand evolved…

I believe my brand is still evolving. I am constantly adding and tweaking ideas to improve my brand.

 

Describe your signature trait…

I am all about detail, so I love to use curved lines and beading in my collection. I use curve lines to outline the curves on the female form to create movement and I use beading to add texture to the garment.
What I am currently working on…
I am working on developing my website to launch my online boutique mid-spring early summer 2017.

 

My best advice to an aspiring Midwest fashion designer/photographer/blogger/model…

Pray and keep it moving! Don’t let your disappointments and set backs stop you from achieving your dream.
