Stella Jean is The Next Big Thing in fashion, according to Giorgio Armani.

The Italian fashion powerhouse has named the young Italian designer the next up-and-comer to benefit from his scheme to support young talent by allowing them to show at Armani/Teatro, his Via Bergognone show space, during the Milan collections.

Jean, who was born to a Haitian family in Rome, stands out ‘for her unique and very personal style, in which métissage and bon ton make for a new idea of contemporary elegance,’ we’re told.

‘Giorgio Armani is offering concrete support and a strong signal of confidence in emerging creativity. I can guarantee that the energy and enthusiasm that results, in emotional and creative terms, is really extraordinary.’

Says Armani, ‘I hope this experience brings her luck.’
