Since 2004, fashion designer Stephanie Doucette has let her environment-friendly and socially-responsible beliefs inspire her craft. Dress-maker, shop-owner, professional stylist and mom, she’s building beautiful wardrobes and fighting ‘fast-fashion’ one flattering dress at a time.
She rescues forgotten, magical fabrics from the archives of storied fashion houses. She designs utterly fashionable and timeless clothing. Then, she sews them in New York and sells them locally.
Limited quantities of vintage fabrics and findings mean she’ll make only as many pieces as the materials allow. Her fashion joy lies not in mass-producing look-a-like dresses, but in handcrafting multi-purpose, wearable works of art.
Beyond fashion, this is about supporting local economy and community. Mother to three, she left NYC to open Swing, a ‘Main Street’ store in every sense that’s creating a new community of inspired and confident women.
