StyleWeek Northeast Videos: Kent Stetson, Kara Wickman and Stephanie Kolanko
StyleWeek Northeast had lots of surprises this session, including a visit by Providence's Big Nazo performance group, who presented Kent Stetson's handbags as a performance, pinup-worthy fashion by Kara Wickman and wearable velvet, feathers and fur by Stephanie Kolanko. Check out the videos below.
The catwalk became a stage for Kent Stetson’s tenth-year anniversary celebration. He’s been creating his incredible handbags—works of art, really—for a decade, and he wanted to go big for this show. The audience was in for quite a delight when his unconventional models strutted their stuff—Providence's own Big Nazo lab creatures! There were at least a dozen wild and ridiculous alien-like creatures stalking down the runway presenting his purses like gifts from the gods. Handbag designs included a photographic print of a Martian’s face made into an oversized clutch, a fuchsia space suit-like tote, a leather carry-all with an alien eye printed lining, a black tote sporting a bony x-ray print and an amazing orange purse with dangling gold chains. Which begs to ask the question--which came first, the aliens or the bags? kentstetson.com
