Meet Our Team


 

Stella, Co-Founder & Creative Director

Stella is the creative force behind the brand.

Launching the Stella Carakasi direct-to-consumer brand in late 2018 has allowed us to remain on the leading edge of fashion by bringing her voice closer to our customers.

After connecting with thousands of women over the span of her career, Stella's personal mission has evolved into empowering women through sustainable, high-quality designs that fit their bodies and lifestyle.

Paying attention to what women want and need is at the core of what she does and her clothing transforms the way women feel about themselves and that is powerful.

She is not ruled by anything of the moment or by trends, instead she is focusing on quality and longevity and she designs within a tight system of styles that work together and that makes getting dressed easy.

Not only is this a much more sustainable approach to design but is exemplifies that you do not need many clothes to create a wide variety of looks as shown in our Looks We Love page.
