Stela 9 Pop Up Press Launch

Thursday, 25 June 2015


This week we were invited to the press launch for Stela 9's pop up store in Soho. 

'Stela 9 is a lifestyle brand with production based in Antigua, Guatemala. The brand works with local artisans to develop handmade clothing and accessories that preserve and showcase Guatemalan weaving and handicraft traditions. Steal 9 is carried at over 400 boutiques worldwide, including retailers such as Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie.'


When we walked in we were welcomed to a colourful room with a glass of champagne. I was taken aback by how amazingly beautiful all the fabrics were, they showed us around and gave us a little back story to each collection. Everything is hand made and because most of the products are made from repurposed native clothing, nearly everything in the room was one of a kind. There are some pieces of clothing that are made in bulk and therefore identical but lots of it was unique, which I loved!


I loved the bags, they are perfect for festivals and the summer in general. The quality and detail in each piece is phenomenal and well worth every penny. Of course we couldn't leave empty handed, if I had the money I would have bought one of everything! We purchased a belt each that came in these beautiful little bags. Each one was a different size as again, they are all unique, so we took a while trying each one on for the best fit. 



As we were about to leave we were then given a goody bag each, with one of their beautiful woven bags in, that I can't wait to use! Everyone was so helpful and lovely and really took the time to answer all of our questions and help us choose what items to get. 



I am now a massive fan of this brand! Their mission statement and everything they do is so great, I will definitely be purchasing more.


 What are you loving from Stela 9?
