Evolution: Stephanie Chehade – Behind The Label
When it comes to South Australia and fashion, Stephanie Chehade is no stranger to the game. Having grown up alongside her family’s trusted dry cleaning business, it can be said that the Chehade name has long helped keep the fabric of our state’s vibrant fashion industry. It was no surprise then, when the rising young designer showcased her debut collection at New York Fashion Week with a bang. True to the Chehade name, her quality ready-to-wear label highlighted a refined and polished approach to design, one that comes with years of experience and practice.–
Since then, Stephanie’s luxury, ready to wear label has given a whole new meaning to the work to cocktail philosophy. No ordinary pantsuit combinations in sight but instead contemporary pieces which offer women the flexibility to dress up their work ensembles without compromising on personality and style. Her jumpsuit picked to be the Brownlow attire of choice for Australian fashion darling, Jacinta Franklin (nee Campbell). Not a small feat for a label that has been around for less than a few years. Stephanie designs for the modern day, busy woman – because she is just that herself. Her label embodies the very essence of young entrepreneurship and hard work and all those fun vibes that come with living and designing in Adelaide.
