Whether it is her beautifully-beaded bags or sumptuous coastal lamps, Stephanie Gazenard’s line of accessories, Stephanie’s Collection, are works of art in their own right and glimpse into the hidden talent Haiti has to offer the world.
Born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Gazenard studied computer program and enrolled in modeling school. However, she was drawn to and embraced the arts. An encounter with local shoemaker, who was less than enthusiastic about footwear, sparked her interest to create rich, exotic and colorful sandals that women will want to wear. Realizing her true talent with the help of family and friends, Stephanie’s Collection was born in 2006.
