Professional stylists demonstrate ways to use show-stopping, one-of-a-kind pieces to make a fashion statement.
Handcrafted fashion is as relevant today as it was when the American Craft Council began its shows in the 1970s. To highlight the American Craft Council’s network of talented artists, the council will partner with regional stylists for Style Slam.
Style Slam encourages stylists to work with the American Craft Council’s network of artists to demonstrate how handcrafted statement pieces are the perfect fit for any fashion-conscious wardrobe. Four regional stylists will participate in Style Slam at the American Craft Show in Baltimore, held at the Baltimore Convention Center on February 23-25, 2018. Sloane Brown, founder of Baltimore S.N.A.P and society and style reporter for The Baltimore Sun, will host the program.
On Saturday, February 24, the stylists will scout the show floor looking for fashion finds to visually articulate their signature style to use on mannequins and models at the show. The stylists will offer attendees fashion tips and collaborate with participating interior designers from the “Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft” exhibition to provide commentary on the intersection of fashion and design. Stylists will be at the Style Slam booth to discuss how attendees can incorporate craft pieces into their wardrobes to complement and accentuate their style.
Stylists participating in Style Slam are:
- Taylor Evans, Stylishly Taylored
- Shae Li, Beautifully Together
- Sydney Paige Pauline, Coffee-Stained Lace
- Jason Tompkins, Jason Tompkins Styling
