As a young designer, Stanzee developed an interest in traditional leather carving practices whilst studying Fashion Design in Sydney and Central St Martins, London. Extending from her passion, Stanzee developed a belief that leather as a bi-product can be given a second life and each piece has its own story to tell, making them unique in their own way. Stanzee envisioned herself producing distinctive but comfortable designs that were trend savvy, easy to layer and had the ability to be stand-alone statement pieces. Refining her interest in leather products the Stanzee label came to life.
By incorporating classic designs with today’s modern edge, Stanzee produced one off hand carved pieces that would be worn by Australian and International music celebrities. From these pieces, Stanzee began to explore the multi-functionality of her designs so that they could be worn several ways. By 2013, the Stanzee dream was now a ready to wear leather label that was unique and displayed her undeniable passion for the story behind leather craftsman ship.
As a young label, Stanzee is constantly inspired by her travels across the world, different eras and the power of the combination of masculinity and femininity. Stanzee designs are now sold in Australia, USA and New Zealand. The Stanzee designs have also been featured in Russh and Harpers Bazaar, and worn by celebrities such as Eve, Jennifer Hawkins, Elle Ferguson, Jessica Mauboy, Ruby Rose and Paula Abdul.
