The Artist

Stella was born to be an artist. From early childhood she was surrounded by fashion, theater, and abundant creativity. Her father was a prolific architect and fine artist, her mother was a renowned fashion beauty, and her entire family, from her grandparents to her siblings, was involved in all aspects of local theater. Even as a small girl Stella was encouraged to play in a world of whimsy, luxury, and ‘dress up’. The inspiration for Stella Page Design collections stem from this fertile creative ground.

Throughout her youth Stella created pen and ink drawings, paintings, and collages almost daily. As a young adult Stella pursued her love of fashion by attending the renowned FIDM, where she excelled in couture, fashion illustration, and draping. In 1999, Stella decided it was time to take her creativity to the next level, and it was then that she began to hone her design skills and master the craftsmanship of fine leather accessories for women. With a pinch of borrowed money, a heaping spoonful of talent, and a whole lot of tenacious hard work Stella Page Design was born. Her first collection was an instant and uproarious success.

Today, nearly 12 years later, Stella’s bags are still the coveted, praised works of art that they were at their conception, only better.  “I’m definitely hitting my stride”, Stella says, “but the best is yet to come."
