The Darker Side of Fashion: Celebrity Eyewear Designer Stevie Boi Comes to St. Louis
Humble, flashy and fierce, eye wear designer to the stars Stevie Boi is a force with whom to be reckoned. The 24-year-old Baltimore native is packing up his newest collection and heading to the Midwest for a one-night event that is sure to heat up the STL. “Stevie Boi Leather,” a collection of men’s, women’s and unisex apparel, outerwear and signature accessories will be presented on Saturday, August 3 at The Grove hotspot Just John.
Stevie’s sexy, dark and edgy line of eyewear has graced two international Vogue covers, been featured in countless fashion spreads, and has been seen on celebrities including Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Kanye West, Fergie, Rihanna, Anna Dello Russo and more. Citing his influences as music, culture, fashion and lifestyle, Stevie plans to push boundaries with the “Leather” collection, constructing top-notch pieces to set its wearer apart from the average fashionista (or fashionisto).
The event kicks off with a meet and greet cocktail hour at 8pm, followed by an outdoor fashion show featuring his one-of-a-kind accessories and apparel starting at 10pm. “At the St. Louis show I will be showing pieces I designed for Macy’s, Lady Gaga and other pieces I designed for my collection,” says Stevie. “The eyewear will be very unique featuring Swarvoski crystals, metal wings and even lights.” He continues, adding “Sharing this collection with St. Louis means a lot to me. The designs come from years of inspiration pulled from personalities and themes I’ve encountered in my travels. It’s the darker side of fashion, and I know St. Louis is going to love it.”
The free event is expected to draw a crowd of fashion lovers and influencers from throughout the area; dark and chic party gear is encouraged. For more information, view the official event page, or strut on over to Stevie Boi’s official website.
