The Evolution of Mabel

The Evolution of Mabel

MANNEQUINsmall-[Converted].jpg

The original drawing of Mabel, the designer's faithful dress form since her days at Parsons School of Design. The mannequin drawing became the brand icon for Stacia New York, representing the origins of a true dressmaker and her NYC atelier. She appeared on the boutique's front door, on shopping bags, and on the signature turquoise flag labels sewn on every garment. The logo was retired in 2015 after Stacia rebranded, but the hand-drawn trademark lives on in the designer's first children's book on fashion, Mabel the Fashion Muse.

One of the first drawings of Mabel and her trusty side-kick the yorkie, Kona Kai. The shop dog has since been renamed Brooklyn after the designer's current yorkie. The original shop dog, Kona Kai, was a fixture in the Brooklyn boutique and loved fabric!
