Any Calgarian can vouch for our bi-polar weather. We cried out for a functional and versatile accessory to keep us both warm and fashionable minus the bulk to lug around, and Stellar Hoods answered our call. By combining two of our favourite keep-me-cozy accessories - the hood and the scarf, owner and designer, Megan, opened a world of possibilities.
Megan graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelors of Commerce (concentrating on Marketing) but has immersed herself in the fashion industry early on, gaining an understanding of how the industry operates. It was a combination of her business savvy and love for fashion that led her to pursue Stellar Hoods. Aren't we glad she did.
These hood-scarf hybrids can be worn tied, untied, belted, buttoned, casual, dressy, inside out, right side in, and nearly everything in between. The original design was initially inspired by a scarf piece that Megan's mom used to wear but added a modern twist to it by experimenting with different designs and exploring new materials, colours, and textures.
When designing, Megan turns to the runways and fashion magazines to gauge the upcoming colour schemes and trends. The different colour and fabric combinations she pairs together, along with the numerous ways you can wear it allows Stellar Hoods to match and complete any outfit, no matter what look you are going for. She even offers customized hoods to suit your style to a T!
"Style is a very individual perspective. There is no right or wrong. That's why I try to create hoods that are very versatile and can be worn with many different outfits no matter what kind of style you have."
With the colder months nearly upon us (cries), now is the perfect time to add a Stellar Hood to your closet! You can tie one up to go at this seasons FABRICATED Trunk Show. Stellar hoods are also available at www.stelarhoods.com, both Purr locations, The Gallery, and Chapel Hats in Chinook Mall
