Over the years Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has earned the reputation of being a major player in the fashion scene and today she cemented that by revealing that she's going out on her own. This morning WWD confirmed that Winston Wolkoff is launching a new creative agency, SWW Creative, which 'seeks to forge new partnerships in fashion, beauty and entertainment.'
The new move works for several reasons. In the past she served as Vogue's special events director so was the mastermind behind the success of most of the Met Gala's up until 2010, along with all of the other events that come hand-in-hand with US Vogue. After leaving Vogue she headed over to the Lincoln Center to serve as their very first fashion director where she worked on New York Fashion Week's big move from Byrant Park and was responsible for big events like the recent 'Lincoln Center Presents Ralph Lauren in Conversation with Oprah Winfrey'. Naturally, then, if there was anyone who could bring production, collaborations and sponsorship together, it's her.
'After almost two decades in the fashion and arts world, I am ready to bridge the gap into the entertainment world as well,' she in a statement to WWD. 'The support from my mentors has been overwhelmingly positive and I am so fortunate to have had the ability to work with some of the most incredible people in all industries. Now I can create so many initiatives and productions and advise on so many levels.'
