StyleWeek is all about supporting local emerging designers,
so why not give a shout out to those who also support local?
Introducing: Kelly Dutra-Leal
Question 1: What is your occupation?
A. Stylist and photographer.
B. Seller of Vintage & Fashion Collectables as”Kelly & Joe’s Gems” at Nostalgia On Wickenden St in Prov.
Question 2: How would you describe your style? My style is anything that’s different.I love loud, unusual, edgy pieces. Mixing different colors and textures … Leather, furs and lace. Vintage with modern is a favorite if mine as well. My pride and Joy of my walk-in closet is not so much my Christian Louboutin or my Louis Vuitton but my One Of A Kind pieces I bought from local designers Ive met through Styleweek , Boston Fashion Week etc.
Question 3: How important is it for you to support local?For myself and my family it is extremely important, being that we are small business owners. I believe it’s imperative to our future that we support local or we will all have things that are “Made in China”….and that’s not what I want! I buy everything from my business cards to Christmas shopping from local businesses. My husbands local business helped renovate The beautiful Providence arcade mall and we as a family are proud of that. We as a family or individually are at the arcade on a weekly basis every since it opened its doors. We love it !
We put together a photoshoot to showcase some of
Kelly’s favorite pieces from different StyleWeek designers.
Thank you to the team who helped make this happen!
