I live with the BA artist that hand-crafted some of the beaded jewelry featured in this month’s issue of Numero Homme Magazine in Germany, and I’m pretty excited about it.
The October 2015 issue of Numero Homme magazine based out of Germany features model, Nyima Ward wearing (my badass roommate’s hand-made, artisanal, Native American, beaded goods) STORMIE ART (represented by Roseark). Photos are by renowned fashion photographer Alexei Hay, and styling is done by non-other than Bill Mullen ( This group of people…I’M TELLIN’ YA!)
You get a sense of not only the kind of work Stormie does, but also the kind of person she is. Old School style meets psychedelic funk as it manifests itself through her tribal inspired, intricate bead-work.
Stormie is a feminist’s feminist. A strong, independent woman who etched her way into the fashion scene long before digital and social media was ever thought of. She has worked with some of the most renowned stylists around the world, while her work has been worn by artists like Madonna, and Mick Jagger (just to name a couple).
Stormie has her finger on the pulse of trending styles, as she has a most unique and creativity-inspiring living situation nestled in the burgeoning neighborhood of Highland Park in Los Angeles (where she’s been kicking ass for the last 20 years with her myriad of animals….including a pet pig, on a big piece of land in a SWEET 100-year-old house). But she never loses her sense of self, and stays true to her true passion and spiritual ties to Native American culture, a community she has been active in most of her life.
Stormie’s work can be found painted around social media via her website, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and soon-to-be-launched blog! (She’s going to step out of her comfort zone and be less private, per my nagging request hehe)
Not too shabby a morning for Stormie, huh!? PS She’s toying with the idea of going with a Nyima Ward inspired themed costume for Halloween (they have the same hair) and I completely support her in this endeavor.
