STELLALTINAAN was created by Naan Pocen out of necessity from her inability to find unique and affordable fashion items. Naan was born and raised in Nigeria where she had her initial experience with colour and texture in fashion.
However, even as a young girl, she had always wanted to own unique items but she found out early on that style and individuality are not always in sync with the current fad. She realized that in order to have unique items she would have to create them herself and so she did for years.
And having lived in nine countries and three continents, her creation and design evolved and became more exotic as she borrowed ideas, textures and colours from the different cultures she had experienced. Then in 2007 while living in Italy, she learned jewellery making from local artisans. She also decided to enrol in a fashion school to formalize her training in Fashion and Sartorial design.
Today Naan uses all that exposure and training to create unique items combining colour, texture and comfort, by using couture method of dressmaking, and her items are indeed conversation pieces attracting compliments to wearers everywhere.
