Chefanie and Stubbs & Wootton’s caviar shoes collaboration
Manhattan-based culinary influencer, creative caterer and designer Stephanie Nass of Chefanie launches a made-to-order garment line that offers the perfect pairing for any summer setting.
What’s cooking in the kitchen with designer and culinary expert Stephanie Nass? A lot, to say the least. As the premier destination for the one-stop dinner party shop, Stephanie Nass of Chefanie (chefanie.com) elevates every tablescape with her curation of homeware, treats, accessories and tableware. Since parties are back and better than ever, it seemed only necessary for the hostess with the mostest to launch garments crafted with tablescape essentials such as bamboo.
“It started with a self sh desire for clothes I wanted to wear,” says Nass. “A few years ago, I made a dress from excess tablecloth fabric. The response was flattering... as satisfying as selling tableware that people wanted for celebratory tables. We had a few styles photographed for the website and are now making the garments to order. Made-to-order means that we produce based on orders that we receive, minimizing waste.”

Since her plate is always full with good ideas, her latest collaboration with Stubbs & Wootton embroiders Chefanie’s signature food motifs onto the label’s famous slippers. The collaboration between the two seemed nothing but natural, given the brands’ passion for food and fashion. Made with linen and denim fabrics, these lavish loafers are perfect for food aficionados.
Nass knows that pulling together the perfect dinner party can be a valid cause of summer stress. With a prowess in both the design and culinary fields, she dishes her dinner decor tip for the most successful soiree.
“Every host should have a collection of cocktail napkins; they start conversations, make guests laugh and set the tone for the event,” says Nass. “They are equally as perfect for casual drinks as for more formal dinner parties. We have so many different styles but can also customize them with names, logos and initials.”
