• LONGEVITY SERIES

    Stephanie Hensley's eponymous collection of footwear as art, The Longevity Series, is inspired by Stephanie's four years' living in China. Many of the details in the design pay homage to China's unique and rich cultural traditions and history, which have been modernized and morphed. Another large commentary encapsulated in The Longevity Series is the stigma of the phrase "Made in China" and all that it represents. The Longevity Series subverted this stigma by working with Chinese craftspeople to produce a collection of luxury, handmade, high quality footwear in a country largely known for producing cheap, low quality goods.
