Over the weekend the IDOL Team was informed that we had lost a friend and talented designer, Scott Stevenson. The Wisconsin native was genuinely just as sweet and likable as he was talented, and could make haute couture out of garbage bags. He was sought after by some of the greatest editors, stylists, and designers of our time – being commissioned to create custom pieces for luxury brands like Chanel and Dior. He always spoke highly of his friend and mentor Carine Roitfeld who pushed and motivated him to create his latest collection inspired by Americana. He often collaborated with her on custom pieces for her title CR. He has outfitted your favorite pop stars like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, and most recently being commissioned by Lady Gaga to make a custom piece for her BudLight Dive Bar Tour.

A GoFundMe Page has been created in his honour, to assist with funeral arrangements, and any extra funds will go towards an exhibition of his work. We would like to celebrate Scott’s life and talent.
