Stacey has wanted to work in fashion ever since she was a wee lass and watched a television profile of Madonna's bridal dress designer circa 1985. Growing up, Saturday mornings were spent devouring episodes of "Style With Elsa Klensch" with a sketchbook in one hand and color pencils in the other (she credits Madame Klensch with teaching her the correct pronunciations of "Gianfranco Ferré" and "Thierry Mugler").
After graduating from university with a degree in fashion design, she ultimately spent most of her time backstage in London and New York City, shuffling between Fashion Week and theatrical costuming gigs.
For over a decade, she has penned her take on fashion through her blog, The Dedicated Follower of Fashion (http://fashionfollower.com), which explores the inextricable link between rock music, fashion and pop culture.
Topping her extensive list of style heros: 70's-era Rod Stewart, Michael Jackson Off the Wall, Gucci Fall '95 collection, Jamel Shabazz's Back in the Days, Goldie Hawn in Cactus Flower, mod-period Barbie, and classic episodes of "Soul Train".
