Where do you get your inspiration from?
Bad science fiction movies, Dungeons and Dragons and really cute kittens.
What is your favorite piece from your collection?
I can't really have favorites, otherwise I get too sad when I sell them. I'm pretty fond of most of my monsters with glass eyes in them though.

I make monsters.

Inspiration comes form all around - nature, architecture, fashion design, fine art and an occasional misshapen vegetable.

How would you describe you and your company in a couple sentences?
Zazu Faure/Los Angeles makes toys of reclaimed materials--using all the discards and scraps to fashion one of a kind animals without formal patterns. The plush designs are striped down to their essential forms, using a limited amount of moves to render each animal's essential characteristics. Each animal is unique--made of laundered repurposed wool and cashmere sweaters filled with organic cotton. Our motto is "flotsam and jetsam repurposed."

How long have you been doing this?
I've been sewing for 15 years, but baby by stevie got started 9 months ago when I couldn't find a tie I liked for my 6-week old baby boy.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
My main inspiration is my son. Like all boys, he looks so dashing all dressed up, but there was a serious lack of stylish neckwear for little boys out there. I like to choose fabrics that I can't take my eyes off of.
What is your favorite piece from your collection?
The hot pink and grey striped necktie has such a unique mix of colors. I love the differing stripe widths and the way it goes with almost any shirt or suit. (first tie seen below)
How would you describe you and your company in a couple sentences?
I have a BS in clothing design and worked as a patternmaker for Vera Wang in NYC before moving back to California and starting baby by stevie. The crew at baby by stevie all share my vision: revising the lack of studly styles available to all the little guys out there!
