Hariette Cole debuts luxury crochet accessories at NY Fashion Week 2012

Harriette Cole debuted a new line of crocheted accessories this month at NY Fashion Week.  Harriette curated luxury fibers, which she used to create scarves, wraps, hats, and gloves for her 108 Stitches Harriette Cole Collection.

The collection was shown at the Hair Rules Salon in New York City, and it has received several favorable mentions since it was shown.  You can view the collection at

In addition to her new role as designer for 108 Stitches, Harriette also presides over Harriette Cole Media.  She is also the former lifestyle editor of Essence Magazine, creative director of Ebony Magazine, and Today Show contributor.

I met Harriette this weekend at Blogalicious, and we talked about her new luxury crochet collection, fibers, and pricing.  Harriette loves yummy fibers like cashmere, alpaca, silk, and even paper.  I suggested that she design something scrumptious for one of the crochet publications.  I enjoyed meeting and talking to Harriette, and I look forward to connecting with her in the future.  I always get excited when I meet people who are doing big things with crochet!

  1. Hello! I am so pleased to make your acquaintance! I’m Cami and I blog crochet, fashion, and all kinds of good stuff on my website. I was following you on Twitter and was attracted here by the title of your post. I loved your article. Yes, it’s very exciting to hear about people doing new things in crochet and fashion. I am very interested in emerging designers (or seasoned designers with new projects.) Thank you so much for sharing. I’ll be subscribing by RSS, and I look forward to hearing much more from you and also from 108 Stitches! Best, Cami 🙂 @artlikebread
