Denise Focil

At the recent Project Women’s trade show in Las Vegas, I bumped into Denise Focil, the designer of Torrance. Calif.–based AS by DF and ASTARS. The designer mentioned she has an exclusive style bowing at Calypso St. Barth and now the style has launched.

AS by DF’s “Revolution Shag” crochet vest is available on Calypso St. Barth’s website and in select Calypso St. Barth boutiques. The $350 handmade loop sweater vest is created using a two-step process: first the base layer is knit then shag loops are individually attached.
