Stephen Goudeau grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana and has always had a creative eye. After completing high school, he wanted to attend a fashion college in New York but his parents encouraged him to get a more specialized education. He decided to attend The University of New Orleans majoring in Mass Communications and Public Relations. One day, Stephen decided to test his skill by bringing one of his sketches to life. He continued to develop his skill set and within 5 years, he started his own design label.
Studio 6th Sense was formed in 2009 and focused on “lifestyle ready to wear” which catered to the every day woman. With only 3 years under his belt, Stephen’s “Eat Cake” Summer 2013 Collection debuted on the runway and received raved reviews. Stephen returned to New York and released “The Eternal Submission” Fall/Winter 2013 Collection and “Religious Paradise” Spring/Summer 2014 collection. He received an influx of requests from celebrity stylists and his clothing was seen on celebrities in various media and editorial outlets.
Stephen gained so much attention after showing in New York Fashion Week, he was pulled in many directions and felt that he lost sight of his business goals. His creative direction had evolved in a very short period of time so in 2014, the label moved forward under his name sake Stephen Goudeau.
