Arizona Storytellers: John Stevens
KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series.
John Stevens was a storyteller at the recent fashion-themed storytelling night. Stevens is the visual manager of Barney's New York in Scottsdale.
Many years ago, he worked in Los Angeles in visual merchandising. One day, Stevens and his colleague Wolfgang had to arrange a display window for a sophisticated high-end bridal line. They hoped to impress the designer Jim Hjelm when he came for the fashion show the next day.
