BERKELEY -- Local women's clothing designer Stella Carakasi will open a new store at 1370 10th Street, next to the Stella Carakasi Design House.

The Stella Studio will showcase the latest Stella Carakasi collection, host trunk shows and sample sales, and serve as a gathering space for local community events. The grand opening is July 31, 4-6 p.m.

The Stella Carakasi collection, a division of Berkeley-based hemp clothing company Two Star Dog, launched a year ago, and features women's clothing that combines European influences with California's relaxed style. The clothes are made from organic cotton, bamboo and hemp. There is also Stella Carakasi Boutique at 5410 College Ave. in Oakland.
