Fashion Week Recap: Arise African Promise Collective


Hey guys, it’s me again with your FRIDAY FASHION FIX! I hope the week treated you all well and if it didn’t just thank God it’s FRIDAY!

Now back to regular programming, so this week was Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City and it was pretty live. The people were looking good, designers were ready to show the world what they’ve been doing for the past six months and ARISE: African Promise Collective was in full effect. Last Friday, this 20 minute show, sponsored by Arise Magazine and ThisDay Group, consisted of young African designers Tiffany Amber, David Tlale, Eric Raisina and Jewels by Lisa. Each of these designers, I feel, have a point of view they want to get across to this seemingly one-dimensional industry and through this show they made it known that AFRICA can do just good, if not better!

So let’s take a look at some of the looks from each designer.

  1. I looked at her site, Jewels By Lisa, and she has some great stuff…LOVED THEM ALL!

    What made me even more proud was the fact that they were all relatively young! Kudos to them all!
