ARISE African Promise Collective Runway Show Spring 2010
Making a presence at New York Fashion Week for the second straight season is the ARISE African Collective for spring 2010. The four presenting designers included Jewel by Lisa, returning designer Tiffany Amber, Eric Raisina Haute Textures and David Tlale. Pairing Africa's top design talent with the world's most wanted models of color makes for one of the most exciting runway events of the week.
Setting the tone for the evening was Jewel by Lisa, who sent 12 models down the runway in bright Ankara prints embellished with hand beaded details, sequins, crystals, glass and fringe. The line, which was founded by Lisa Folawiyo in 2005 stormed onto the Nigerian fashion scene and has quickly become a global sensation.
