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.
Taking a cue from sassy, stylish New York women-think Sarah Jessica Parker- the summer collection sees snippy shorts, slim leg pants, mini cocktail frocks and leather-mix biker jackets in a cacophony of color off-set-with batik-inspired silk prints.
