Day 4 was all about African fabric and animal prints. Being Nigerian, I’ve been influenced by ankara fabric my entire life. It is so beautiful, lively and goes perfectly with my personality As you’ve probably guessed, my favorite African designer to wear is Jewel by Lisa. Her vibrant colors and bead work are exquisite. I will be interviewing Lisa soon for a piece I am writing for Heritage1960, so excited! Today, I am wearing a top from her line and carrying her handmade beaded clutch. I love mixing African and animal prints. The animal print acts as a neutral, allowing the ankara to shine. I attended Tracy Reese and Zac Posen. Tracy was fun and vibrant. I especially loved her low colorblocked wedges. Zac Posen totally blew me away! So much beauty in one show. He is a genius. In between shows, I caught dinner with stylists Ty Hunter and Wayman Deon. It’s so much fun to catch up with friends during fashion week!
