Date: Tuesday, July 31, 2012. Venue: 49 Grove NYC.
Nestled into the West Village and hidden within a lower level was a one-of-a-kind 4-designer runway extravaganza. Nailah Lymus of Amirah Creations showcased her extrinsic Womenswear, joined by Ana Segura of Flavours Collection, who supplied the line with exquisite ladies scarf tops.
A category for Menswear was presented by Dramatik Fanatik, who also collaborated with Flavours Collection for a bold choice of Men’s headdresses. All accessories provided by Caribbean Lilac Jewelry and a chosen few by Moderday Mogul Bowtie Line.
Amirah Creations and Flavours Collection served up a mix of colorful, neutral and ethnic prints. The theme was effortless-chic, stylistically transitional for seasonal use by layering during Fall/Winter.
The ease of a sleeveless soft gray jersey dress spruced with antiquity gold accents, a violet draped tribal scarf dress, paired with dangling and chunky adornments. Other vibrant choices included a magenta wrap dress with spiked hoop earrings, and a tie-dye halter wrap dress rivaled by a colossal bib necklace and chunky earrings.
A daring citrus scarf top shined with zebra Capri pants and statement jewelry. The playfulness of a bubblegum pink wrap top matched with funky floral-animal printed Capri pants, and a Moderday Mogul Bowtie contrast with a bib necklace and strand earrings. More traditional options included a purple scarf top paired with a tribal skirt, but modernized with artsy earrings and spiked stacked bracelets.
My all-time favorite came in an ivory wrap halter top coupled with harem pants, spiked hoops, a dazzling mineral ring/bracelet combo, and stacked bracelets.
Dramatik Fanatik Men’s Collection was a mix of harem pants, leopard print and boy shorts, fully equipped with Caribbean Lilac’s enticingly mystifying accessory pieces.
A glimpse of a striking thunderbolt earring came to pass, followed by lavish displays of chain-wear spanning neck to arm, chain harnesses harmonized with bib necklaces, and cuffs in leather and spike with a flash piece from Moderday Mogul Bowtie.
