Chike Mordi opened with a series of tribal prints fashioned in contemporary styles.
Monochrome graced the catwalk with splashes of patterned color, leather and sequins.
Show-stopping gowns in an espresso leather suit and blackened fish scale.
The Chike Mordi woman channels her wild side with equal measurement to her graceful side, able to embrace bold textures and fabrics with an appreciation for silhouette-enhancing cuts.
VIVA LA COCO
Viva La Coco impressed us with studded dresses, color-blocking patent leather separates and animal printed urban-wear design.
Practical and fun, this fuss-free line works for easy integration into your wardrobe, but don’t just take my word for it, ask the list of satisfied clients that include the likes of VH1 Mobwives Karen Gravano and Ramona Rizzo, and musical artists Waka Flocka, Jadakiss and Mya.
Combining the fluid nature of futuristic fashion with the architectural craftsmanship found in art installation, comes Joanna Hawrot statement pieces, built to captivate and seduce. From work to play, you’re covered.
Work-friendly apparel include wrapped cardigans over draped skirts and harem pants, hook-n-eye blouses with harem pants, a quilted two-set blouse and skirt, and a quilted wrap dress with wide leather belt.
For fun, Janna Hawrot serves up caped, draped, knitted, leather and latex dresses, with a finale kicker; a caped leather-jersey hybrid blouse with long leather skirt.
Individuals seeking adventure and versatility will find themselves right at home with Joanna Hawrot. (Please stay tuned for more coverage on Brooklyn Fashion Week until we reach our eighth Designer.)
