Best way to end the New York Fashion week was attending “Made in Africa” by Arise Magazine which was taking place at the historical Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center. This year 7 amazing Africa’s designers had taken part of Made in Africa by Arise Magazine collective which has include of Klûk CGTD, Pierre-Antoine Vettorello, Jewel by Lisa, Tsemaye Binitie, Lanre Da Silva, Asibelua and Bunmi Koko.

British Singer Leona Lewis gave a breath taking performance at the end of the Made in Africa by Arise Magazine Fashion show. The amazing singer performed “Collide”, “Better in Time”, “Bleeding Love” and Bruno Mars hit song “Grenade”. Boy, it was a great way to end the last night of Fashion week, I enjoyed it very much. She’s the Best!!!

Lisa Folawiyo, line founder for Jewel By Lisa has made her second appearance at Made in Africa by Arise Magazine this year at New York Fashion week. Jewel by Lisa is best known for its hand-embellished with sequins, Swarovski crystals and beads. Her collection is very modern with a touch of vintage style.

Tsemaye Binitie Spring/Summer 2012 Collection was very much range of neutral colors like black, white, rose pink, and grey with a bright pink and red cutout dress which was absolute amazing. Tsemaye seems like a very promising young talented designer. Arriving at stage to take the bow Tsemaye allowed his sister to enjoy the applause and have her shy in the spot light; he seems to love his sister very much and allowed for everyone to see how close they are. Tsemaye collection is all about the women.

Lanre Da Silva reinterprets the trendy of bright mixed looks with a define lady-like filled with a uniform color for her Spring 2012 Collection.

Asibelua’s Spring 2012 Collection was very African patterns and cultures with modern style. Her designs are so much bright colors but not making it look too much. Gorgeous!
