Kelechi Odu’s men’s line was the perfect mixture of traditional Western wear with African accents. His ability to incorporate soft bright colors like salmon, pink, yellow and still maintain strong masculine attributes is absolutely amazing. The tailored pants with the blazers are classic looks with Odu’s edge.

Jewel by Lisa was the very feminine and incorporated beautiful prints, which made her designs powerful. The line was very versatile in that it included long dresses, short dresses; pant suit, shorts and skirts. Jewel by Lisa covered every aspect of women’s day and eveningwear.
