Chelsea Paris Collaborates With Jean-Pierre Braganza

Loved her at first sight…well at least her collection ;-), but could switch camps if I can get my dainty paws on her Ada Bronze/Gold shoes, aptly named after yours truly ;-). OK, stretched the truth there a bit, but my first name is Ada.

According to the gorgeous diva herself – Theresa Ebagua, her luxury footwear is inspired by her African heritage and passion for creating unique, immaculately-constructed shoes. We loved her in issue 10 DivaScribe see image below and are totally made-up about her brands collaboration with Jean-Pierre Braganza.

Designers Blamed For Arise Magazine March 2013 Fashion Show Cancellation!

Though Arise proposed to bring 50 designers to Lagos, however, due to the tight deadlines most people [allegedly] found it very difficult to participate this year. It was claimed that many designers were experiencing problems in regards to shipping, vaccinations, logistics, visas, getting the collections ready, etc.

Thus – ARISE Magazine Fashion Week management today announced that its proposed AMFW 2013 event, scheduled for March 28-1 April, has been postponed due to technical and logistical reasons. Are the designers’ really to blame or are were other factors? The mind boggles…a week’s notice is hardly ideal.

In its place they are announcing TWO shows; the first will take place during IMG Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week from 5-12th September 2013, showcasing Spring/Summer 2014 collections; and the second event will be the annual AMFW – Lagos 2014, to celebrate Nigeria’s 100th Anniversary.

All expenses with regards to incidentals – visa etc. incurred by affected designers’would be reimbursed….silver linings and all :D.
