Fashion Week S/S 2010: Arise = Gorgeous!!

Last Friday, the Parlourmaids had the chance to spend the evening with four of Africa’s hottest designers courtesy of Arise Magazine at their “Promise of Africa” runway show. The verdict? Amazing. While I was no stranger to Jewel By Lisa (Nigeria), Tiffany Amber (Nigeria) and David Tlale (South Africa), I was floored by Eric Raisina’s presentation. The texture, color and silhouettes…pure lush and reflective of Eric’s Madagascar upbringing and time in Cambodia. Above are some faves from Jewel By Lisa, more after the jump!
