Why Every Nigerian Woman Would Approve Oscar de la Renta SS 2015 RTW

Why Every Nigerian Woman Would Approve Oscar de la Renta SS 2015 RTW

On the sensibilities of Carolina Herrera Spring 2015 RTW-Runway

One of the abiding qualities of Carolina Herrera is her standard for exceptional designs. Today, she did not disappoint. The new collection presented by Ms. Herrera at the New York Fashion Week raised the tone for what fashion designing is and should be always.

Meet Costello Tagliapietra’s New Collection (The Ones To Love)

It is surprising to hear people say that the Costello Tagliapietra’s new collection “make women feel beautiful” when in fact they don’t.
