Osun Designs

Established in New York City in 1982, Osun Designs now operates in London, New York and Accra.  Featured in prestigious publications such as Pride, Black Beauty and the Guardian Weekend, they bring luxurious one-of-a-kind creations to all sizes.

Using striking, hand painted fabrics, Osun is the master of draping contemporary creations with an Afrikan flavored flair.  Shapes are simple and elegant and the results are stunning.

Suits, dusters, two piece shubu dresses, jumpsuits and elegant evening wrap dresses in bold colors and designs were draped across curves, artfully enhancing the body shapes underneath. My personal favorite was a strapless wrap evening dress in a bold black and white pattern with deep  flounced hem (right).  This is the sort of dress one wants for making a head turning entrance without feeling bare.

Prices of Garments Shown: $175-$285

Jewel Shannon

Known for sizzling high fashion swimwear and evening gowns, Jewel Shannon designs have graced runways from Canada to the Caribbean, New York to Florida.  Dangerous Curves unveiled the debut of the first Plus-size swimwear collection of poolside party fashion for true divas.

Electric lime, intense tangerine, hot pink, fire engine red, smoking hot blacks, and breath taking turquoise blues dyed fabrics bursting with glitz and shimmering glam. Ethereal chiffons swirled gracefully.  Body sculpting matching sarongs and wraps made hot curves hotter, and turned bathing suits into evening wear.

After viewing this swimwear collection, it is easy to see why Black Man's Magazine chose to feature Jewel Shannon's designs exclusively in their "Swimsuit Extra" and Dangerous Curves has decided to make purchases to feature in  their permanent traveling collection.

The grand finale showcased a preview of a new high fashion plus designer collection debuting this Fall/Winter Season. Monif C is co-owned by a mother-daughter design team inspired by New York night life and European style with a hint of the Caribbean.

Although they claim not to follow trends but make what they want to wear, Fall trends were evident. Chocolate browns and animal prints look hot for this coming Fall/Winter season which Monif C uses in tops, skirts and dresses, often mixing prints and solids in the same piece.

 Figure flattering drape neck halter tops were paired with everything from denim jeans to flutter skirts. Curve enhancing ruched and wrap dresses rounded out the collection. Fabrics featured silks, beading and velvets.

Prices of Garments Shown: $138-$265
