This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending a MKPR Branding Agency Production called By Way of Africa LAFW Runway Show featuring Sierra Leone designer Sidratu Maju.

Sidratu Spring 2013 Collection, was titled  L'iconnue: The Unknown.  I had a wonderful time at the fashion show, the music spun by DJ Crash and there were fabulous jewelry and skin care vendors available as well.


Each piece of the collection was truly beautiful and well thought out. Maju creations embraced feminine curves.  The L'iconnue collection was structured, classic and very chic.  The collection included dresses, jackets, pants, and jumpsuits.  


I had a hard time picking out my favorite, piece but if I must pick I choose the black and red jumpsuit and the yellow suit! Sorry, I couldn't just pick one : )


Here is the collection, take a look:

Last Monday, I had the pleasure of attending new designer, Sommer Green's fashion showcase here in Los Angeles.

Sommer Green is a beautiful curvy model who is adding fashion designer to her list of many talents. Sommer is currently signed with IPM Models

I first met Sommer, last weekend at Elite Curves International Presents Haute Curves fashion show were she ripped the runway.

I had a second to speak to Sommer about her line, take a look. 


Is this your first line and what are you calling the line? 

Yes, this is my first line! I named the collection - 12 OH! 1, my birthdate.  This collection is the birth of a new part of me.

What is your inspiration for this line?

The inspiration for the 12 OH! 1 line comes from a trip to Dubai. The line reflects my take on what I saw as Middle Eastern fashion, if it were to have a westernized twist to it.

How would you describe this line?

I would describe my line as an easy wear line for the jet setter.  It is for the woman who loves being comfortable but stays chic.  She is feminine, yet she has a bit of edge to her.

What will be the price point/range of this line?

The price point/range of this line is $70-$150

Do you have a website, which tells everyone more about Sommer 


My website is and the website for my line will launch during November 2012, just in time for the holidays.


I would describe Sommer's new line as being beautiful and chic, edgy with a dash of sexiness.  The colors are vibrant, the fabrics are elegant, flowing, and caress the curves.   Some of the looks have a hood, which adds a bit of mystery. I love the line and look forward to purchasing several of the pieces. 


Here are a few photos I shot of the 12 OH! 1 collection at the showcase. 


(As you know, I'm not a professional photographer later this year I will be featuring Sommer's full line and you will get to see professional photos of her collection) : )
