KIA VONVEGA AND CLEAR BOUTIQUE www.clearboutique.com

Founded in 2006 by Kia Vonvega, Clear Boutique’s new collection of gorgeous dresses and sultry bikinis were an instant hit with woman looking to make a bold sexy statement with flattering fits.
Kia Vonvega’s “Clear Boutique” garments are always a fun, energetic treat with plenty decadence, bursts of color, and eye popping patterns. Sexy pieces like a gold leather mini dress and pants suit, a beautiful bra top, and a zip-up patterned mini dress paired with a bright garments.

Soon, celebrity women were hitting the clubs in Clear Boutique wear. Patterns, vibrant prints, contemporary cuts and mesh details adorn Kia’s work in every luxurious quality dress and bespoke bikini.

The brains - and body - behind the collection, celebrity designer Kia, says she wanted to design “something that would let women show off their bodies, feel sexy and confident, flirty and glamorous all at the same time while transitioning from beautiful day wear into night wear.”
Kia searched for unique fabrics, added embellishments and experimented with sexy cuts. The pieces are based on a look from day to night with a fit that feels just right. The clientele love the body-flattering design of these dresses, the mesh hollow out is avant-garde and very sensuous.

Kia’s passion for couture kicked in at an early age. Kia’s grandfather was the first black male to turn into production a pair of jeans in the island country of Trinidad. Picking from his innovations, Kia shaped her knowledge of sewing and fashion with femininity and sensuality, boudoir-inspired lines, vibrant colors, grabbing the attention of the fashion, media and celebrity worlds.

If you are on hunt for a sassy new dress or bikini that shows off your every curve or you want to make a statement and express your individual style and attitude, then bring your sense of fun over to the iconic Clear Boutique.

FRO-NATIONALE "AFRICANA" COLLECTION by AMY NEWTON www.fronationale.com
(Fashion Institute of Technology Graduate)
Fro-Nationale signifies an ethnically contemporary style, which offers a unique blend of vivacity and traditional ethnic symbolism, converted into a modern aesthetic. Featuring bold lines and immaculate craftsmanship, the "Africana" collection dresses will command attention, in the workplace and are versatile enough for a night on the town.
Founder of Fro-Nationale, Amy Newton, has always celebrated the spirit of ethnic cultures and embraces everything that they bring from the beautiful textiles to the expressive symbolism. Her inspired designs evoke this emotion and combines them with a contemporary overlay. The sheer panels in her dresses show the perfect amount of skin without being over the top. The technique is manipulated by creating paintings and printing them onto luxe fabric of the highest quality silk. Each piece is unique and can never be re-created.
Although born in London, UK, Amy has been an NYC native for the last 6 years and was educated in NYC at FIT. She is a driven and successful executive who was inspired to design a line that allowed her to express her creativity. Fro-Nationale captures the spirit and style of women like Amy Newton, who is the woman who doesn't follow trends, she makes them. With a style as diverse and spirited as the women who wear us, with garments for day or night - at work, at play or at any event, Fro-Nationale has a hidden treasure for all.

NBD COLLECTIONS ("Natural Born Dollface") by JAZMYN EDMONDS
Edmonds' own weapons of choice are her own imagination and the humble pencil, which she wields with the utmost precision.
When it came to fashion, standing out was first nature to Edmonds. She was very comfortable with mixing different patterns and colors, she was never afraid to take a risk.
Edmonds' collection is inspired by love, beauty, art and bohemia at its finest. NBD Collections use Swarovski crystals, studs, gems and buckets of glitter to create garments that are literally out of this world. She received inspiration by nail art - Bella Gema Nails is a huge influence of hers. "Everything is over the top and absolutely fabulous and at an affordable cost!" Edmonds says. "A lot of the time Haute Couture really can't be worn because it's over the top, however my line teaches my clients that you can be over the top while balancing it out with a laid back look" Her line will "leave the world in shock".
Now she's just weeks away from hosting her first launch party for her clothing line and she couldn't be more thrilled.
Highly educated, Jazmyn graduated from East Hartford High School and is doing a business major specializing in Entrepreneurship at the Metropolitan College of New York. She is taking evening division classes at the private conservatory, The Juilliard School in New York City this upcoming spring.

YOONHEEK & DAHN BY YOONHEE JOE & DAHN DUANGKAMOL (Fashion Institute of Technology Graduates) www.dahnnyc.com
Yoonheek & Dahn's couture high fashion bikini and couture label has been described as minimal & futuristic with a sophisticated architectural feel.

Yoonhee Joe is a Fashion Institute of Technology Graduate with years of experience in designing for her name sake label Yoonheek. Dahn Duangkamol graduated from Fashion Institute of Technology and worked at Victor de Souza. She currently develops her own line, Dahn.Duangkamol.

The pair joined forces to create Yoonheek & Dahn, a collection borne out of their love for Frank O. Gehry's post modern architectures and minimizing decorative small details. Their label is attracting plenty of attention for its well thought-out structured, razor-sharp take on minimalism. The pair was inspired by color blocking, as a cold geometrical abstract painting. They create structurally interesting shapes by adding asymmetrical cutting lines and unusual neck, sleeves and bottom hem construction.

Universally flattering for almost all skin tones and so unique in combination with white, the look's main colors are pale pink, beige and only small portions of color as highlights)

"Fashion has been a fundamental part of my life", says Bertha Alicia Astor. "Design, sewing and making clothes it's a passion and an obsession."

"Obradoiro de Moda" translates to "Fashion Atelier" in Galician language and was created with an outlook on easy, fashionable, couture pieces. Chic and classic to the average woman and extremely versatile, it was inspired by 1950's with contemporary twist. The silhouette on these amazing dresses are for those women who appreciate effortless style with a contemporary, unique, design edge.

"Obradoiro de Moda" symbolizes the woman of today with the classic look that is characterized by an elegant woman, combined with a focus on producing the perfect cut to create a chic aesthetic.
