Facebook invite: www.facebook.com/events/533969599987166 ABOUT 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.

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.

SCRIPTED DESIGNS BY SHAY SUTTON www.scripteddesigns.com
Scripted Designs began back in 2000 with a sketch pad and colored pencils and a vision that could stretch across a football field. It was not until the year 2007 that the first piece was created and hand sewn by Shay, who is a self taught designer. Shay received a BFA in Graphic Design in 2006 but decided to add her love of design and use it in a form of fashion as her form of poetry in motion. The name "Scripted Designs" originates from her love and passion of poetry: a writer herself since the age of 12, she uses her poetry and describes her emotions through fabric.
Scripted Designs creates pieces which are outspoken and eccentric.
Each piece of her collection has been featured in 25 shows from Philadelphia PA all the way to Columbia SC including The Style Exhibition 2009, 2010 & 2012. Throughout the years, the line has evolved and developed, adding additional high fashion and swimwear pieces.
