Nolcha Fashion Week: New York, now in its seventh year and held simultaneously to New York Fashion Week, is proud to announce that B’Venaj will be joining the schedule in September 2014 for the Spring/Summer 2015 collections.
B’venaj, established by designer Vanessa Teye, is a clothing and accessory brand which creates a division between the ordinary and extraordinary through eclecticism.. Growing up in Ghana, Vanessa watched her mother transform her client’s closet into timeless pieces. This motivated her at thirteen to pursue a career in fashion.
Designer Vanessa Teye comments’ “It’s an opportunity of a life time to be involved in Nolcha Fashion Week: New York. I am thrilled in every sense of the word. Our vision is to go beyond merely designing and selling clothing but to help our customers find the beauty in themselves in a way that is unique and appropriate for that individual.”
The signature style of B’Venaj is feminine and eclectic, vintage yet modern with the use of African prints and western fabrics with influences taken from the human figure, what is perceived on a daily basis and nature. B’Venaj demonstrates the philosophy of freedom in her garments through the use of fabrics such as chiffon and charmeuse.
Kerry Bannigan, CEO of Nolcha Fashion Week shares,”We are thrilled to welcome international fashion designers to our runway during New York Fashion Week. It is a key time for a brand to break into the USA market. B’Venaj’s brand philosophy, signature style and quality finishing touches makes for a great brand and I look forward to the runway show.”
