Just when we thought he couldn’t possibly outdo his resort collection, Frederick Anderson delivered yet another jaw dropping ensemble for SS24 at New York Fashion Week! The sprawling Edith Fabbri mansion on the Upper Eastside in Manhattan served as the perfect back drop to bring the storyline of sensual fabrication and intricate knit works to life!

MaxJenny, “Queen of Prints”

February 8, 2023 in General Blogs, News, Uncategorized by TINU NAIJA

Swedish designer MaxJenny is carving out a niche for herself in New York if her premiere fashion show today is anything to go by. The Swedish Consul General Camilla Mellander graciously offered her lavish Park Avenue pad to host the eclectic and stylish designer’s NYFW show today. The medley of styles (for all genders) sent down the sistine chapel ceiling inspired runway definitely did not disappoint. I think even the most jaded stylist and fashionista would concur. Prior to today, I’d never heard of the designer. To my surprise she’d dressed the likes of Madonna and the Swedish Crown Princess Victoria! MaxJenny’s fresh and approachable romantic fun take on print had me looking up where to acquire some her designs shortly after the show. She’s definitely one to watch.

Fashion For A Cause

February 2, 2023 in Causes, General Blogs, News, Uncategorized by TINU NAIJA

The 7th Annual Blue Jacket Fashion Show for Prostate Cancer Awareness left no stone unturned. The award winning designer and founder, Frederick Anderson pulled out all the stops by enlisting some bold name notables from his rolodex to sashay down the runway for a cause. An awareness for Prostate Cancer that just about benefits a great number of men worldwide. An effort to normalize regular check ups for the sake of good health and well being. But of course, why not use a fun-filled fashion show to draw the much needed attention to where it matters!

Heart surgeons, CNN news anchor, editors, actors…turned models for day did the event much needed justice bringing in great sense of humor and style to the runway. Ones to note in the video footage below includes but not limited to beloved CNN bad boy news anchor Don Lemon (who made my heart melt by vying off the runway to tell me how good I looked. See the video), seasoned model and Harlem ambassador Musa Jackson who gave me a cheek kisses (yes, I’m still blushing), celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson, Sex & The City Mario Cantone, celebrity stylist Ty-Ron Mayes who practically almost stole the show in breathtaking spiked shoulders and corset with killer sashay! Ahh…a night to remember indeed.

100% of all tickets generated from the show will directly go to ZERO Prostate Cancer.

After two year haitus of key fashion events, among many other things…NY fashion scene is roaring back with a vengeance. Not even corona could hold back the raw talents embedded within the tough fabric of the creative world. The Fashion Group International had a splendid award luncheon today in NYC, ushering in the next wave of emerging talents worthy of a much needed spotlight, including last year’s winner Eppersonn who won via virtual last year. Recipients of the awards ranged from new brands and designers, to well established legends in the industry who also got recognitions for paving the way. Legendary designer Byron Lars for instance, was presented with the President’s award for excellence. The competitive award categories included beauty, accessories, retail, men’s and women’s wear, etc. Many notables in the industry were in attendance…sans the mask! It felt good to be in a room full of fashion luminaries again and not via zoom, as it was the previous year due to the pandemic.

The FGI, as it is popularly known, provides members network with a forum for discussion and connection across all sectors through programming focused on the industry’s most current and crucial topics, recognition of emerging talent and trends at the zeitgeist of innovation.
