West African Fashion Designer MARENIKAE premieres new line at RAGTRADE ATLANTA
(Atlanta, GA) RAGTRADE ATLANTA is the newest leading producer for presenting emerging designers in Atlanta and during this week long series of events will be holding unique conversation on how West African fashion has had on Western culture with emerging Nigerian designer MARENIKAE. The emerging designer will be joined on stage with owner/founder of RAGTRADE Angela Watts for this conversation to be followed by an exciting runway showing of MARENIKAE's newest line.
Nigerian born MARENIKAE is a recent transplant to Atlanta, GA and is excited about the opportunity to introduce the Nigerian culture to Atlantans. "Growing up in Nigeria, every family has a family tailor. Its ingrained in our culture to design what you and your family are going to wear. I took it one step further and started designing pieces that merged American culture with African culture. Many people wouldn't wear the full traditional garb but they would something that has cultural inspiration," she says. "I have been inspired by being a part of a global community. I share these two communities and I'm passionate about bringing the two together. This is my first show in the states and its very fitting that it's a fusion of Western European clothes mixed with West African culture."
West meets West will feature supermodel Jessica White and celebrity male model Q. White is world renown supermodel seen on runways across the country and has been featured in editorials such as Sports Illustrated, Harper's Bazaar and Teen Vogue.
West meet West will be held at the beautiful AC Hotel Atlanta Buckhead at Phipps Plaza with a red carpet reception beginning at 6pm and conversation at promptly at 7pm.
