Designer Crush

There are so many designers and we wish we could have them all. From time to time we develop a designer crush so here's our latest loves...
Azéde Jean-Pierre, a Haitian born designer who designs with a free spirit and sustainability in mind. Her designs are powerful, feminine and meticulously crafted. It doesn't hurt to dress Mrs. Obama sometimes.
Maki Oh,  Lagos-based designer Amaka Osakwe creates has a unique approach to print and embellishment. Her pieces are playful yet serious with unconventional layers of fabrics from Lurex, feathers to denim and fringe. We understand why Solange loves it so much.
Anna October, The Ukraine born designer was a finalist for the LVMH prize in 2014. Trained as a pattern maker and tailor, Anna's pieces are innovative and superbly made with ruffles and bold colors.
After 20 years as a stylist in L.A.  Agnes Badoo, started her line of fine leather bags. Beautifully crafted, the simple design represents luxury and function and comes in a variety of sizes. The antithesis to the "it" bag, Badoo's bags are timeless and effortless.
