One of my most memorable fashion experiences was attending the ARISE show during New York Fashion Week a few years ago. It was a spectacular production consisting of the most amazing designers from Africa. ARISE, the continent’s global style and culture magazine, outdid itself again with a fashion week in Lagos, Nigeria a few days ago. Please enjoy video highlights and this CNN article!

I’m a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I’ve been “reporting” from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I’d sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, “I think you need a blog!” LOL! I’ve been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
