CZΛRI Debuts at SU

_MG_5856The CZVRI Syracuse launch (more information on CZVRI can be found here) on Friday, October 18th, was filled with bright prints, street style-esque clothing, live rap music, and feisty models. Although the main purpose of the event was to celebrate the launch of CZVRI in Syracuse, the models also sported clothing from Sousou by Esesua Ikpefan (a beautifully crafted line which prominently features traditional prints from Africa).

The models themselves were pulled from both ASU and HASA (who were the organizers of the event). The models walks were a pleasure to walk. It was more of a happy runway show, and the models joy and happiness were clearly visible in their walks. The show was peppered with musical interludes by different rap groups, and at several points the audience got up and danced along. The overall mood of the show mirrored shows like Anna Sui.

The CZVRI line itself is casual, yet cute, and takes much of its inspiration from diversity of NYC. The Sousou clothing was very tailored, and elegant, but with an element of fun. My favorite look from the show came from the Sousou line, and was a short yellow dress with a beautiful butterfly print. The dress is slightly lower in the back then the front, which adds an element of flirtatiousness. Overall, the presentation felt like a celebration of diversity, and worked well with the clothing. You can purchase the CZVRI line here.
