Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
ARISE Fall Fashion Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2010 New York Luxury Experience proudly presents Fabulous Fall 2010 Women's Fashions from Black Coffee, Deola Sagoe, Loin Cloth & Ashes, and Ports 1961, as we experienced the collections during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

 

 

Summer is winding down and autumn is just around the corner, are you ready? Prepare your closets for a few new "must-have" additions of inspired designs as you browse through the fabulous Fall 2010 Collections as seen on the runways in Bryant Park. 

The ARISE Magazine African Collective - Part III - Fall 2010 show featured exciting designs from three fashion houses, Black Coffee, Deola Sagoe, and Loin Cloth & Ashes. South African Designers Jacques Van Der Watt and Danica Lepen of Black Coffee took inspiration for their Fall 2010 Collection from "Pablo Picasso's reinterpretation of African masks for their Cubist collection." Their collection featured pleated and quilted coats and dresses in a color palate that focused on softer shades of rose, slate, putty, and flesh tones. The collection's coats and jackets were gorgeous with luscious details featuring overly large collars, fluid layers, and creative angles that maximized their fashion statement for confident, stylish women who enjoy an appreciative nod when it comes to dressing fashionably.

Tanzanian Designer Anisa Mpungwe of Loin Cloth & Ashes, found inspiration for Fall 2010 "from her father's hometown of Ifakara, Tanzania, an old, forgotten town village." Anisa's vision for her company is to create "dresses for that woman who dares to be different." She utilized a neutral color palette for her Fall 2010 collection, deftly using black, charcoal, stone, champagne, sand, bronze, gold, and charcoal for her collection of skinny pants, jodhpurs, slinky skirts, and mini dresses, where interesting details included South African made fabric and garment linings made and printed in Tanzania with Tanzanian inspired art.
