Spring is a colorful season, a time when plants, insects, birds as well as our furry friends celebrate by flaunting exuberant colors that lift one's spirit and dazzle the onlookers. To help fashion lovers celebrate spring in style, The Houston, Texas fashion house TeKay Designs has released a new collection for 2012.
This colorful collection will be showcased at the African Ball hosted by Culturally Yours on March 31, 2012 at the Marriott Hotel, The Rose Garden Ballroom, 2900 Briarpark Dr, Houston TX 77042.
"A very important aspect of human visual experience is colour," states Creative Director Ms. Kimma Wreh. "Color is powerful! Colours are fraught with symbolism, and cultural influences. There is also a physiological effect when color is applied. For example, the color yellow has proven to stimulate the brain. This stimulation can make you more alert and decisive. This colour actually makes muscles more energetic. Also, the color orange is known to have positive effects on your emotional state. This colour helps relieve feelings of self-pity, a lack of self-worth and unwillingness to forgive. The color orange is mentally stimulating as well as socially inviting."
For the spring season, TeKay Designs has introduced an ethnic-wear evening line of colourful sexy tops, skirts and dresses designed for the woman who is not afraid to show her curves. The garments are made with Aso-ake fabric, hand woven in Nigeria, and infused with gorgeous laces, trims, and scarves. The Aso-ake fabrics are limited edition and some are one of a kind.
In addition, TeKay Designs offers an ethnic casual and semi-formal collection of multicoloured jumpsuits, jackets, skirts, tops, and dresses made of Ankara fabrics and adorned with trims. Moreover, Wreh added a few couture ethnic-designs, which may be worn to banquets, galas and red carpet events. Her inspiration for culturally inspired fashions stems from her desire to incorporate significant historic fabric into TeKay Designs ethnic-fashion line.
"Historically, skilled Cloth Dyers and Fabric Weavers are revered throughout the West African region and beyond for their artistic creativity. Cloth Dyers and Kente Weavers have become a force for alleviating poverty and affirming identity across West Africa. They are the creators of colourful fabrics. They are a reflection of how colors can bring about positive change." states Kimma Wreh.
Lifestyle trends can be influenced by social-cultural changes, such as artistic movements. “As a tribute to African culture, I've incorporated colorful hand woven kente fabrics into my line of bridal gowns. Today's brides are demanding cultural elements that complement traditional European style wedding dresses," notes Ms. Wreh.
The psychological power of color combined with the therapeutic power of gems is a complement to colorful fashions. "At TeKay Designs, we create ethnic inspired jewelery pieces that are designed to complement our ethnic-fashions. Our jewelery is created with a variety of high quality materials. We include Swarvorski crystals, vintage rhinestones, corals, tiger eye beads, glass beads, turquoise nuggets, wood and sea shells.
