Oh Lisa! Jewel by Lisa is the modern chic Nigerian girl’s fairytale. There is just something about JBL pieces that we can infinitely relate to. Well, ladies, after the collection which Jewel by Lisa showed at the ARISE Promise of Africa Collective Show at New York Fashion Week, we are going to have to start sharing ‘our’ Lisa with the world. The collection was pitch-perfect, filled with dazzling yet refreshingly wearable pieces of African origin yet inspired by the adventurous, sensual and stylish aura of the New York Woman. With so many sparkly pieces, it was hard to choose a favourite so we went in the opposite direction, a basic yet oh-so-fab bang-on trend jumpsuit. Hello world, Jewel by Lisa is here to stay!

“The first presentation, Jewel by Lisa, was the standout collection of the evening. Her bold color palette, which includes a rich mustard, blood red and an ocean blue, are easy on the eye and her charming paisleys and mosaic prints were the perfect foil for the intricate beadwork on her dresses” – The New York Post
“The boho chic collection was distinguished by a mix African fabrics and traditional textiles, and exquisite hand-embellished beads, sequins, and Swarovski crystals” – Splendid City.com
