Nigeria-born Azénabor grew up with her grandmother and mother beading African prints. That cultural tradition has transcended into her designs by conceptualizing her fascination for heavy beading, crocheted lace and embroidery. Inspired by a combination of vintage, African, Egyptian, and contemporary European influences, she merged cultures to create her luxurious, signature collection bearing her full name.
The inspiration for the themed runway show originated when her father brought six-year-old Azénabor to see Phantom of the Opera in London, England. The draping of the backdrop, set design, rich materials, and elaborate costumes visually stimulated and mesmerized her. The opportunity to platform this noteworthy designer’s pieces with the theme that initiated her pursuit of fashion marks a milestone in her career.
The non-profit corporation Our Hearts Day Center (www.ourheartsdayhab.com) will receive 100% of the proceeds from the Phantom of the Runway show to focus on providing a safe environment for teens and adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities such as Autism, Aspergers, Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and others. Our Hearts Day Center was founded to give families of people with special needs another option. A safe, loving, family like atmosphere where the educational gains that have been made in school continue to be reinforced and socialization with their peers using art, outings, activities, music, games and more are a focus.
Azénabor’s passion for helping others aligned perfectly with Our Hearts Day Center to create a powerful partnership
