BESPOKE: AFRICAN PRINTS AT SUGAR HILL MARKET

At the Sunday, May 4th Sugar Hill x Harlem Garage, African prints will be one of the notable trends mixed in with other modern merchandise.  Prints have been trending for quite some times but now a younger generation of designers and style-makers have embraced another ethnic alternative.  Asian or Native Indian patterns have been around for quite some times but traditional African wax prints are now considered a little more contemporary to the fashionable set.

Uptown's girl-about-town Paola Mathe will be debuting a line of stylish head-wraps from her line called Fanm Djanm which is a popular saying for "strong woman" in Haiti where she is originally from.  Shoppers will be able to purchase beautiful traditional fabrics and Ms. Mathe will be on hand to show how to wrap them appropriately: LINK

Dream of Fashion will also be present with a capsule collection inspired by the local designer's Ghanian heritage.  As with most of the artisans represented at Sugar Hill Market, custom work will also be offered along with one-on-one consulting: LINK

A. Bernadette will also return with their innovative, signature African print bags that have special, matching insulated fabric pouches which keep food cold or warm for hours.  These will be great for the upcoming beach and picnic weather: LINK


Sugar Hill Market x Harlem Garage will be this Sunday, May 4th at Harlem Garage, 318 West 118th Street between FDB and Manhattan Avenue.  There will also be vintage clothing collections for men & women, food vendors, antiques and many other selections perfect for the upcoming Mother's Day.  Those who want direct Facebook updates should follow the official site: LINK
