Songstress Somi in the Sarai! October 10 2014, 0 Comments

Jazz songstress Somi wore the Onyii & Co. Sarai for her Chicago performance on 'The Salon Tour'!  She looked absolutely fabulous in it of course!  For her innovative Salon Tour she has partnered with various community arts spaces to recreate the feeling and ambiance of the first salon she hosted at African Artists' Foundation in Lagos!  Somi is a beautiful songwriter and vocalist with a unique and engaging sound.  Her new album is absolutely amazing, we encourage you to get it here.  In addition to her musical talent, she is quite the fashionista and is always seen in gorgeous African inspired pieces from around the world.  We are so honored to be a small part of the Salon Tour's Chicago event at the Black Cinema House.  Check out how great she looked in some of these photos from the Chicago stop:

DC Living in Nubian Hueman Boutique! September 25 2014, 0 Comments

September has been an interesting month!  We started this venture approximately one year ago and there have been so many ups, some downs, and endless challenges.  September 2014 brought its own set of unique challenges, from one of our beloved seamstresses quitting to a large fabric order arriving late and in a damaged state!  (In the meantime, we had the fantastic honor of being featured on Essence.com's Street Style page!)  All of this was going on behind the scenes when we had an awesome order to fulfill with our brand new boutique client Nubian Hueman in Washington, DC!  Nevertheless, we pressed on, played "Better Days" by Bad Rabbits Band a few times, and with the start of Fall, owner and lead designer Onyii's birthday, and the OFFICIAL availability of Onyii & Co. at Nubian Hueman, September is proving to be fabulous!  We love doing what we do.  We love creating!  We love hearing how wearing your Onyii & Co. makes you feel!

So, all that to say we are so happy to report that The Sarai, The Jayde, and The Amara Crop and Skirt are available at the Nubian Hueman boutique!  They are celebrating their one year anniversary at Anacostia Arts Center this Saturday in Washington, DC and Onyii & Co. pieces will be featured!  If you are in the DMV area, please go support this wonderful event!


Pictured below are some of the items available at Nubian Hueman.  The Jayde Wrap Dress below is featured in a fabric only available at this boutique!

Kendra Porter: Woman to Watch April 01 2014, 1 Comment

Yesterday was the final day of Women's History Month and we announced that Kendra Porter was our Makers Hero to round out the awesome month of March. Kendra Porter is an Image Consultant and Stylist located in New York, and the founder of Honor You, the premier personal image agency for full-figured women. She encourages women of all sizes to honor themselves inside and out through garments that fit well and highlight their sophistication and class. She was trained by Stacy London of What Not to Wear and is currently the New York Market Manager and a Stylist for Style for Hire, which was co-founded by Stacy. Ms. Porter has been featured in countless magazines, events and fashion outlets including SHAPE, Black Enterprise and Body Heart. Most recently she was featured in a segment on the Dr. Oz Show in February 2014.
Along with Kendra, we believe that women of all sizes should look and feel fabulous in any setting on any day, which is why Onyii & Co. designs speak to real women everywhere! We at Onyii & Co. are so proud of Ms. Porter and encourage all of you to keep up with her, as she is definitely a woman to watch! We are truly honored to call her friend!  And of course, she looks WONDERFUL in her Onyii & Co. Zara Wrap & Go Skirt and her quote below shares her experience! Thank you Kendra!
“Onyii Brown of Onyii & Co. is an extremely gifted designer. Her creations are truly works of art. There are those that call themselves designers but struggle to fit the everyday woman. As a stylist and a plus size woman I am a fanatic about fit. Onyii listened and addressed my concerns delivering a beautifully crafted full length skirt for a red carpet event. Pictures alone neither convey the quality in her fabrics nor the craftsmanship she displays. It is a privilege to wear an Onyii & Co. masterpiece. You will be blessed by her designs.” –Ms. Kendra Porter, Nov. 4, 2013
