JIBRI High Fashion Plus Line – Jasmine Elder of JIBRI Debuts Her Fall 09′ Collection at The Art of Fashion Event in New York

Brooklyn, NY (July 2, 2009) — The highly anticipated release of the JIBRI Fall 09′ collection is finally here. Designer, Jasmine Elder, will be debuting her Fall 09′ collection at The Art of Fashion event that will take place on August 1, 2009 at the Dumbo Lofts in Brooklyn, New York. This event will be hosted by Li’st, an enclave for the upwardly mobile and socially conscious; promoting change through artistic commonality.

The JIBRI collection will be showcased along with two other up and coming designers and a portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated to the High 5 Organization, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to making the arts affordable for teens.

A native of Atlanta, Jasmine Elder started creating garments at a very young age. She has lived in both New York and London as a design student. She decided to start the JIBRI line in 2006 and has never looked back. The JIBRI line is dedicated to creating garments for the fashion-conscious curvy woman and is inspired by vintage cinema, music, art, powerful female figures and underground culture.

With a keen eye on construction and unique fabrics, Jasmine always thinks about the woman who will wear her garments first, then creates well structured pieces that will flatter that woman’s body and express her design inspiration. Rio of Li’st says, “Jasmine Elder has her fingers on the pulse of style and is currently breathing new life into the art of fashion.”

The JIBRI Fall 09′ collection will be a visual pleasure. Jasmine worked with diffused metallic colors along with graphic prints. The fabrics are functional, but luxurious and the silhouettes are sensuous, but structured.

Think Grace Jones meets Grace Kelly. As always, the line will include updated closet staples and one of a kind pieces. “I anticipate this will be the best collection JIBRI has put out yet.”, says Chastity Garner of Garner Style.

The Art of Fashion is an evening event that will showcase up and coming fashion designers. It will include a pre-show cocktail reception, showings of three designer collections and an after party with the designers, models and a celebrity DJ.

“The Li’st spirit embodies a collaboration of artists with a variety of different perspectives. I really wanted to show how the art of high fashion plus size design would add to that diversity.” says Jasmine Elder on why she wanted to participate in this event.

  2. Hello The Curvy Fashionista..I love reading your blog and I was wondering how you could help me. I'm a very fashion conscious person…thanks to your blog and similar others…But in my town I don't have access to better private label designers. I was hoping you could give me a top ten list or more of your favorite online boutiques that have price points between $250.00 and $1,000.00 per item. I LOVE fashion accessories too. Please feel free helping me get very fashion creative.

    All other commenters, please feel free to contribute your favorite top 10 list as well.
