Designer Highlights from this week's eMerge Fashion Trade Show in Miami!!

After strolling through Miami's eMerge Fashion Trade Show on Tuesday, April 27th, I have decided to shed a light on my favorite designers. The event showcased the works of upcoming fashion mavens who have made their brands a household name but now seek to introduce their collections to Miami! First on my list: Jbon Clothing, based out of Cocoa, Florida. What impressed me? Their super fly hoodie (pictured above) and their colorful prints. Most recently, the brand has been expanding and gaining the support of music artists like Snoop, Ludacris and Rick Ross who all wear Jbon's apparel. To see their collection online and perhaps indulge yourself with one of their custom designs, visit
The next designer on my Top 3 List: NV Euro, based out of New Orleans, Louisiana. The picture above was recently taken in New Orleans and it features the founder of this brand, Anthony Darouiche. At eMerge, the designer debuted his new summer line called ''Gone For Now.'' Anthony's urban flare and style has captured the attention of Lil' Wayne who wore NV Euro's ''Welcome to Heartbreak'' crewneck shirt on MTV News. To view NV Euro's collection or to read their blog, visit

My final designer: Miss Magou, based out of London. This talented designer has traveled the world with her impressive garments. Last year, Hanan showcased her collection during her very own fashion show in Dubai! Miss Magou's style: eclectic, elegant and beautifully hand crafted. For more information on Hanan's work, visit her Facebook fan page or email Hope you enjoy exploring these up and coming designers!
