ARTWORK by JoJo | Strike a Pose Collection

When FASHION meets ART... fabulous things can happen...

As seen in my latest collection entitled "Strike a Pose".

This collection was created exclusively for a Showroom Grand Opening for an uber-talented fashion designer and friend, Esé Azénabor. She is Nigerian/British/Canadian turned Texan, a Fashion Designer, and a total Boss Babe! She is smart, beautiful, talented, and a hard-working woman. Her laughter exudes joy and peace. Her clothing is detailed, feminine, stunning, and show-stoppers. She dresses Hollywood celebrities right down to people like me! 

This is one amazing individual... so, of course, I was beyond thrilled when she asked me to be one of the featured artists at the Grand Opening of her Showroom in the Dallas Design District.

We collaborated on the color palette and glam-vibe for the pieces, deciding to go with neutral tones and just a hint of emerald green in a few pieces. There are a total of 5 paintings in the collection. All showcasing a heavy layered texture of mixed metals (silver and gold) reflecting the hand-beaded details on her gowns.

The collection title was inspired by Madonna's "Strike a Pose" song with part of the lyrics making their way into the individual painting titles. I always feel like a movie star in Esé's pieces... you'll find me stiking a pose a few times over!

I am so thrilled for Esé .... even greater things are in store!
Her showroom is available as an event venue location. And it's a pretty grand venue at that...

When FASHION meets ART... fabulous things can happen!
