New York Couture Fashion Week was also an occasion to introduce the stunningly beautiful Nehita Scarf Collection. Since the launch of Nehita Inc., Ms. Okojie’s popularity as a designer has attracted those devotees of fashion from all over the world.

Monalisa’s creations reflect a new way of showing off one’s own identity that can transcend any occasion and any time of day. “Women today have busy careers and often go from a business meeting to a cocktail or dinner setting. A scarf and a good piece of jewelry worn appropriately can quickly give them a distinguished and polished look within minutes,” comments Monalisa. Jewelry and scarves will always play a pivotal role in a woman’s wardrobe and have most recently been included in fine menswear, as evidenced by the popularity and pre-sale of Nehita’s men’s line of scarves. While the French have shown the world over a hundred ways to wear the scarf, women from the African Continent bodies. Nehita’s elegant silk scarves are a sophisticated balance of a canvas of color and artistic design.  Created and designed with precise detail, they represent a new generation of fashionistas as well as for those who build their wardrobe around accessoriesMonalisa’s designs say “I am bold, I am confident, I am unafraid to explode in colour”. Every season there is a new revolution of fashion, it is no longer dictated by Paris, New York and Rome. Fashion today is a global statement, it is the pairing of jewels with jeans, a jeweled anklet, a scarf tied on a handbag, a colorful scarf draped around ones neck. How can anyone forget Jackie Onassis leaving her apartment wearing an Hermes, or Marilyn Monroe hanging out of a window draped in a scarf, or the Dutchess of Windor walking down the gangway wearing a scarf patterned after Prince Edward’s Tartan and most recently, Beyonce walking her baby on the beach. As fashion continuously evolves, the varieties and accessories have also changed. Those who love fashion become the trendsetters, not by what they wear, but how the style is interpreted on them.  Monalisa draws from the concept of two continents; that is, scarves and jewelry will always be the mainstay of fashion.  Nehita Jewelry has been featured in international magazines and can be seen worn by celebrities on the occasion of Hollywood’s biggest events, including the Emmy’s, the Grammys, the Oscars, the Image Awards, the SAG Awards and others. Her celebrity roster includes Jennifer Love Hewitt, Meagan Good, Nick Cannon, actress Halle Berry, Natalie Cole, Brandy, Sally Richardson, CCH Pounder, and the late Whitney Houston.
