Ceasar Couture
Caesar Couture-afwl2016

Caesar Couture is known for its exquisite tailoring services and refined design silhouettes of tuxedos, patterned suits, single breasted and double-breasted suits as well as traditional clothing. It was established in the year 2000 by owner and designer, Esosa Ogedegbe. The label currently makes clothing for men, but has plans to diversify into female clothing in the near future.

The collections are perfect for the sophisticated gentleman that wants a classic look for black-tie events, weddings and business meetings. The suits are timeless, yet incorporate some bold colours like shades of red, yellow, orange and green and can even be dressed down (when worn as a jacket) to a more casual look with sneakers and/or jeans.

Même Bête

Même Bête is a St. Lucian design company by Taribba do Nascimento who began designing bags 5 years ago while working in Ethiopia.

The company specializes in leather handbags. Its signature look is African Print mixed with leather, however many other materials are used to create unique designs such as burlap, madras and Indian saris.


A lover of life and an avid traveller, do Nascimento marries eclectic style with her ethnocentric eye to create unique pieces. The concept behind her bags is to make simple styles that are offset by vibrant colour. Her bags infuse style and fashion into practicality, introducing every woman to the vibrant chic life.
