The event was held at Idia Models & Talents Modeling School located in South Tampa.

Shola Yusuf is a Nigerian born entrepreneur and pharmacist by trade whose passion for shoes has driven her to create the SHOLA Designs brand. Her motto is “Fashion is an Art”.

Her shoes are trendy, modern and you can see the African influence in them. They are colorful and super comfortable. Shola was introducing her first collection, her Spring/Summer 2014 at the event and she is also looking to add handbags and clutches to the brand in the near future. She hopes to take the brand globally and make it a household name.

CNN Latino Tampa was at the event covering it for a future fashion segment as well other fashion bloggers and media.

Estrella Fashion Report’s owner fashion blogger Farrah Estrella said about the event: “I am happy to host an event for such a great woman as Shola, I admire her personally and I love her brand. I also love working with new designers with new perspectives and great ideas”.

She also added: “It was a pleasure to work with her at this event and introduce her to the fashion community in the Tampa Bay area. She is one to watch for sure. You will see her shoes in boutiques and big department stores soon. That is my wish for her anyways, I wish her much success”.
