“FASHION @ THE MANSION III”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, Fashion @ The Mansion III at 5:00pm on Sunday, March 26, 2017, at the historic Newton White Mansion, 2708 Enterprise Road, Mitchellville, MD 20721 will feature the fashion designs of Ola Raphael and other amazing designers from the DMV, Miami, Atlanta, and New York City.
Ola Raphael is the creator, owner and sole designer of Ola Raphael Designs. Ola is Nigerian born and resides in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. While growing up in his native land in the City of Lagos, Ola was inspired by the rich culture and couture that surrounded him. There he decided to set his sights on becoming a designer of men’s and women’s clothing and sharing his designs with the world. He uses the finest mix of fabrics with detailing and finishing that creates a different look for all occasions. While known for his unique men’s shirt designs, Ola has presented his line of men’s and women’s designs in Atlanta, Georgia and New York City and now he will bring his newest designs to the DMV at his own annual show, Fashion @ The Mansion.
