Chichi Ibekwe

House of Yere/Yere Designs was founded by model, entrepreneur and former international professional basketball player, Chinyere Ibekwe. House of Yere is a Fashion Production Company which produces fashion events, design workshops and a unique multicultural clothing line called Yere Designs.

The Yere Designs Fashion show is an annual celebration, showcase and fundraising event designed to inspire and touch the hearts of our global community. This year Yere Designs has selected "Stand Tall", "Save the Children" and "Step Up Women's Network" as our key charties. The goal of the fashion show is to provide various designers, stylists, and artists with a creative avenue to highlight their talents. Also, raise awarness to the possiblities of the future where gender inequality is a thing of the past. The first annual Yere Designs Fashion Show was hosted in July 2013 and by far exceeded expectations in both attendance and impact. The show is now one of the most highly anticipated events of the summer.

During Chinyere's extensive travels, Chinyere observed the global cultural minimization and outright exclusion of many women and their roles throughout the international community. As the CEO and Executive Director of House of Yere, Chinyere focuses on embodying and delivering a message of empowerment, determination and hope to at-risk youth, especially young girls. A living example of what is possible, Chinyere encourages the younger generation to create their own personal environment of "endless matter what the rest of the world may show or tell you." Chinyere's passion resulted in her creating the Stand Tall Foundation to provide fashion and fitness services to young women between the ages of 7 and 17. 

In recent news, Chinyere spoke at the West Coast rally in support of the Bring Back Our Girls movement and has received a special invitation to attend the US Africa Summit in Washington, D.C. this August. Chinyere and House of Yere will produce a special East Coast edition of the Yere Designs Fashion Show, preceding the Los Angeles event. In addition, Chinyere has been selected as "The Face of the New Africa" by Life and Times Magazine. 

We are very excited to leverage the success of the inaugural event into another annual installment of the Yere Designs Fashion Show. We invite you to come along for the ride!
