La Jaula: The Runway

La Jaula, meaning “the Birdcage” in Spanish, is all about eccentric summer style. So it would only make sense that those same vibes would transfer to the runway. For the second time around Strut took a moment to showcase some of Houston’s best.

Designers Tereza Suessman and Onyii & Co. show off their warm weather looks, along with ten featured Houston influencers boasting their best summer styles! Lets take a look at what the summer heat brought out.

Onyii & Co.

Behind the many layers of culture, imagination, and contemporary wear for women that distinguish Onyii & Co. from other luxury designer brands is Nigerian-native and founder, Onyii (“Own-Yee”) Brown.

Since her launch of Onyii & Co., in 2013, Brown has incorporated Africa-inspired printed figure-flattering wrap dresses and skirts into each of her collections, because she believes that although a woman’s body may change, her desire to feel feminine and beautiful never wanes. The global textiles used to create these garments allow women to indulge in an indigenous and authentic sense of luxury that endues them with the confidence they need to strive for, seek and become more.

Onyii & Co is a luxury lifestyle brand that caters to the world traveled woman, known for vivid color, print and bohemian styled silhouettes.  This exclusive collection utilizes the finest quality global textiles, with a focus on luxury, comfort and creative expression…….”The gift of travel in every garment . ”
