Shoesday Tuesday: March NYC By Jessie Ajluni

I first learned of luxury unisex shoe wear label March NYC while darting from show to show during New York Fashion Week. As snow piled high along the streets, looking effortless and street-style-cool was well- a real effort. I happened to look down and see the most gorgeous calf hair black and white speckled boots on Tamu’s feet. Without thinking, I blurted, “Who made these boots and where can I get them?”

It was less than a week later that I found myself sitting down with menswear design Guru Simon Spurr at a quaint coffee shop in the west village talking all things March NYC.

Have you ever been scrolling through your Instagram feed or browsing your favourite website and come across the work of an emerging African designer and immediately do a search for where you can buy that sick AF dress or those you're-killing-me-they-are-so-good trousers featured on said feed or site? Does your disappointment feel like someone has bore a hole in your fashion heart when you decipher that there are no stockists within feasible shipping range for you to bring those life-giving clothes home? I can't tell you how many times I've experienced this sort of heartbreak when I was unable to shop my favourite African designers. I mean, it gets so bad that I've even contemplated boarding a flight for a continent-specific shopping trip. Hey, no judgment, I love clothes. But it looks like my frustration and desperation is now a thing of the past.
