TEW sells designer metallic skeleton tote bags and custom pants that are made to order by your measurements. Talk about putting detail and love in every piece.

The final brand is a shoe brand that has already become a household name and has been featured in Footwear News, Vogue, Ebony and more. Keeyahri is a women’s luxury shoe brand founded by Keya Martin. With its signature spiral heel, Keeyahri prides themselves on being a shoe label that features curious shapes, architectural concepts, and pops of color. Their website also features a blog where Martin has articles geared towards giving inside tips to those who want to take a step into the fashion industry. With Keeyahri always being sold out, and now being featured at Nordstrom’s, it’s safe to say that this luxury shoe brand is one you don’t want to miss out on.
