Mezam Apparel makes unbelievably cool leggings, bags, and athleisure wear with African prints. The leggings are made in California and manufactured at a female-owned factory. The small batch production and high quality athletic material really caught our eye. Mezam Apparel’s styles are designed with your style and movement in mind. In addition to celebrating African fashion and art these leggings are both fashionable and high-performance. Go ahead! Dance, stretch and run with Mezam, from the yoga studio to your favorite brunch spot.

Ann Marie will bring her fabulous creations on December 15 and 16.  Along with her selection of necklaces, bracelets, brooches, she’s also decided to feature some one of a kind pieces for men.  (You asked, we answered)

Along with her will be Don Rozwi , an artist she discovered at Trade Secret’s event and suggested he would be a great addition. His leather pouches and bags make a truly great gift.
