The stunning footwear for the collection is from Kruzin, and beautiful Jewelry is by Burkinabe. It was a treat to watch adorable pups strutting the runway in their Maxine avenue NYC PUP collection outfits by Funari.

This Egyptian goddess collection was directly influenced from days of glam rock of David Bowie & Queen, & even inspired by  Lady Gaga! The message of the line was Peace Love unite to the world! The hieroglyphic foiled fabric said Peace Love & Funari in ancient writings.

The fabrics used had a  galactic swirl representing the chaos in the world.  One of the highlights is the use of fabric with the eye of Horus, an icon used in the middle east for protection.
