Creative Director, CFDA Award recipient, global style maven, Aurora James
has catapulted into the spotlight with her accessories company
Brother Vellies. Beginning with a take on the traditional Namibian desert boot, James has
created and sustained jobs for local artisans in Kenya, Morocco, South Africa and Ethiopia
by creating a line extension of sandals & boots worthy of the golden nod of approval from Wintor.
Paired with a laid back "oh I just threw this on in 10 mins before heading out the door" vibe
it is clear to see why James' collection has garnered a cult-like following from other
style ingenues like Solange Knowles and sisters of William Okpo Darlene & Lizzy,
who have already completed a collaboration with Brother Vellies.

Until next time friends,
