    Kia Vonvega and Clear Boutique


    Founded in 2006 by celebrity fashion designer Kia Vonvega, Clear Boutique’s new collection of gorgeous dresses and sultry 2 pieces were an instant hit with women looking to make a bold sexy statement with flattering fits. Soon, celebrity women were hitting the clubs in Clear Boutique wear and Ms Vonvega had the pleasure of dressing Angela Yee, Kaylin Garcia and Kimbella Patterns for their shoots and shows.


    “I love the power of clothing and the transformative quality of dressing up. I love that women can wear my outfits and be confident, classy, glamorous and sexy at the same time. My garments transition from gorgeous day wear into beautiful night wear with a pair of high heels and some attitude,” says Ms Vonvega with a wink.


    Ms Vonvega searched for unique fabrics, added embellishments and experimented with sexy cuts. The clientele love the body-flattering design of these dresses, the mesh hollow out is avant-garde and very sensuous.
    “No one helped me – I did everything by myself. It was difficult in the beginning, but I love my designing so much, it was worth it. It is a labor of love.”
    Ms Vonvega’s passion for couture kicked in at an early age. Her grandfather was the first black male to turn into production a pair of jeans in the island country of Trinidad. Picking from his innovations, Ms Vonvega shaped her knowledge of sewing and fashion with femininity and sensuality, boudoir-inspired lines, vibrant colors, grabbing the attention of the fashion, media and celebrity worlds.


    At Ms Vonvega’s “Clear Boutique” NY Fashion Show in September, you were able to purchase direct from the runway at the event, a novel concept. Models strutted down the runway with Clear Boutique’s fantastic outfits to a packed house of media, TV crews, buyers and trendsetters.
