  • (1888PressRelease) August 23, 2011 - The newly launched ground-breaking accessory line, founded in September 2010, always goes against the grain and creates thought provoking creations, challenging both, the enthused and weary to reconsider the "norm". Headquartered in fashion savvy Toronto, Canada, designer Naanafya's ultra exclusive and limited-edition designs have gained much deserved attention and has be worn by superstars like Keshia Chante, Tasha of the Candy Coated Killahz at the 2011 MMVAs, Saidah Baba Talibah, Lauren Elle, new upcoming Canadian sensation Kayla in her video "Step On It" feat.

    Lil' Jon, Divine Brownand Cascada. Stars aren't the only ones with their eyebrows perched and mouths caught open, as Gardé Del Avante (GDA) has been also featured in Dress To Kill Magazine, BELLO, Schon, Plaid and Chew Magazine. A recent collaboration with fashion designer Rachel Sin at Toronto's Alternative Arts and Fashion Week, more than showcased Naanafyas' talented skill set, a culture of harmonic synchronization between the conformists of fashions society and the targeted "hey, look at me individualist", gelled together for one night.

    With a mission statement, "to empower those who strive to be individuals without inhibition" GDA provides "alternative" fashion, to all those who ultimately "dare to be different, and dare to be [themselves]" through their avant-garde design aesthetic. This theme of self emancipation is highly sought out through their Sauvage Signature Collection; which is available for purchase online at, as well as their Indigéne Haute Couture Collection, which is on schedule to show at runway at Boston Fashion Week.

    GDA's jewellery collection has begun to pave the way for its expected and upcoming success. Their signature style of daringness and playfulness often features authentic pieces that include feathers and crystals, with the incorporation of skulls, and interlocking chains.

    Lift off has taken place, and Boston Fashion Week is the final destination where non believers will undoubtedly become believers...
