Lagos-based fashion label House of Jola by designer Joan Isisoma Okorodudu will present its latest vibrant collection at Couture Fashion Week, 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at the world-famous Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on New York's legendary Park Avenue. Part of a collective of outstanding Nigerian designers, the show promises to be a festive and memorable event.

Fashion designer, entrepreneur and former championship athlete Joan Isisoma Okorodudu was born into a noble family in the Aniocha North region of Delta State, Nigeria. She graduated from Boston University in the United States where she set various records in track and field and was named MVP in 1980. Her athletic accomplishments include being part of the record-breaking 4 by 400 meter Nigerian women's relay team at the 1980 pre-Olympics in Stuttgart, Germany.

Ms. Okorodudu went on to pursue her fashion career, opening her own boutique in Wilmington, Delaware. Since relocating back to Nigeria, her prestigious label, House of Jola, has participated in numerous fashion events including South Africa Fashion Week, Nigeria Fashion Week and Washington D.C. Fashion Week.

"We are delighted to be collaborating with Ms. Okorodudu who has worked tirelessly to bring a delegation of top Nigerian designers, models, press and celebrities to Couture Fashion Week this season," says event producer Andres Aquino.
