Artist / Illustrator / Fashion Designer / Card Couturier / Entrepreneur.
Brooklyn, New York native, Willie Mitchell, a truly multi-talented individual began his love for art and fashion at an early age. Willie began sketching at age four, taught by his older brother, he spent countless hours drawing shapes and figures. ” When I became a teenager, I was inspired by the fashion styles of Josephine Baker, Diana Ross, Grace Jones, Jody Watley & Madonna. I remember how I always loved their look because each of these ladies style seemed original, bold, unique & timeless.” Mitchell’s design aspirations were also influenced by famous fashion designers like (Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Sonia Rykiel, Coco Chanel, Giorgio Armani and the famous illustrator Erté.)
He attended the prestigious Parsons School of Design for two years. Shortly after he started
assisting top design houses such as (Piero Dimitri, Lawrence Stephens, and Fila.) His credits also
include working for (Victoria’s Secret, Liz Claiborne & Francois Hendy.) “The experience of working
for these wonderful company’s helped me immensely and strengthen my ambition of starting my own
business and giving back. “In 1993, Willie’s hard work ethic started paying off when Essence
Magazine featured a ‘Willie Mitchell’ original design for their spring bride’s issue. That same year,
his illustrations were featured alongside top designers in Harriett Cole’s wedding planner, ‘Jumping
The Broom’ also HX Magazine June 2007 issue.’ In addition, several of his fashion illustrations have
been featured on daytime’s award winning soap opera (‘As The World Turns.’)
In recent years, Mitchell’s work has been shown in many galleries, boutiques, arts & crafts shows in
New York and other parts of the United States. His work is currently being sold in places like
(Etcetera Gifts & Harlem Flo Flora Atelier) showing whimsical
fashion forward greeting cards and paintings in 3-D format. Willie continues to collaborate with other Visual
Artists & Designers on various projects in addition to participating in and producing Art Exhibitions,
Fashion & Trade shows. Check back for upcoming events, projects and locations.

About Mayor Bill de Blasio 
As New York City’s 109th mayor, Bill de Blasio is committed to fighting the income inequality that has created a ‘Tale of Two Cities’ across the five boroughs. Mayor de Blasio believes all New Yorkers deserve a chance to succeed in the greatest city on earth. That means every child gets a quality education, every community is safe, and every New Yorker has an affordable place to call home.
The 109th Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, came into office in 2014 determined to ensure that this city remains a place for everyone.
Since assuming office in 2014, the de Blasio administration has developed and executed transformative initiatives including Pre-K for All; Paid Sick Leave; neighborhood policing; IDNYC; and Housing New York, the largest, most ambitious affordable housing plan in the nation.
As the Mayor’s second term begins, crime is at historic lows and police and communities are coming together. Student test scores are up citywide and the graduation rate has never been higher. A five-borough economy has emerged, with a record number of jobs. New York is building or preserving affordable apartments at a pace not seen in decades and the city is ahead of its commitment to cut greenhouse emissions 80 percent by 2050.
But there is much more to do and Mayor de Blasio has pledged to work tirelessly to make this the fairest big city in America. This includes deepening neighborhood policing and further reducing crime; adding 3-K to our school system; increasing the original affordable housing goals by 100,000 apartments; and creating 100,000 good-paying jobs.
Mayor de Blasio will also continue to be an outspoken progressive voice on issues that touch the lives of his fellow New Yorkers, including: income inequality, early childhood education, immigration reform, infrastructure, and voting rights. These issues of basic fairness for every New Yorker have animated Mayor de Blasio’s life and career across three decades of activism and public service.
Bill de Blasio was born on May 8, 1961 in Manhattan and raised in Cambridge, MA. He is a graduate of New York University and Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. He began his career in public service in 1989 as part of David N. Dinkins’ successful and historic mayoral campaign and worked in the Dinkins Administration.
Over the next decade, Mr. de Blasio served as regional director at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; as a school board member for Brooklyn School District 15; and as head of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s historic campaign in 2000 for the U.S. Senate.
In 2002, Mr. de Blasio joined the New York City Council, representing Brooklyn’s 39th district. During his two terms, Mr. de Blasio fought to improve public education, expand affordable housing, protect tenants’ rights, and reform social services for families and children. Elected Public Advocate in 2009, he pursued fairness for tenants, taxpayers, and students.
Mr. de Blasio has been happily married to Chirlane McCray, the First Lady of New York City, since 1994. They are the proud parents of Chiara and Dante.

The history of the country goes back to 500 BC when the Nok people were the inhabitants. It was the ending of the 15th century European explorers and traders began their lucrative slave trade with the Yoruba and Benin peoples. In 1861 Lagos was colonized by the British and 1914, the entire country became The Colony and Protectorate of Nigeria. Nigeria became independent in 1960.

  • LAND – 910,768 SQ. KM
  • WATER – 13,000 SQ. KM

Land Boundaries: 4,047KM

Geography Land area – approximately 923,768 square kilometers, which spans over six ecological zones, ranging from the swampy coastal rain forest of the south to the semi-arid fertile grassland of the north. The country’s land area is made up of high grounds of average heights of 1,500 metres over the eastern region, 600 metres over the northern region and 300 metres over the western region. Over the coast and southern regions are the low-lying grounds which are generally below 300 metres and are characterized by creeks and lagoons on both sides of the niger delta. The main drainage systems in nigeria are (a) the niger-benue, (b) the chad and (c) the coastal river systems


Reflecting the varied topography and climate typical of the tropics, nigeria is blessed with very rich and diverse plant and animal life. There are four broad vegetation belts: the mangrove swamp on the coast, the rain forest, the woodland savannah in the middle belt and the guinea and sudan savannah in the north.


Varies: equatorial/tropical, when traversing from the coast to the hinterland. Semi-arid, from the hinterland to the fringes of the Sahara desert. The climate is tropical with two main marked seasons – the dry season lasting from November to march with the dry dust-laden north-easterly winds blowing across the country. The rainy season is from April to October, during which the moisture-laden south-westerly winds blow from the coast, bringing the rains. Rainfall decreases from about 1,500mm in the south to about 500mm in the north. The temperature is generally high, except in the Jos plateau, the Mambila plateau and Obudu ranch plateau where the temperature is relatively cooler all year round.


Ranging between 20c and 40c. Temperature increases as one moves from the southern part to the northern part
