‘Big Brother’s Heaven wore our dress!'

HEAVENLY DRESS: Heaven Afrika in the specially designed dress entering the Big Brother house

TWO SISTERS from south London are behind a stunning dress worn by one of this year’s Big Brother contestants.

Heaven Afrika wore the specially designed dress as she entered the Big Brother house.

Dyhema Hill and Nerissa Phillips told The Voice they created the dress under their Valencia Hill label in May 2009.


“This dress was one of the favourites in the Valencia Hill collection” Hill said. “To see our designs being worn is very fulfilling, let alone on the Big Brother show.

Our designs have been worn by various celebs and super models before but how it was appreciated by Pamela Anderson and the show host and housemates was overwhelming for us. We got an immense amount of positive comments and feedback. This kind of publicity can only help to push our business even further. So thank you Big Brother.”

Hill and Phillips offer African and Caribbean themed clothing and jewellery; natural hair care; spa treatments and a gym at their company, Locstafari Beauty Village based in Catford, South London.

Heaven Afrika, 30, entered the Big Brother house on September 9. Hill said she and her sister met Heaven in 2009 when the model and holistic healer approached them and borrowed two outfits for her appearance in the 2009 Miss Nubian Beauty Pageant.
