ASQUI Ventures is a creative conglomerate spanning the Media, Entertainment, Fashion and Communication Industries whose focus is on branding and presentation. Branding is an incredibly important tool for creating and building your business. It is the science and art of making something that isn’t unique, unique. Branding is the promises you make and the promises you keep.
Established in 2005 by fashion designer, Dewry DuRoi Bradford, ASQUI Ventures was formed to meet a specific need. During this period, brands were experiencing similar issues. They needed to stay on-trend and consistent without breaking the bank. As former Head Designer/Design Director of various popular brands, such as Steve Madden Outerwear, Sean John Outerwear, Puma Outerwear, Popluxe, Phat Farm and Ecko International, Dewry honed in on his expertise to produce products within the Outerwear and Ready-to-wear Markets.
Now in looking forward to 2022, Dewry DuRoi plans his hard launch of his 2 brands: CorDuRoiand HealthJox in New York City.

DEWRY DUROI COLLABORATES WITH DIAMOND & JEWELRY ARTISAN MIKE NEKTA
In launching the CorDuRoi brand pre-New York Fashion Week, Dewry DuRoi Bradford produced his first photo-shoot with a collaboration between CorDuRoi and Diamond District, New York City’s own Mike Nekta who is known around the country for forging the most stunning diamond sets, rare stones and complicated pieces of jewelry. Mr. Nekta is a graduate of Gemological Institute where he developed his skills. He now specializes in customized engagement rings, eternity bands, exquisite chains and diamond crusted watches.
Created by New York City Fashion Designer, Dewry DuRoi Bradford, the CorDuRoi brand is known for incorporating images from the Versailles Palace in France, onto garments through a process called sublimation print where as a paper print, the color is applied through heat as the filaments are solidified to show brilliant, sharp colors and images. Although CorDuRoi was initially designed as primarily a menswear collection, after review of the garments, it organically morphed into a UNISEX BRAND by the launch of The Fashion Week Experience Fashion Show in Times Square, where Dewry DuRoi presented his freshman collection.
Dewry DuRoi has plans to possibly work out a collaborative collection where the CorDuRoi brand will be the focus of the actual jewelry. Stay tuned for more as the brand grows.
