Phe-Zula's clients included: Angela Bassett, Vanessa Williams, Queen Latifah and En Vogue.

The Therez Fleetwood Bridal Collection was chosen for the American Express national commercial entitled 'Portraits'; and shortly thereafter, Ms. Fleetwood appeared on the Today Show. Among her many accolades, Ms. Fleetwood was named the "New Day Designer of the Year", was selected as one of the New York Museum's Top Designers for their "New York Gets Married' exhibit, and has received the Allstate Insurance Company's "From Whence We Came: African-American Women of Triumph" award.
