THE NON-CONFORMISTS

As part of my recap of last year's Lagos Fashion & Design Week, let's hear it for the ones who refuse to fit in the box of set trends.

I look forward to seeing more of your self expression at this year's edition.

IT'S COMING.

I've watched with lazy interest, all the photos coming out of the 4 major Fashion Weeks i.e. New York, London, Milan and Paris.

Street style representation has certainly been interesting; but we are about to show the world our own version of individual style.

Lagos Fashion & Design Week is in a month and I will be there, covering street style as I do.

What can I assure you of? It's unlikely you'll find two people looking in any way similar. The diversity will impress you.

Just you wait...

IT'S A WRAP.

I took his photo at the 2015 LFDW here.

His essence remains same.

The detail in the jewellery and the touch of the head wrap.

True style.

KEMI SMALLZ

On Air Personality.

More personality than air...and little lady's got effortless style.

KAYLAH ONIWO.

I truly enjoy observing the journey of true hard workers.

Kaylah is (at the risk of sounding cliché), fierce and feminine, and is transparently dedicated to all the ways she creates value for herself and for the fashion/entertainment industry.

She was the host at today's Maju X Lux event and my goodness what a darned fine job she did! I've witnessed her hosting at 2 prior events and it's safe to conclude that when it comes to keeping the buzz alive, she's art.

I'm mighty pleased to know her.

And photo overload of her because...BOD!







MAJU x LUX.

Today was severely emotional for some of us. Some of us had to drop of our first born sons at boarding school.

The democratic nature of motherly love is amazing, that true freedom to choose to love without borders, same choice everyday, no questions asked.

Let us move away from namby pamby talk; let us move on to style.

Today was the much talked about MAJU shopping party, in collaboration with LUX soap. It held at Tickle Bay in Lekki and had stylish attendees in droves. The energy was vibrant and the pieces were fun, relatable and there was something for every woman. It is after all Maju, I did not expect less.

The style about was adaptive and without any strict influences.

I appreciated the diversity.

More coming up shortly.

Cheers.

DANDY.

I suspect it'll be unabashed fun to go shopping with him.






O'BOY.

Yesterday (28h August '17), I attended the launch of another new label.

It's the brain child and creative work of Opara Boy who I've featured several times on here.

I liked the choice of location (the Work Station in Victoria Island) and I appreciate how his contemporary translation of adire (which is one of the textiles I can actually say is Nigerian).

There were blazers, bomber jackets, tunics, shirts, trousers and shoes. All with superb finishing.

We ordered some pieces.

You'll be hearing more about his line soon enough, but first, style.

Cheers.
