Documenting the style-scape of Lagos, Nigeria

GRACE ALEX.

There's an interesting new crop of young women who I observe on social media for their multi dimensional approach to living, working and thriving.

Take Grace.

She's a beautiful personal style blogger, she imparts knowledge at a University, she's a shoe label owner, a contributing clothes designer and she just represents her own brand of real realness.

Her Instagram posts consistently prove that beyond her effortless beauty and style, lies a young woman who's fearless in her opinions and will quite boldly call out the bull duty in Nigeria's bourgeois fashion industry, at the times the duty does stink.

Whether she's discussing style or trends, or her cute obsession for Korean drama, or more sombre issues like depression (hang in there darling!), there is naked truth in her portrayals.
A refreshing shift from the norm of "fashion bloggers".

What a time to be alive, a time when women have not just the ability, but the freedom to do more and be more.

Grace and a few other young ladies of her ilk impress me to no end and I consistently find myself smiling when I can share the snippets of their lives they allow the general public into.

Here's Grace at different days of the 2016 Lagos Fashion & Design Week.

Cheers.
