A closer Look at all the Fashion Moments at the 2018 Sound City MVPs…

The 2018 Sound City MPVs happened yesterday night in Lagos and as expected, celebrities showed up and showed off.  And because awards shows are useless without their fashion moments, we are now going to talk about it, shall we?  JULIET IBRAHIM  The delectable Ghanian actress accompanied her rapper boyfriend to the MVPs dressed in a gorgeous Erica Moore gown.

Word of Advice to every upcoming Fashion Designer/Entrepreneur by Mazeli Mbanefo

Brand value and recognition takes years of hardwork, consistency, patience and exceeding customer’s expectations over and over again to achieve… That’s why I can’t seem to understand alot of  Oloriburukupreneurs I’ve met in Lagos; You have no brand name what so ever other than some half baked slogan of a name which anyone with half a brain could easily come up with, yet you want to sell me your product for an exorbitant amount of money, with an attitude to add.   Few months back,  someone tried to sell a tie&dye …

Can we just Talk about Beverly Naya’s incredible Fashion Sense for a Moment?!

She is fierce in all her ways, and perhaps especially so in her fashion choices. It’s difficult to ignore the delicate yet bold/chick style for which she’s known. Indeed, Beverly is one of those A-list Nollywood actresses who slay fashion both on the red carpet and while casually chilling. And now this has gotten so good to the point that we can no longer keep quiet. So we are going to talk about her incredible fashion sense for a second. And while we do that, hopefully you’d enjoy it while…

What’s up with The Lagos Fashion Week & Design 2017?

The Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2017 is currently ongoing, and so far we have seen some good designs, some interesting runway shows and some ugly models. Oh please! We all know these models aren’t always as pretty as angels. Little wonder the attention is often best focused on the clothes instead. And here’s to be frank- the clothes (as seen so far), are indeed fabulous; at least going by Nigerian standards. There has been displays by various designers, including Davido (who would have thought!), Moofa, P.O.C, Sunny Rose and…

Why Do Models Fall on the Runway?

Back in 2015 while walking a Givenchy runway during the New York Fashion Week, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Candice Swanepoel missed her steps and fell dramatically to the floor, injuring her pretty knees in the process. It made quite the headlines mostly for all the wrong reasons; “wrong” because it was funny and meme-worthy. But then on a more serious note, Candice’s fall  drew spotlight to some of the risks associated with the fashion industry. To the spectators, it may seem like an all-glamorous-affair. But just like every other profession, the cat-walking…

Why Is the Fashion Industry such an Elitist Circle?

Ever been interested in the fashion industry as much as I am? Perhaps the glitz and glamour of the Lagos Fashion Week fascinate you too! And of course there are the models, [mostly] skinny and beautiful; gracefully-composed/poised as they walk the runways. Such sophistication! Yet, we must all agree that mainstream fashion represent the perfect example of what everybody longs for but can hardly get to have. Why is that? Across the world, the fashion industry is such a closely-knit, exclusively-wealthy and obviously elitist circle. Those beautiful clothes and accessories…
