The African Magic Viewers Award took place on the 5th of March 2016 at Eko hotel and suites VI, Lagos Nigeria . To be honest this is the first time i watched the red carpet and I’m glad i did.
There was a lot of fashionable looks at the red carpet and the ladies brought there A game, as with fashion there were so many hits and misses on the red carpet but i choose to dwell on the hits which brings us to some looks that stood out for me.
Mercy Aigbe she went all out with her look and her makeup was stunning, I saw someone comment on instagram that the look was perfect except for the shawl like style in front but that is what i love about the look, it gives it that touch of elegance without it, it’s just another sweetheart dress.
Rita Dominic came to slay that’s for sure, the colour on her skin was gorgeous, what i love about the dress was when she walked on stage to present you can spot a peak of the thigh high slits at the back before the Cape covers it as the guru of fashion Tim Gunn said choose a point and stick to it which she did with low scoop neck.
Nse Ikpe Etim is one of my favourite Nigerian actress i watch almost ever movie she is in because of how talented an actress she is. I love the colour on her and the embellished top and skirt looks quite elegant, stylish and comfortable my kind of style.
Diana Opotipr is wearing a gown by iconicvanity, I can see the Ankara fusion in it, I have been following this lady for sometime now on instagram, she is a fashion consultant and is currently doing a series called 100 days of fashion on her instagram account where she wears African designers.
Eku Edewor our African Giuliana
Rancic, love the dark colour and off shoulder look both are trends i love as seen on my last post. Eku is a fashion risk taker as evident with her looks on 53 Extra.
Omoni Oboli wore April by kunbi black and white is a classic look it’s hard to go wrong with this look, the lace gives it a feminine edge that stops it from looking too bridesy.
What do you think of these various looks anyone you will rock..
One of the new trend everywhere is the cold and off shoulder look which I got really into last year when it began to appear on the runway and it’s now in full bloom.
To be honest i never really liked it mainly because i always thought how do you pull it off without a bra then i discovered strapless bras but i still wasn’t sold on it, we Africans mainly Nigerians are fully blessed upfront and trust me only a sturdy bra to pack those babies is the the only language i understand. Anyways it grew on me and i love the little cuts on some designs it gives it that edgy sexiness which is my favorite.
Here are a few looks i love and will definitely rock them given the chance.
What are your thoughts on this trend love it or hate it..
The new spring couture 2016 season just ended in Paris and the first designer to show case is Donatella Versace and she wasn’t one to disappoint her clientele.
There was the signature cutouts, thigh high slits, minis and much more. One of the most interesting details is the use of knots in various intricate details in the pieces which gives it that Versace edge the brand is well known for.
Personally the collection is not my kind of style but i can’t ignore the time and creativity that goes into making the collection and i also love the colours bravo..

Wow it’s been ages since last i posted on the blog, i have been so busy with school and still am it’s really time consuming but I’m glad i will be rounding up soon.
Anyways back to my post the ABUJA FASHION WEEK took place last Sunday and i happened to be one of the participating designers yayy!! From the start i knew i wanted to use our fabulous Ankara fabrics so for my moodboard which i named AFRO CHIC i decided to use dark colors with deep shades plus i have been obsessing over the 70s especially the wide leg trend the freedom that comes with it.. Heaven.
Prints, 70s vibe, Colours, Modern Chic with a hint of fluidity that’s what my board represents.
Ps. AFRO CHIC POST COMING SOON..
I really love fashion you should hear me talk about it i get so excited, my eyes lit up and i can go on for hours discussing the structure, cut, fluidity, intricate beading or embroidery of a particular garment it gives me such a rush.
I remember when i was in secondary school how i always use to sketch at the back of my notes that even upto today my friends still remind me of those days. I have the passion what i need now is more knowledge and experience which is something I’m planning for in the near future but for now i learn slowly before it comes.
Early this year i got to design a few pieces and this happened to be one of them, this is when i am my most happiest creating a whole look i got a friend of mine beadsbykuby to make some jewellery that compliments the dress because it had silver threads woven into the fabric i thought that shade of beads was spot on. I knew i wanted minimal makeup which my friend mdazzle was able to achieve and the lovely Mimi brought my creation to life.
This was one of my happiest moments this year because i never thought i will be in this position of making my dreams come true gradually it makes me so hopeful for the future.
Actually this was what i wore on sunday when i went to see my friend Aisha, the weather was fabulous and cool that day so i opted for a Polka-dot empire maxi dress that i designed, i usually don’t like any shade of green but i love this emerald colour it has a certain maturity about it that i like. I decided to give it a pop of colour with this really really light bolero. I had a really comfy outing if i might say.
I know fashion week is over but i wrote this post during that period i never got to post it till now.
My first Paris Fashion week post, I don’t know if anyone was as wowed by the new collection as i was. What i couldn’t get over was the details that went into it. Oliver Rousteign is a genius he is one of the few young designers i admire, the work that went into these pieces was no joke, bravo if i might say!!
I am more of a simple structured pieces kind of girl but i salute the time and craftsmanship the makers took to create them makes you appreciate fashion all over again. I noticed some of the pieces reflects kim kardashain style I can see her rocking some of the pieces

Oh Dolce & Gabbana!!! You know the way to my heart, this is one of my favourite Italian brand. I can’t quantify how much i love this brand. I am a huge floral print kind of gal and they always deliver.
There is something about the brand with it’s deep rooted love of Italy, it represents it’s culture and family so well that it makes one of dreaming to visit Italy just to experience what they are talking about.
This collection is an evolution of there last one. There was prints, flowers, roses, flowy gowns, crop tops and skirts with Italy embroidery and art work all over them. Hair accessories and fresh make up to give it that youthful exuberant. This is a brand that knows what it’s all about.
