Penning my final post for 2017 and can’t be any more happier that it’s all about my culture. Some months back after we shot the androgyny editorial in February that was shared by so many platforms, I came across these photos by the ever talented @thestyleinfidel while perusing various sites and got him to share some the original shots. He did so after much reminders a month later and I just sat in them…lol, well till now.
Igbo is a Nigerian tribe one which I am a part of.

Isn’t that just a amazing idea?
There are some other few Igbo inspired pieces by Nigerian designers this year. Enjoy..
I’m quite done now. I hope these beauties add some inspiration to your 2018. As mentioned, look out for my one and only resolution in my Vogue 73 Questions Parody video.
