One Year Anniversary Special




Hi guys,


Metrogypsie is one today !!!!!! I’m supposed to publish posts on Tuesdays henceforth but seeing

Lets get right into our features..

Goke Omoluyi



He is totally on that metrogypsie ish with this smart and chilled out look he’s got going.

– Favourite Fashion Item?: My favourite fashion item at the moment are a pair of Zara tasselled loafers. They dress up any outfit I have on and add a dapper touch to everything.

– Your take on work fashion?: Fashion at work is inspiring. Its refreshing to see that people actually pay attention to how they look while at work and it classes up the place. 
That being said, don’t over do it. Its a work place not a fashion show.



Diana Edeh



– Favourite Fashion Item?: I’ve got two of them.. Shoes and Lipstick. 🙂

– Your take on work fashion?: Fashion while  at work is comfort and expressive.



JS Stylefigure



– Favourite Fashion Item?: The Bowtie which is the highest accessory in men’s fashion! So its my website’s logo.

– Your take on work fashion?: Ah ok! For me, this fashion thing is an art.. It’s a way of people showing who they are, inspiring people without actually telling them. Its another way of self expression.




Onyeka Udechukwu



– Favourite Fashion Item?: The Little Black Dress. Always a standby. dressy or smart casual. Also perfect for the office or after work hours. HELLO METROGYPSIE.

– Your take on work fashion?: I cannot imagine life without style. The confidence and personality it brings out in you and in front of your clients. It sells for sure.




Segun Ayandele



– Favourite Fashion Item?: For men, I always wear a nice bracelet and watch, and no, not the chain bracelets.
For ladies, earrings and the necklace and bracelet as well. Not a fan of waistbands or anklets.

– Your take on work fashion?: For me yea, fashion means it all. Its one of the many ways I can show my individual uniqueness. My dressing shows my expression to the world. At work, we dress to suite our jobs and lifestyle. A farmer wouldn’t wear a 3-piece suit to the farm right? At the end of the day, fashion is whatever makes you feel good about you, but hey, have some decency too. Lol
So yea, I agree with fashion at work so long as its appropriate.




Sally Iriri-Adegoke



– Favourite Fashion Item?: My favourite fashion item is my pair of Jimmy Choo pointy toed shoes, they are a super comfortable classic and are always in my car for whenever I have to switch from casual to chic in the course of my day.

– Your take on work fashion?: Fashion at work is underrated. As a screenwriter, my mates would disagree with me. 




Tyvn



– Favourite Fashion Item?: My Buddha to Buddha bracelet (made of silver and leather).

Tyvn (out of the coveralls)



– Your take on work fashion?: Personnels on the rig have to wear the boots, coveralls and glasses for safety reasons. They wear it cos its mandatory and sometimes it doesn’t fit right. 
There’s a difference between wearing your clothes and owning it or getting completely worn out by the colours, shape or size of what you wear. 
Truth is we live in a very visual society where everyone is judged by their appearance. 
Fashion is how you carry yourself in whatever it is you wear, poise, charisma, character.



Yewande Sobamowo



– Favourite Fashion Item?: Pencil skirts

– Your take on work fashion?: Fashion at work is Critical to build the image required for excellence. Think gladiators in suits.





Machu Atuanya



– Favourite Fashion Item?: Shoes

– Your take on work fashion?: It makes work bearable.





Stephanie Ij



– Favourite Fashion Item?: Pencil heeled shoes.

– Your take on work fashion?: www.metrogypsie.org.
