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.
Here are some of the shots from my recent shoot for @atm_kollectionz featuring model Charm. Kept her makeup minimal so there would be more focus on the pieces. Chose an outdoor set to create a lifestyle vibe. Contact @atm_kollectionz on Instagram for any of these pieces. View Post
My love for African brands knows no bounds. The icing on the cake occurs when it’s female owned. When L’aviye reached out to me to style their upcoming studio shoot, I decided to turn things up a notch by styling their pieces in a blogger-type lifeStyle way. Called on a friend of mine, Summer (apt name for the collection, haha), requested 2 pieces each of 6 styles and made a plan.
Shot on my street in London, 95% of the add-ons (tops, accessories, shoes etc) are bits from my closet. Here is how I styled;

Last week Thursday I was off to squaresuite in South Woodford to style and shoot an ankara collection, Atm Kollectionz’s. Worked with models Julie, Charm and designer, Chinelo and in 3 hours we were done. ATMK is an African owned brand with quality ankara ready-to-wear pieces and turbans. In 48 hours you and a friend will have a chance to win 2 pieces from their new collection. Just leave a comment on this particular post on Instagram tagging 3 of your friends and following their page here. Here are some of their stunning pieces..
