obviously by now you should have heard of Blanck magazine (www.blanckdigital.com), but if you haven’t i am more than happy to fill you in on what Blanck is all about. Blanck is a Fashion magazine with a conscience, It’s an open book that celebrates African creatives and also shed light on topical issues affecting the nation.
The tear sheets below are from the latest issue of the magazine. I am proud to be associated with the publication and grateful for the experience so far. As a Fashion Editor you think about not just the styling, but the flow of the magazine, what you feel your readers want and what interest them. How to stay ahead of the game, be topically relevant without losing the cool factor and most importantly having a good product. These are just a few things i do for the magazine and i must say in as much as it seems like a lot of work, it has been a fun ride all the way. Working with my team and other creatives in the field has been a blessing and learning about the African Fashion media industry through a veteran like Franka Chiedu i must say is priceless. Here are tear sheets from the latest issue of Blanck . you can also subscribe to the site to get the latest updates on fashion and other interesting news and also be the first to know when it comes to future issues. You can also join in on the fun on instagram by following Blanckdigital.
So before i leave you, i would love to know who your favorite celebrity cover is…

its been a minute since i wrote on my blog as i have been a pretty busy bee. Its summer time and sort of like a high season for styling gigs especially for music and entertainment clients. 2-3 weeks ago i worked with the beautiful Tiwa Savage and styled 2 videos from her forthcoming debut album; Once upon a time. As soon as i have the permission to let the cat out of the bag, you guys will be the first to know x.
So less i digress, i styled the African Superstar Iyanya last weekend and i must say it was both stressful and exciting. It is totally different from editorial or the normal photo-shoot concept as you always have to be on the ball and time is always of the essence. Anyways i think i will ease up on the words and let the images do the talking.
T-shirt: Mr Garbe Fela
Trainers: Guiseppe Zanotti
I decided to wear my comfortable wedge trainers as i wanted to be able to runaround like a headless chicken with the coolest wide brim hat just incase things dont go as planned
which was literally the case in this situation.
All in all it was a great experience and as this isnt my first time of working with Iyanya, it was humbling experience to style such an amazing talent.
i am Always proud to toot my African horn and this case is no different

I am super sorry I haven’t been as active as I should be on my blog but I do hae a very good reason. I have been working my little but off on https://youtube.com/gidiculturetv/ and other little projects you all will hear of pretty soon. So all that said the next 2 posts on the blog will give you an insight into what we get up to in the studio when filming an episode of https://youtube.com/gidiculturetv/
In the images below I am wearing a jersey dress from Topshop which I absolutely love. The jersey feels good on the skin, the extrude is perfect; not too light which reduces the chance of it being see through and not to heavy so it isn’t a nightmare to wear and reduces the chances or the dreaded armpit sweat. And at 26 quid it’s an absolute bargain
My shoes are Stuart Weitzerman and Necklace is from Dorothy Perkins…
