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…

She’s a beautiful fashion blogger and model but don’t let the cute face and curly locks fool you. This young day is both beauty and brains. Nada is from Manchester and holds a degree in Law, she’s a massive face on the web and her fans love her (70 thousand of them on Instagram).
She made my job amazingly easy even though this was her first ever Lingerie shoot.
I must say i had a fantastic team and the synergy was fantastic.
Anyways i think i should rest my fingers and let the pictures do the talking….
Photography: Ola Ajani
Make up Artist: Alma White Ruiz
Lingerie: Nichole de Carle

hope you’re having a great weekend so far… A few months back i worked on a Little project called the Giddimint Photoseries.
The Photoseries was an idea i came up with a friend and my Oga (Boss) at the top Kelo Okeke of Giddimint.com for his site. The project showcases and shed light on young visual creatives in Nigeria through the Giddimint platform. We got these young creatives to use tshirts and products from the site to create images to showcase their creative prowess and i was fortunate enough to work with Baba Agba.
Baba is an Amazing up and coming photographer who shoots on solely film. For his Photoseries we came up with the idea of merging tees (all sold on Giddimint.com) with ball gowns and more or less high fashion pieces and the result is the collection of Images below.
I love the texture of these images and i must say it is always a great feeling to support up and coming creatives from Nigeria.

I styled these beautiful and amazingly talented ladies last year.
The inspiration for this shoot is pretty clear…
I love the CEO dancers and if i had the chance i will style them at least twice a year as they are open to creative directions, their enthusiasm to try new things is highly infectious and most importantly they are the most professional dancers i have ever styled till date. So i guess it is safe to say they live up to their name…

Creative direction by yours truly

I know, I have been away for a hot minute now and I do apologize to you guys who actually follow my blog and support me religiously, blame it on the workload and my inability to be somewhat more organized. I promise, I am improving on that aspect of my life…
So! my first post or next couple of posts since my going AWOL will be on projects and stuff I have been up to aside taking pictures of myself in pretty ensembles lol.
This latest post was a shoot I styled late last year for WOW magazine. The inspiration for this shoot was literally Christmas. It was more like “what would you treat your man to on the first day of Xmas” theme.
The image was shot by Ade Okelarin, Make Up by Toni Kemi and Debi AFriyie was my muse for the day… I particularly love this shoot as I think I did achieve my goal. I wanted the images to ooze the right amount of sexiness without being too erotic. Debie was an absolute pleasure to work with. She took directions pretty well making my job pretty easy…
If you live in Lagos Nigeria, grab yourself a copy of the magazine and let me know what you think.
