Hello everyone!

Being that I am African (Nigerian to be precise), I am always inspired by my culture and heritage; our colorful prints, our music and dance is all a part of who I am and I embrace it wholeheartedly because I love it so much. With my love for my culture and tradition in mind, its no wonder I would want to share it you all and what better way to express this than through my dressing?

As the new school session begins, I decided to collaborate with E.R.M clothing ( A Nigerian Fashion House based in Abuja) to bring you three outfits that you can rock on campus and off campus if you so desire. I hope you find this lookbook inspiring and eventually decide to add some prints and color to your wardrobe!

*** this would be good to wear for a day when you have a presentation or an interview **

 

While on location, we questioned the people passing by and gauged their response to each outfit. Majority of our interviewees unintentionally turned out to be African American females and when asked if they would wear such, they responded with a resounding “Yes!” while the other percent of interviewers were intrigued as to the patterns and the story behind each garment. So i went ahead to educate them on what it means to me to be African and be proud of where I come from, and no matter how much I travel, tour and explore the world… I would always touch base where home is.
