London fashion week

Hi there !

I am Cecile Essono,style blogger, fashion stylist and self-titled Afro chic Queen ūüėČ . I am from the fantastic country of ¬†Cameroon ¬†and I made London a home for the past 6 years.
As a child ,I used to make sophisticated clothes for my dolls and I was very good at it…I always had the thought that when I grow up I wanted to become the greatest fashion designer Cameroon has ever known .But unfortunately or fortunately maybe, back in Cameroon ,creative jobs usually don’t take you¬†very far in life.
 This was one of my main motivation to come to London, which  is an amazing city, where fashion is at its epitome.
While doing modelling works ,  I had the opportunity to meet wonderful creative friends and mentors who inspired me to believe in my dream.I used the modelling opportunity to learn how to use fashion as an armor of beauty and confidence to conquer my fears and uncover my true character. After a few years working as a model, I took an important step in my life, which  led me to become a fashion stylist,creative director ,blogger here on Modebycece.com where I am constantly challenging style & fashion, which is forever evolving. I am also now joining YouTube to provide my wise audience with weekly fashion updates.
Thank you for all your love and support and please do not hesitate to contact me, if you ever need help to unleash the fashion genius, who is  sleeping somewhere in you.

Prints-on-prints ¬†This past weekend, I had the privilege to style for a modelling agency .When styling a photo shoot,I am constantly adjusting the model’s attire,making sure all the details are in the right place.Therefore comfort in what I wear is always¬†crucial as I am always on my feet.

I wore this knee length pencil skirt that I got recently. It has a zip and slit at the back for a precise fit and I love the blue pattern on the skirt. Which for a safer option ,could have been paired with a black tank top or simply a white T-shirt.But as the risk taker that I am,I went for an all prints contemporary look with this long sleeve prints shirt from Orla Kiely;which always have a fun approach to fashion with their unique retro prints and designs.Therefore giving the whole outfit a modern 70’s flair.

So if you have been playing safe with your style until now why not try some prints on prints action this Autumn?I will suggest you start with the most minimalist you own and then gradually be more experimental until you get comfortable .
