I was asked to work for the Screen Nation Awards as a general stylist this year, precisely last Sunday. Styling the screen nation awards with Idriss Elba winning on the night. Duties were to overview everything from hairstyling to the makeup of the models. Plus their fashion styling. Using Nzingha accessories, Massassbi skirts, and Angela corsets designs.

So first for work, I was dressed very casually.Then for the show, I changed into an ensemble of matching silk prints top and skirt I scored from MinkPink and the Jimmy Choo I have literary been killing lately and loaded the outfit in accessories (as usual).

**So feel free to click below and shop the look or similar.

What I have noticed so far in my styling journey is; every time I thought I scored a big gig, an even bigger opportunity came along. I am simply getting used to one challenging task after another and learning along.It also shows me how much perseverance having the right attitude is really the key.And as much as I love and value what I do.Being recognised is always encouraging.

London Fashion Week Mens.Happy New year dear readers. Starting the year with nothing less than London Fashion Week Men. That I attended for the first time last week.  I love men garments as they always seem to have classy cuts, durable materials, and neat finishes. Men’s fashion was not a priority of mine so far. But after working with some great clients last year, this fashion week was a perfect way forward refreshing and updating my knowledge of men’s fashion.London Fashion week Men/Modebycece

The shows took place in The Store Studios at 180 Strand which is the hub for activity during London Fashion Week Men’s. The venue houses the main BFC Show Space & Presentation space on the ground floor while the Designer Showrooms including ready-to-wear and accessories & DiscoveryLAB are located on the first floor.London Fashion week Men

After London Fashion Week Mens the shows, we attended an incredible presentation by Drifters. But what I loved the most, was the invitees’ sense of style. Probably one of the most fashionable party and the most creative crowd I have met under one roof so far.

  What I loved about her, was everything from her entry to her outfit and her allure.Literally, this look, made me fall in love with fashion and creativity all over again. I mean that latex Kimono is just genius, those micro glasses, the red satin boots, the faux fur and that corset ohh!! She gave me life as they will say on Instagram.

  2. See what’s trendy or will be trending
  3. Discover and connect with new designers
  4. Do research for my next big write up
  5. Get more designs for my future lookbooks.

Yesterday, I attended Graduate Fashion Week. As always , I was very excited to discover new talents. But earlier, I had a meeting to attend; so a comfortable outfit and shoes were a must! I opted for a fresh pop art-Afro chic girl look…If that is even a thing, oh well! An oversize white T-shirt with flower and camera prints matched with a splashed paint cropped trouser.The perfect shoes had to be those squared heels gladiator flats.

Anyway, Graduate Fashion is actually a charity organisation founded 26 years ago by Jeff Banks CBE, Vanessa Denza MBE and John Walford to unify both UK and International universities and create a stronghold for the creative industries.
