This week, the image I’d like to show is from one of my earliest published editorials, that I styled almost ten years ago (I know!!!!).  I look back at it and get such a strong feeling of nostalgia… I was so lucky that when I started out styling in London, I was fortunate enough to be loaned clothes from top luxury designers like Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF).

stylistflashback6I like this picture for several reasons:

1) I still love the DVF jacket the model is wearing.

2) The bold clash of colour and print.

3) The fusion of mixing Western and African influences, which is what I have stayed true to till this day.

4) During the shoot, I had a lady on hand who tied all the headpieces, and I love the head tie shape she created in this shot.

5) All the jewellery is from one of my favourite jewellery stores in the world: Pebble London.  If you love ethnic-inspired jewellery, headpieces, decor and craft work, you have to, HAVE TO make a trip there!  Their pieces are composed of fabulous metals, stones, wood, glass, coral and amber from places like India, China, Africa, Thailand and South America.
