Hey Everyone, I’ve been M.I.A from the blogosphere for a while. As the filming date for my Silverbird TV (STV) Show draws nigh, my blogging will be more sporadic, but I’ll always come back. Between organising and shooting my TV Promo Images, working with STV’s Head of Marketing, liasing with the cameraman, trying to find a model to feature for the show, writing the script for the show, doing work for the school and then dealing with L.I.F.E, sheeeeeeEEET…
Now back to the Topic At Hand, recently I was the Style Consultant for a friend of mine- Ernest O Look- who has set up a casual wear line, ‘Ernest Look’. To launch his online shop, he organised a shoot featuring male models and a female model wearing his custom-made T-Shirts. As the models would be wearing his T’s incorporated with their clothes, part of my job as Style Consultant was to send mood board images and text to the team illustrating the various ways his T’s could be incorporated with smart and casual ensembles.
Strictly speaking, my To-Do list was overflowing but what really convinced me to do the shoot was the female model-Lisa aka Leeza- is a close friend of mine. I love to do photo shoots with close friends and such opportunities come so rarely, that when they do, I’m on it!
With regards to the Menswear, my favourite look was the look modelled by one of the male models, Noah. For one of his looks, I was inspired by this particular image I found online:
Blazer and Shorts Menswear Trend
So imagine my delight when Noah told me that seeing this image, he was inspired to go to H & M and buy this blazer and shorts:
Black Blazer with Trousers/Leggings Womenswear Trend
With Leeza, I liked the ‘No Nonesense Sexy Vibe’ of this image I saw online:
For summer, you can’t go wrong with a chic pairing of a pencil skirt with a fitted T, punctuated with fab statement accessories. Write that down.
My favourite models together:
If you’re a stylist, you know how it is: there are always looks you style on the day that weren’t on your mood board, on the day you get inspired and pull a look out of your ass…this was my hat/ass trick:
Crop Top and Ankara Print Skirt, Womenswear Trend
Since I discovered this image by Nigerian Style Maven, Folake Huntoon (Style Pantry), I’ve been longing to buy Ankara print material and get a midi skirt made.
And so I did, but I paired my Ankara skirt with a crop top and previewed the ensemble at the shoot:

It really was a great Berlin Day…weather was on point, and I was doing one of the things I love…
And back to you, which is/are your favourite trend/s here? What look would you wear or do you like men wearing? Do tell I’d love to know!
