I keep getting comments at work about how I “run away” from form-fitting clothing. This is totally untrue. I just have a lot of tom-boyish ways and I love my comfort. There’s something about clothing that’s loose fitting -you can breathe, you can eat to your heart’s content and you can be free! One of my favourite places to shop for such clothing is COS (Collection of Style). Blouse: COS| Jeans: ZARA Photography: Toyosi Faridah Kekere-Ekun Love and Comfort! Kike  & Tobi

I’m really excited about this month’s issue of WOW! magazine. Why? Because my very first editorial is in it! I decided to call it “CONTROL” for a number of reasons; I was inspired by menswear for this shoot and I’m really pleased with the results! Toyosi shot this editorial and I’m way too excited to share this, as this was also her first editorial. (The black and white idea worked!) Here’s a bit about the this months issue from the editor: This edition is packed with a bumper harvest of over 160 pages of exciting fashion, featuring prominent designers from…

When I’m not working as a lawyer, I’m living and breathing fashion. I recently styled a shoot for Wow Magazine, my very first editorial. I’ve been thinking about  moving away from personal styling/ personal shopping and focusing on editorials. Editorials allow you express yourself a bit better; it’s almost like a blank canvas and you’re free to do whatever you want. I’ve always been a huge fan of black and white photography, there’s something so mysterious an artistic about it. Being a bit of a tomboy, menswear-inspired womenswear makes me very happy; I decided to combine these two interests. I…

Frockit Rockit was launched in 2009; offering a tailoring service as well as vintage pieces. I discovered Frockit Rockit a few years ago but I got to know the label a bit better when I worked with its Creative Director, Tope Abiola, last year at Music Meets Runway. I love the fact that these wrap-dresses come in different colours and lengths; clients can select fabric and a design from their collection to suit their shape and style. You can visit the Frockit Rockit website here, to get a better idea. You should also check out Tope’s Instagram (@Topefnr), you’ll be tempted to buy every single dress…
