What an evening I had yesterday, at the Ethical Fashion Show. Well expect my full account on that later on. For now check out Oladunni Igbinedion's O'Emporium line from True love magazine spread. The picture above just happens to be my favorite. I love 50's style lace, it is not overwhelming. It is simple and classy. May I say not a bad price either looking at the tags on the dresses. I love true love magazine; the picture below shows the designer Dunni with her husband.

Now check out some more pictures from fashion spread featuring designer Dunni Igbinedion of Emporium




What do you think about Dunni's O Emporium style? I love it! Stylist 'Omoyemi Akerele'


Picture above is LAGOS

Entrepreneur Louise Priddy is certainly an inspiration, she opened up another swanky lounge right next to her other classy Night Club Bacchus in Ikoyi. When visiting Lagos a stop at Bacchus and Sixdegrees North is a must! Thanks once again to True love mag check out the pictures from the launch.
The stunning Louise Priddy pictured above.

What I love about this launch is her family's support of her venture. What else can an enterprenuer ask for? Pictured above are her brothers Sean Priddy and Dean Priddy.
From left to right Oona priddy, Bev Obatoyinbo of BAT, Valerie Priddy (her mom)and Yemi Osindero

Pictured below Louise and friends So readers what do you think? Have you visited SixdegreesNorth in Ikoyi? Are you thinking of ordering the Emporium line? What plans do you have for the weekend?

SWANKY SIX DEGREESNORTH LAUNCHES IN IKOYI LAGOS! DESIGNER DUNNI'S CLASSIC STYLE

picture from vogue
I realized I have not posted bollywood stories lately, and for that I do apologize. Well lets just say I got super excited when I saw the maiden edition's cover for Indian Vogue! Finally, a beautiful cover nonetheless. Nice to see vogue has finally ventured into the international market. Now the question is will they venture into Africa. If Conde Nast is reading this, I wouldn't mind heading the maiden African Edition. On the cover of this historic/collector's item are Gemma Ward (center) who coincidentally was also on the cover of the maiden Chinese edition, also featured on the cover are Bollywood stars Bipasha Basu, Priyanka Chopra and Preity Zinta, local supermodels MoniKangana Dutta and Laxmi Menon.
So ladies reading this from india, what are your thoughts?

Aside from a previous glitch, thanks to PASTICHE GROUP, a group I will personally not recommend, yours truly headed over to the classy French Embassy in Georgetown for the Runway Africa show.

The event went off without a hitch, the fashionistas were out and about. Guests were treated to a giveaway bag, which I heard a couple of guests questioning the contents of the bag, which had only water and a couple of pamphlets. My take is this could they have been expecting a small bottle of "Amarula" (the drink from the sponsors of the show). If that were the case they were quite mistaken.

The lowest entry fee was $40 so perhaps this was the reason why some folks were expecting a lot more in terms of the content of the bag.



Sika started off the show with her delightful designs (coincidentally, entrepreneur fashionista runway Africa founder, Clarissa in the picture above, wore one of SIKA'S designs). This was then followed by a sexy stylish lingerie show. BeezyMilan rocked the show with artsy designs. Of course, Blokesndivas from Nigeria did not dissapoint! I got a chance to meet the designer, Patrick and may I say he is quite charming and unassuming.
After the runway show, everyone headed over to POSH restaurant, which was also a lot of fun. But Naijagal had to leave early. All in all, a well put together program, kudos to Clarissa for making a dream a reality. Oh and the program raised money for the charity founded by IMAN called keep a child alive!

On to other fashion news, Baby Phat also showed their summer line for 2008 and judging from the style I would have to say "Fabulosity" (in the words of fashionista Kimora). Is it just my opinion or have we seen the look before? Well you be the judge!
