BACK FOR GOOD?

Hey Guys!
I took a break to get things balanced and ended up staying away for more than 5 months.*sigh*
I am still very confused about the direction i want my blog to take but i guess i'd figure it out as i go on. It's pretty much hard juggling things in my life nowadays that i even end up being less active on Social Media except Instagram where i regularly post outfit pictures and randoms/fashion projects i am working on.
That being said, I am the new brand director of luxury brand, Lanre Da-silva Ajayi couture and it's been amazing working with the team. it also makes me push myself to be the best that i can be and also think of innovative ways to push the brand forward as regards marketing, production, brand positioning and structure etc.
We recently shot these AD campaign pictures for our Spring/Summer 2014 collection called "Colour Storm". i was so happy that the pictures came out exactly how i wanted it to be.
















Elsie Vintage is also going strong after 4 years and im pretty happy about that. 
I am looking forward to let y'all know what i have planned for it.
For now, Do follow Elsie Vintage on Instagram (@ElsieVintage )
More posts soon.

WOW MAGAZINE FEATURE!

Hey guys!!!
Been so long since I blogged.
Life has been hectic. Workload has been quite heavy. My MacBook crashed a while ago and I'm still waiting for it to return to me. I just finished working on the production of  GTB Lagos Fashion and design week with a dope ass team and I'm pretty pleased at how the show went alongside meeting really cool people on the team.
Presently blogging with an iPad and if all is well with the layout of this post, I guess I'd try to keep up with the blogging game.

The new issue of Wow magazine is out with the lovely Dolapo Oni on the cover and she looks stunning. I really love the fact that Wow magazine made the cover more like a beauty shot.


I was also featured in the magazine alongside other dope creatives as WOW magazine's 12 powerful Nigerian creatives under 25. This gladdens my heart and also motivates me to work harder.





Don't forget to get a copy.

SISIANO - MS GREEN,THE BEGINNING

Hey guys!
I am back again.
I am so sorry for the lack of posts. I guess i lost my blogging mojo and was so busy trying to put things together. I am so thankful to the sweethearts who took out time to call me out on my bullshit and motivate to get a-blogging! (especially you,@designerkath! :) *Big Hug*)

I got sent this Look-Book last week and was so busy to open up the images. Finally decided to check it out during the weekend and i was blown. Do bear in mind that this is a collection by an emerging designer yet all the pieces are so perfect.  i'd kill to have them all. The prints, color scheme, cohesion etc is PERFECTTTTTT.

The Brand SiSIANO says that this collection (Ms Green - The beginning) is a gift to the 'Modern day Woman' – One who is sophisticated in her style, luxurious in her appreciation of fashion and devoted to aesthetically appearing at all times. The price range of the pieces are between N16k - 40k.
