BRANDY'S VINTAGE AD CAMPAIGN FOR DKNY

I have discovered that i have an obsession with fashion editorials and ad campaigns. amazing,how they inspire me.

These are pictures of Brandy's AD campaign for DKNY,circa 1999/2000.





pretty cool,yeah.??

HAWT OR NOUGHT-> TAYLOR MOMSEN- FACE OF MATERIAL GIRLS' COLLECTION.


Many people apparently don't like Taylor momsen,either because of her role in gossip girl as "jenny humprey" or her unusual style.

BREAKING NEWS- I abso-FRIGGIN'-lutely love her style. its so dope and fearless.


Probably,i was the only one,who was ecstatic to hear that she was the face of Madonna and Lourdes' line,Material girl,which is named after madonna's 80's hits song.


this collection was released at Macy yesterday.
whatchu think??

NNEKA'S DISTINCTIVE STYLE.


C-c-can yo-ou fee-fee-feel my ha-heart is beating??
This is the lyrics to the song,"HEARTBEAT" by Nigerian-born,German-based artist,Nneka.. my fave song,at the moment..! Heard her album,Concrete Jungle is really good.. but i havent actually listened to all the songs,except Heartbeat.

I can remember the first day i saw her on stage,go to take an award.. i actually cringe and hoped to style her one day.. but now that i have amassed great knowledge in fashion and style.. i must confess that Nneka's style sure rocks.


Her style isnt like that of every regular girl.. she is more of an eccentric,wearing mismatched clothes and never looked like she made an effort to dress up.


She looks like she never cares about dress codes and has been known to wear an hoodie to collect an award.



She wears what she wants..and is not afraid of the attention it might draw to her.
her personal style rocks..and her hair is da bomb.
golly gosh,i'd still love to style her.!
*dreamy eyes*

DESIGNER REVIEW-FHIONA ELLIS.

While browsing the net,i came across the website of a designer/stylist,Fhiona Ellis. uber-fabulous designs,i decided to contact her and she granted me an interview.
my first interview ever..!! *yaaayyy*

Fhiona Ellis is a name that you will never forget. the designer/stylist is best known for creating "Experiences and Magic".



The collection is a collection of vintage,sexy,fun,fearless and edgy pieces.. ITS DEFINATELY FOR THE WOMAN WHO IS NOT AFRAID TO BE SEEN.
here is the interview with the talented Fhiona Ellis.

*TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF? WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
fhiona ellis: im from louisville,kentucky. i have been designing for 7 years. i started putting things together about the age of 14.i came about the name of my line,"REBIRTH" thru life.
i went through a lot of pain,hardship and felt my back was against the wall. after all i went through,God blessed me enough to make it to the othere side. i was a new person in him.i was free,had freedom and the old me died.. so no other word to describe me but "REBIRTH".






*WHAT DOES FASHION MEAN TO YOU?
fhiona ellis: Its one's life,how you feel. its not what magazines say or what TV potrays.i feel fashion is within you. i wake up and go off on how i feel.if i feel fierce and edgy,i go with that. fashion to me is my life,lifestyle,my ups and downs,my past and future.




*WHEN DID YOU START DESIGNING AND WANTED TO BECOME TO BECOME A FASHION DESIGNER?
fhiona ellis: i started at 14,and knew from then that i wanted to become a designer and didnt want to work for no one but me.




*YOUR DESIGNS ARE LOVELY AND EDGY,WHAT'S YOUR INSPIRATION?
fhiona ellis: my life!! like i said,i have gone through a lot. i was unstable,but now i'm comfortable with me and my market,so i draw inspiration from daily life.


*WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE MAKE AN EDGY PIECE OF CLOTHING?
fhiona ellis: you can turn anything and make it look Edgy. say i had a tutu dress.. i'd start with accessories,put on some edgy ankle boots and maybe a leather vest.

*HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
fhiona ellis: free and fearless.. i'm a combo of vintage-edgy-sexy-futuristic. just fearless.


*WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE FABRICS TO WORK WITH AND WHY?
fhiona ellis: i let the fabric speak to me. there is no favourite. whatever calls my name. *lol*

*AS AN AFRICAN BLOG,WE ITCH TO ASK IF YOU WILL EVER INCOPORATE AFRICAN PRINTS IN YOUR COLLECTION.(NOW OR IN THE NEAREST FUTURE)?
fhiona ellis: oh yes!! in my new collection,there will be a spice to it and a mix of that,but i have to be careful with the prints; there are a lot of designers moving towards that now and i dont want customers to get the line confused,but yes,i will have a little something in there.



*WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO TELL AS A WORD OF INSPIRATION TO UPCOMING FASHION DESIGNERS/STYLISTS?
fhiona ellis: have faith and keep God first. set your goals and mark them when you are done.WORK HARD..!! and most importantly,research.. Knowledge will keep you ahead.
