For the Love of Arts

While on holiday in Nigeria, I attended an event for the introduction of a Modern Day School Of Arts University in Nigeria. Basically, the first pure arts university in the country. It featured lots and lots of talented artistes and a gallery of their art works.

One of the brains behind this initiative is my HFA boss and dear friend Dami Amolegbe. She partnered with her friend Adenrele Sonariwo to come up with this big dream that's coming to fruition midyear. So look out for that. Photos from the event and further information about the institution are available here and here.

I, on the other hand, was trying hard to avoid the camera. Someone somehow managed to get a picture of me and I thought I'd do a collage of my look...

 Here's a collage of what I wore:

Happy New Year everyone! I know I've neglected you, I even wonder to myself how you've been fairing without your usual fashion manna. It's alright, I have returned after a long hiatus that consisted of preparing for exams, holidaying and general rigma-rolling.

I have a lot to catch up with fashion wise, I didnt even know till Monday morning that the Golden Globes was on Sunday. I missed E!'s red carpet show.... *sigh*. At leats I have the SAGs and the Oscars to look forward to. Here's a piece I did for HauTe Fashion Africa, in time for the award season. Read all about it here

In the mean time, anyone with new year fashion resolutions they'd like to share. I have one, to be more adventurous with my style, unafriad of a fashion faux pas or two... xx
