25 Jul

I am indeed a graduate! which is very cool and hasn’t actually sunk in yet! Been super busy moving, sorting out my many acquired items and growing up! The picture below proves that though my degree is over…work surely isn’t! I received a beautiful new camera as a present for the day….didn’t take me more than a few minutes to rip it out of its packaging….

Spotlight: Beautiful Parasols and Umbrellas….

9 Jul
Not that there’s an excess of sunshine, but when it does come out we love to look our best…. Lace parasols are becoming increasingly popular with weddings.They are perfect for shade on the beach, or photo-shoots. All the ones I first fell in love with were extremely expensive….but these are a little kinder on the purse strings. May add one or two to my birthday wish-list! Also included some pretty umbrella’s so this is not too depressing. Enjoy lovelies…

Hello Vlisco…..

I am a proud Nigerian. Hollandais wax prints have been a proud part of my culture for many years. In many ways they embody the characteristics of my people; beautiful, bold and elegant. Vlisco is one of the leading fabric designers mixing culture with current cutting-edge fashion design. I’m not going to lie….i do want every single one of these outfits…

Since 1846 Vlisco has been designing and producing colourful fashion fabrics that form an essential part of the lively West and Central African culture. Vlisco has an innate sense of the expressive and creative strength of African consumers and, for generations, has succeeded in surprising and inspiring her passionate clientele with unique designs. As the sole authentic designer and manufacturer of such fabrics as ‘Wax Hollandais’, Vlisco is unparalleled when it comes to quality, professional skill and innovation.
The Vlisco strategy is aimed at enabling well-to-do African women to experience the brand in all her facets and to maintain the leading position, not only in the area of design, but also in terms of total brand orientation. Developments take place at neck-breaking speed in Africa and Vlisco aspires to inspire and gain the loyalty of younger generations as well. Innovation is therefore an essential element within the company. In keeping with this, a new collection is launched every quarter, featuring a specific theme in which international trends in a variety of areas are translated into distinctive Vlisco designs.

Furthermore, every quarter a new Vlisco fashion and accessories collection is launched in the four Vlisco Boutiques in Africa. The clothing lines ser
