Last weekend was awesome...the fashion show was cute...the models, the designers, the stage, the dancers!!! everything!!!
Sooo I have this problem with African Shirts for men....it is something I don't really get. I know nobody died and called me Anna Wintour BUT this trend has got to stop. It is UGLY and I have never seen an African wear one unless he is a bus conductor in Nigeria of course...I don't understand why African designers feel the need to add this item of clothing to their already nice collections....if it is hard to design male clothes, DON'T! it is really not by force. I cannot count the number of times I have seen male models walk down the runway with an unattractive short sleeve shirt made of African fabric with a pair of jeans. I mean at least can we have like some designs here and there? Cap sleeves if any and pls can we mix some other materials in there so that we can actually differentiate that particular shirt from the many others that are out there. I always ask my male friends if they would wear those shirts and I always come up with the same answer.....starts with N and ends with R...I am not trying to knock anyone down but I know that most of these designers are creative and that they can actually make this "African male shirt" work. I mean damn...their female clothes are hot so why can't their male clothes be abi????
ANywayyyy.....we totally went for a really Fab! event this saturday!!! I love Fab girls!! They are awesome!!! It was my friends bday and we all went...Bolaji included. It was at the Ritz in G-town...awesome location by the way....Got to meet loads of cool peeps and stuff...unfortunately my memory stick is gone so alas! I am without piccies!!!Oh the HORROR!!!
Before that though, we had an interview for HauteTV....I was soooo shy...lol....I AM SHY! and so what????but I think it went pretty well....cannot wait to see it!!! It is coming soon to HauteTV tho! For now, check out Doreen interviewing Ifueko of Idia at Fashionafrica.com. I think she did a pretty good job considering the fact that this was her first attempt at interviewing.
Hope you guys have a great rest of the week...I have exams and I am trying to sketch for our next collection so wish me luck oo!!!!
