1, Stella Jean #Madeinitaly
Considered to be Armani's protege . Stella Jean's story philanthropic mission in fashion has somewhat seen it overshadowed by the new wave and obsession of ugly fashion and sportswear meets street style. Unlike the fantasy obsession with clothes which in this modern age has drastically changed it seems to be the questions designers in fashion houses think of. Stella Jean's Brand has been built with a fantasy the little distraction of the it fashion brand might let us see more of this talent .From her star studded story telling fashion shows to a new appeal of African inspired fabrics, Stella' journey begins with what we lack today in the industry, it's all stereotypes could be depicted through her, she's black, she is a woman one of the few female designers in the industry and then we here the new talk of feminism with Maria Grazia appointment at Dior, and of course am not saying that isn;t a mile stone the feminism should championed regardless and especially in an industry that caters to women's needs. Stella Jean other female designers should championed whether being appointed to a big house talent should be given more credit.And besides she has brand to her name.
Stella Jean AW17 COLLECTION
2 MAKI OH #MadeinNigeria
Considering the rise of Africa as a continous inspiration to designers in terms of aesthetic, but the sad truth is not everyone would recognise the new breed of creators changing the landscape of fashion in Africa and of course coming to the west. Amaka Osekwa the founder and creative director has very well kept Lagos Nigeria and the typical Nigerian woman to be like any other woman in fashion, her collection often tell real life stories of the women she celebrates growing up in a African setting, her collections makes you wonder about not often grasped easily at first sight (the Prada effect) but lets you dive into her stories with beautiful motifs and African woven fabric called Adire all made in the Heart of Nigeria. Her clothes have been worn by Former first Lady Michelle Obama, to Lupita Nyongo and Solange Knowles and of recent was seen on Beyonce in her Lemonade album.

REJINA PYO AW17 COLLECTION
.You might find it amusing and really tricky but yes it is fashion and certain things are possible. Christopher Kane's SS17 collection introduced quite an unexpected category to his collection and yes Crocs and Christopher Kane, Ok right now in fashion we are loving the whole collaborations between designers, brands and influencers, it's really encouraging on how aesthetics could see a different twist to to a whole new emerging fashion audience. But really some can't wrap their heads round Crocs and Christopher Kane. Although the collection got an amazing response, we then wonder how honest fashion is because the reality is people really hate crocs or maybe we the customers are probably just a victim of our sincerity to fashion and how we look
The Crocs as a footwear has a very lasting notion to people as being the easy and comfortable shoe and that you won't really go out on a date with, but like fashion and all surprises Pandora Sykes .took up the challenge to notwithstanding the fact of how we all hate this idea of Crocs becoming the real deal in fashion, Pandora Skyes amazing aesthetic and taste in fashion are probably giving us the second thoughts. Styling tips from Pandora!

Amazing Juun. J is a Korean fashion label that showcase in Paris. Born in Seoul, after graduating from ESMOD in Seoul, Juun launched his label in 2007 for menswear. He's known for giving intricate tailoring with deconstruction and reconstruction, and taking borderline risk of tailoring to menswear which brings another element of mens fashion that excites the industry, His collection takes an approach to a classic man going on sports and somewhat to call couture for the men, simply unimaginable but true. Another exciting element to this brand is how affordable they are, usually you would think Asian designers have thing for sky rocketing price point but Juun. J really takes into consideration every party to the brand it seems, currently stocked in Lyst.com, Farfetch, SSENSE . Here are looks from Juun.J AW 17 Men's wear collection

The questions on how involved Africa is in the global fashion industry, it seems like an underlying debate that many may still shy away from. With the array of talents and craftsmanship that deepens the roots of fashion designers and the rising population of youths in the continent, projects a promising future for online business and awareness within the continent. The social media phenomenon which has brought a great amount of prosperity for luxury brands and the demand for Luxury to increase, most partly thanks to the bloggers and Instagram making the best love story in Fashion.
However, this story may just be a Birdseye view to what fashion would only want you to see, how effective has the web made the fashion industry as global as some brands label themselves. Gearing e-commerce to fashion to the next level was the establishment of Net- porter in year 2000. Although as a household name which continues to dominate online retailing may not have had the effect of making fashion more accessible as it seems. Currently Net-a-porter does not deliver in Countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia, Angola and Ivory Coast etc. countries which have increasing numbers of luxury consumers.
In response to the shift of making luxury accessible, the rise of making African luxury more appealing to local customers and global consumers has brought the establishment of OXOSI an online retailer gearing up the looks of African luxury, and in the period of a promising population of youths and Instagram creating more platforms for a younger African generation and an effective global response taking Africa to world. Founded by Kolade Adeyemo, and Akin Adebowale.
Oxosi, stocks designers like, Nigeria’s favourites Maki Oh, Lisa Falowiyo, Bridget Awosika and Ivorian designer Loza Maleombho, Osei duro, Brother Vellies from Kenya, Selly Raby Kane of Senegal just to mention a few. The introduction of Oxosi into the fashion scene in Africa and the rest of the world as undoubtedly as the first premium e-commerce site providing a new narrative of African Luxury with better standards and contemporary taste to consumers around the world. As it continues to push boundaries competing with the likes of Net-a-porter, mytheresa.com, Boutique-1 and Avenue 32. A new change targeting luxury shoppers in Africa online in the fast growing dollar based economy, the best is definitely yet to come from Africa.

Longer Sleeves 3

In all brace we continue our Europe domination of fashion week in every city in Europe. The rainy start in Stockholm didn't stop the streets from being colourful and full with so much style. From the 29th of August to 31st. The energy was most definitely different, from cool serenity of designers display and making summer fill more like the calmest winter, notably the light length from Swedish finest Ida Sjostedt and satin flare pants in Greta Gram. Trends from the Stockholm fashion week seemed boundless, although nothing to new but with a little twist may be it just the Swedish flavour to every designer. And streets which we all excited about. From colours to trends and designers even outside Sweden.

It's really not easy to forget an amazing style and runways from the mens's fashion week. A bit of everything will be featured from Gosha to Craig Green to the new kids on the block Balenciaga. We could barely believe how time has flown, From every angle of the men's fashion week we got our favourite cues from the listed designers mentioned below and discovered a little trend that will be taking men's fashion. Will some say the men's fashion is boring lets give this a throwback and find out more.
Being backed by Comme Des Gracons wasn't the only thing to fill our mouths about Gosha, the spectacular thing about Gosha SS17 collection staged in Pitti Uomo was the undying conversation that goes on in fashion, brands collaborating together. Well lets just say Gosha pretty much summed everything for us. The unravelled Soviet nostalgia Gosha is famous for produced the aesthetic with the collaborating with brands like Bironi, Kappa, Levis and Fila sweat shirts. This may question some aspects of where the creativity lies within the collection, but for some this is just smart business moves.
2 Craig Green
Celebrating creativity in menswear is hardly acclaimed but Britain's celebrated designer may have pulled some stunts that seems exciting for fashion. without any further or due here are our exciting throwbacks from Craig Green SS17 collection.
3 Balenciaga's first menswear collection
As lucrative as the appointment of Demna Gvasalia his first womenswear show pointed out things to expect in future. The major bombshell was when we heard of Balenciaga's first menswear show, it has never happened but Demna made it happen. From the exaggerated sleeves to the boxed jacket this show was worthy of a throwback, could not resist here are our favourites from Balenciaga SS17 collection.
Okay September is approaching and for people who don't know why we are so excited about this month, well let me break it down for you guys. Firstly September is regarded to be New year of fashion, new season, new collections, more trends, fashion week, literally everything will be new in the fashion calendar. Which is the reason why fashion magazines make their September issues top notch, fresh faces on their covers or the latest people making the waves from actors, models and even fashion bloggers, the internet is really revolutionary. Here are the covers we are most excited about.
Today H&M shared three looks from their upcoming collaboration with Kenzo to Vogue.com today. From the looks, we definitely see the Kenzo aesthetic, the tiger stripes and exotic colours to match. We all love the wild weight off hipster cool taking over fashion but this really seems cool for not a niche audience but literally everyone. I mean even my grandma would love to rock tiger stripes. Although the collections drops in a months time, the creative directors Carol Lim and Humbertho Leon still remain one of fashion exciting duo. Still anticipating!
From Chanel to Acne, the summer is truly ready. Sunglasses this year are giving us the essentials and reminding us how hot the summer can be. This summer the eye wear game has to be on point, and trust me luxury brands have really done their assignments.This year it seems the the eye wear are taking a shift from the classical black Ray bans or thin frames, to bigger lens, bigger and wider frames, it's only safe to say most of it were inspired by this futuristic ideas, and honestly we are digging it. After the Rihanna's and Dior collaboration it all made sense she's a fan of star trek, LOL am just kidding, but Chanel and Acne Studios seem to be the ones leading this idea, hopefully more ideas and brands will follow . Tell me what you guys think about the ideas and leave your comments below.
