I was contacted by the managing director of Obsessory and while she was searching for influencers, Dats Muzik came up. She liked the tone and style of my blog, which really caught her eye and I was exactly what she was looking for. A couple of weeks later and here is the guest blog post below.
Fashion takes form in the most unexpected places. Then, music videos are just an extension of creative arts after all. From Rihanna’s vintage retro ensemble in Work, Work, Work to Adele’s gorgeous floral
Dolce & Gabanna dress in Send My Love To Your New Lover, we continue to get style statements that slay from our music idols.
But, would you remember these, say, 10-15 years from now? Sure, retro styles and feminine florals will never go out of vogue; however, we’re looking out for those iconic fashion pieces that continue to trend on even decades after they hit our TV screens.
And, that’s why we roped in blogger Francette Evans-Anfom...
Trust your own sense of musical style. Play whatever music or genre that makes you more confident, that motivates you throughout the day, that when you hear the beat or rhythm you're like 'yeah' and the grooves just come little by little. Music is very powerful. It unites the world, brings out your confidence, happiness and just makes you feel like you've got no problems in your life. Am I right? Music can alter your mood, increase your energy and mentally prepare you for the tough times ahead.

BBC Children In Need has been such a big part of many peoples life especially Terry Wogan, who started it all in the 1980s. Now to the present day and Fashion Collective London are putting on a fashion show to support this charity. Below are some of the photos of the build up for the event and loads more are shared on social media. I think it's still really important to move with the times and find ways to involve people and this is a brilliant idea.
Some celebrities are involved and Harik Millar & Avenard Couture are some of the fashion designers. That's all I'm going to say for now, as more will be written about this another time soon.
The fashion & media networking (charity awareness) event is next Wednesday 25th January at Hyde Kensington from 5pm and organised by Fashion Collective London. The actual event is during February. All who attends will have a great time.
''Fashion and music unites'' as Dats Muzik says and I believe these pictures just explain how beautiful and mainstream ankara material (african print) has become worldwide. Just look at Gwen Stefani and Jidenna... A few years and now, more than ever, Europeans and Americans are following the way West African's dress. Trying to be modern, unique and stand out in a way no one usually sees.
It's official- Arps London is here to set the trend for 2017, not follow them and the man behind it all, Alex Rose, brought the party to Libertine London a few days ago. It was his launch party and remember Arps London is a lifestly, not just a clothing brand.
Who knew that fashion designers could put on a party... "It's a new dance, no tango. Anywhere I go, I make the man go. Fester, fester, fester..." and "Teach me how to dougie, teach me, teach how to dougie...". This is just the start of the party. The night showcased Arps London, with a diverse range of hiphop, r'n'b, dance and dustup music playing to an excited and friendly crowd.
Before then, I met with the designer, for a few minutes and champaigne was offered. I got talking with him and his models, who were representing the brand. His friends and supporters all came in droves. Everybody danced, drank and had a good time.
