Hello Readers,

The #ootd (outfit of the day) or days in this particular post are a combination of different style ideas.

I include a Mix & Match series (African meets Western), ¬†show different ways to dress an item, attempt to bring back collar and statement necklaces and a little bit of ‘randomness’. LOL.

Let the pictures do the talking:

  • Ways to wear:

Playful stockings as I like to call them, to add a little style to your winter fashion:

The International Fashion Encounter Dubai Fashion Show

Lets throw back to the 26th of November, 2015 when the International Fashion Encounter Fashion Show held in Business Village, Dubai.

I was privileged to meet the renowned Jason Cameron, CEO of the Toronto Fashion Academy and a well known Fashion guru in the entertainment industry , known for his  Fashion Styling, Fashion Show Choreography, Events Coordination, Acting & Modeling Agent & Booker and an Instructor and Life Style Coach. Having been in the the Entertainment and Fashion Industry for over 15 years,  he has worked with several mainstream brands along with bringing International Fashion Week to Toronto as well as several concerts and charity fundraisers. He was honored with a plaque on October 9th, 2013 from the United Nations National Women Committee of Canada for his outstanding and on going support. I was also privileged to meet his very lovely wife. They are both honestly such a delight, warm, friendly and are a wealth of insight in fashion. Amazing people! He is also the brain behind the International Fashion Encounter (IFE), a platform catering to local consumer markets from around the world. The aim of the IFE is to bring those interested in various exciting fashion trends from around the world together with designers from around the globe. It is a fashion and lifestyle show.
