Thank God it's Friday!
How was your week? Hope you had an amazing week? Mine was amazing, thanks for asking :).
As you already know, today is Friday and we get to feature a FASHION LOVER and you guys decide if they are really a fashion lover :).
Today's fashion lover is a fellow blogger, a lady whose style I truly admire. She also has a lovely shape.
Let's decide if Brenda is a Fashion Lover.
FNL: In few words tell us about yourself?
Brenda: Well my name is Brenda, I am a young professional currently residing in Toronto although I am Cameroonian and was born in Libreville,Gabon.
I love my family, my friends, food, music,dressing up and my blessings from God.
FNL: What does fashion mean to you?
Brenda: Fashion means looking how I feel and keeping an open mind to different styles and trends. I'm a happy person who loves good times and so my style is colorful with lots of patterns and prints.
FNL: What inspires your style?
Brenda: My style is mostly inspired by my mood, the weather and colours.
FNL: Describe your style in 3words?
Brenda: My style in 3 words would be "colour meets print."
FNL: Who are your style icons?
Brenda: My style icons are first and foremost fellow bloggers like KT Reed, Agatha of Irony of Ashi, Cynthia of Addicted to Etsy, Shirley B Eniang and then there are bigger names like Audrey Hepburn, Solange Knowles and Carey Mulligan.
FNL: What are your most favorite stores and why?
Brenda: My favourite stores include: Asos, Boohoo, Forever 21, Nasty gal, Gojane, H&M, Zara and Andrea Iyamah. I love them because of their diversity and also affordable products. They also sell lots of practical pieces as well as stand out pieces.
FNL: Who are your favorite designer brands and why?
Brenda: I actually can't count the number of "designer" brands I own. If you don't count Zara, my favourite designer brands would be Herve Leger, Stuart Weitzman, Hermes, Celine, Gianmarco Lorenzi, Versace, Rachel Roy, DIane Von Furstenberg, DKNY, Balmain, Vera Wang, Valentino and Alexander Wu (none of which I own,haha). I love these in particular because a lot of their products cater to a variety of sizes of women, actually look good and seem very wearable.P.S. Who doesn't dream of wearing a Vera Wang dress!
FNL: What are your favorite pieces in your closet?
Brenda: My favorite pieces would be my Zara tote, Gojane sandals with a gold heel, Asos Little black dress, Kente skirt, Extra large floppy hat, Ankara high-low skirt.
FNL: What fashion item can you not do without?
Brenda: I'm pretty sure I can do without everything I own but I like my DSLR camera to bits and pieces...not sure if that counts as a fashion item but I do use to create all my posts!:
FNL: What is your take on the African Fashion Industry?
Brenda: The African Fashion industry is moving forward. A lot of African designers are finally getting the recognition they deserve and are also becoming more mainstream. Some ankara piece are being seen as Haute couture and this is just amazing! From the Asos for Africa line to the African line of clothing at Selfridges in the UK to celebrities wearing our designers' pieces; it's just beautiful how our industry is getting recognition and I hope this continues. I wish to see more African designers use Social media to promote themselves even more I feel like that holds some designers back, the fact that they do not make use of modern social media.
FNL: What won't you be caught wearing?
Brenda: I won't be caught wearing tights and a crop top with socks and sandals...ever.
FNL: What do you think about Fashion and Lover's blog?
Brenda: Fashion and Lovers blog is such a positive environment. I also like how you are not afraid to bring up and talk about your spirituality because I feel like some people are still afraid to "offend" others with their Religion, which is just silly! Keep staying true to yourself!
