Regardless of the medium we choose to express ourselves, one thing is clear, we all want to express ourselves, we all want to be seen and we all want to be heard. In simpler terms, one can assume that we are all looking for validation in one way/ form or the other.


I understand the need for human beings especially women to dress for society, or to dress in accordance in accordance with religious beliefs and cultural expectations. But all these have never stopped anybody from looking their best and letting their inner beauty shine through. 

Fashion and style is not just about keeping up with the trends. Lord knows this current economic situation will make it quite difficult for some. Fashion and style, should be about you. It should be focused on a desire to let the world see you, through your outer appearances.

The second of three wives of the former Emir of Qatar, Sheikha Mozah is a style icon. The epitome of grace and elegance, and this is evident through her personal style choices.


Temi Doll Face

One of Nigeria’s most divergent musicians, Temi doll face doesn’t seek permission form her culture or society to express herself through her music and style.



So what’s your excuse? No matter how little or how much you know, there’s always a medium to truly express yourself from the inside out. My medium is Fashion and Style. What’s yours?
