Even though I will be interning for magazines till December, I feel the need to travel.
I have been craving Nigeria more than ever these past couple of weeks and with the mass amount of This Day/Arise sponsored events at New York Fashion Week and now London Fashion Week, the urge to explore the Nigerian fashion scene is at an ultimate high now. With more freedom to do what I want without being tied down to school I think I should take up traveling for a bit!
I'm thinking a fashion back packing adventure is in order!
The pictures below are from, designer and fashion blogger, Akpos Okudu, who I went to high-school with, she lives in Port Harcourt city which is where I spent most of my high-school days. It really does excite me when I hear about the fashion industry in Nigeria. 6 years ago there was no fashion glossy and no fashion bloggers or even young designers sharing their work with a massive audience and now it is literally exploding. I cannot wait to visit.
Aren't her photos adorable?
