Read excerpts of the interview below…. Tell us about your journey into the world of blogging… I started blogging in 2013 and it was my little way of escaping from all the school work i had (still is) and just expressing myself. It wasn’t anything serious and i never considered it as a brand per say, it was just one of those things i enjoyed doing as well as uploading dance videos on my then Youtube channel (Don’t check for this though, i removed them already lol) but somewhere along the line in 2015, i decided to re-brand as i had gained more knowledge on the world of blogging and how it could be so much more than what i saw it for and so i did. Moved ship to TOYINWITHFASHION.COM and there’s been no turning back from there since then. What brands have you worked with? I’ve worked with quite a few brands some of whom include, Dobblebees, Lash by GlamGirl, Esmadelle, The Zee Brand, Nineteenth Shoes, Aimanosi, etc. Looking forward to working with more What is the inspiration behind your personal sense of style? I believe my personal style is still evolving as so many things inspire me and some things i can’t afford right now -_- but most times it would be my personal state of mind, the climate and comfort . Who is your favorite fashion designer right now? I’m not really one to have a favorite because I love a lot of things or in this case, designers. However, Michael Cinco has always been one of my favorite designers and is still on that list. His designs are elegant and outstanding. I can recognize his creation anytime, it’s that unique. Describe your sense of style in 3 words. Comfortable, Edgy and Chic Name 3 fashion accessories that you cannot leave the house without… My wristwatch, rings and a neck piece. Apart from fashion, what are your other interests? Ohh there’s a long list of them. From Dancing to singing, hair styling, makeup and everything in the arts. Now I wonder why i never went to art class in secondary school Do you have a personal website? Yes i do, it is TOYINWITHFASHION.COM What are your future plans in the world of fashion blogging? To make toyinwithfashion a site to reckon with among fashion enthusiasts around the world.
Apart from fashion I’m interested in dancing to singing, hair styling, makeup and everything in the arts. Now I wonder why i never went to art class in secondary school.
