Ladybrille African Fashion News #18

The recently completed ESPY Awards seemed like loads of fun! Great to see Ms. Williams stepping up her fashion game. She continues to refine her style image. Shaquille also looked great! I must say the ESPY Awards has come a long way. They now realize fashion, movies, music and sports just work well together. Celebrities from all areas of the Entertainment industry where walking the red carpet. Quick highlights: LaDianian Tomlinson with the San Diego Chargers won 'Best Male Athelete' of the year. 'Best Female Player' went to Lisa Leslie of the Los Angeles Sparks. Tiger Woods won 'Best Golfer.' African designers, to me, there is ample opportunity to tap into the power of American celebrities, especially black celebrities. Keep networking and get your African sophisticated silhouettes to their PR/stylist[s]. It's only a matter of time when a crisp, smooth, hot looking sokoto[ pants] and buba [top], for example, is seen on someone like Shaquille on one of America's many red carpet events. Going straight into our weekly collection of fashion News related/about Africa:

Fashion Moves in Africa's Fashion Industry: Omoyemi Akerele, one of Nigeria's top stylist and joint owner of Exclusive Styling Design and Image Consultants, has recently been tapped to become the stylist to the first lady of Nigeria, Hajia Turai Yar’Adua in Aso Rock. [Aso Rock is like saying the White House. It is located in the Northern part of Nigeria in Abuja, Nigeria's capital]. Yemi is known for her work at True Love Magazine, West Africa. She is also the style consultant for the hit-show, 'Deal or No Deal.' Click here to catch a glimpse of Ms. Akerele at work.

It gives insight into the new president of Nigeria to hear of his first lady's taste in fashion.

My weekend was safe but only slightly brilliant.
