Meet the Ladybrille Team

Nana Danquaah Osafo, Contributor, is a student at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology, New York. Don’t be caught wanting on the fashion end because this image and style consultant, who caters and inspires her clientele to be Global Chic-embracing the richness and vibrancy of international fashion and decorum, will check you! Full time, Nana works as a corporate attorney in New York. She draws, paints, and serves on the board of a theatre company. Nana will be contributing fashion and style articles.

Moji Akinyemi, Contributor, is a fashion lover with a very independent, sexy, sophisticated approach to fashion. Once shy about showing off her sexy long legs, Moji is now enjoying doing just that! An avid traveler, she has traveled extensively within the USA as well as visited numerous countries including Mexico, Paris, London, Spain and Nigeria. Moji works fulltime as a recruiter for a major healthcare company in the DC/Maryland area. A graduate with a degree in Economics, she will be contributing fashion/travel articles.
Chiedu Ifeozo, Columnist, graduated with a master’s degree in Electronics Engineering from the University of Surrey, England. He currently works as a systems engineer at an IT firm in Lagos, Nigeria and devotes his spare time to his true passion, poetry. He has recently published a collection of poems inspired by his return to Nigeria, titled “Thoughts on a page”. He is fashion conscious, likes button shirts and suits, the formal and smart/ casual look, shoes and no trainers. His mother owns a tailoring business which manufactures trade and office wear for ladies and uniforms for hotels and industries. We strongly believe, here at Ladybrille, that Africa is the future Mecca of the world and that Africa's fashion industry will be a significant player in rebranding Africa's image and reviving its economy. That's where Chiedu comes in to help us stay abreast of the business climate in Africa, and how to transition from living in the West to living in Africa. He will keep us informed mostly through his personal experiences and poetry.

Toya Thomas, Contributor, Born and raised in New Orleans, Toya Thomas has called New Orleans home for over twenty years. A graduate of West Jefferson High School, Thomas was, in 2003, attending Nunez Community College in Chalmette, Louisiana, majoring in Culinary Arts and Theater, when Hurricane Katrina struck. Needless to say, the Hurricane rearranged her life and forced her to relocate.

Thomas ultimately returned "home" to New Orleans, November 2007. For her, however, the "home" experience was no longer the same. She had fallen deeply in love with the city. Using her ability to write creatively, Thomas began to explore deep rooted traditions of music, art and food in the “Big Easy.” “Writing gives me a release like nothing else. Vividly expressing my opinions on food, fashion, music or just life in general is what I love.” She is a mother of one lovely daughter.
