Fashion | Breakfast with Ituen Basi

Hey guys,
You all know me, I always say I am not a fashion blogger but then end up at really cool fashion shows and events I am almost wont to add 'Fashion blogger' to my blog description.

So once again, I got invited to a really cool fashion event. Let me start from the beginning. There are very few fashion designers I love in Nigeria (can't afford them but I love them all the same), Ituen Basi was recently added to that list, I absolutely love how she literally molds fabrics to do her bidding. It is fascinating.

Like I was saying, I was on my own, on my seat at work and I got a call from a number I don't know, I picked and was promptly asked if I would be available for an Ituen Basi press conference. My heart skipped and I had to get her to repeat herself. Of course I would be available na (so help me God). A couple of hours, text messages and mails later, I got my formal invite to the Breakfast with Ituen Basi press event.
I wanted to try out the iPhone again and didn't take that many pictures so I will start with random pictures I stole off of Twitter and Instagram from others who attended the event and proceed to the pictures I took myself.

and of course we had to get it from the top #instagramtins. Are you sure I shouldn't go into food blogging?
oh, and this is how I looked today. Simple makeup, with one of my Elsie Vintage skirts and a simple black tee
I will bring to you a more comprehensive post with better images (stolen off others you can be sure) along with pictures of the cool stuff in my goodie bag next.

Have a wonderful weekend guys, I may or may not be visiting Calia MedSpa tomorrow. Will definitely keep you in the loop.

  2. omg. I love hair and the hairstyles are just breathtaking.

  3. I love Ituen B too, a few years ago, I was asked by Arise to pick a designer from their Arise NFW shows to profile and style and I chose Ituen. it was such a delight to get my favourite picks from their collection flown from Lagos to London...

    1. OMG, having your choice pieces shipped to you is super amazing. I will be in second heaven if it were me.
      Thanks for visiting, fellow IB lover *wink*
