|Edward Enninful the editor-in-chief of British Vogue|
When Edward Enninful was named Editor in Chief for British Vogue, my social media timeline blow up. Edward is originally from Ghana, raised in Great Britain and have been stylings for fashion magazines since he was a teenager. Mr. Enninful has put in work for decades styling and consulting and he still to manage to remain humble. He has worked with all the major models, campaigns and magazines, stays out of the drama and the reality shows that many people dive into for fame reasons. Here's the thing, the everyday Joe or Jane may not know who Edward is, but that's ok because he's styled some of my favorite editorials. See below of my 10 favorite editorials/campaigns that Edward styled.

|7 Inspected Trends from the Fall/Winter '17 Collections|
Fashion Month came to a close not that long ago and what I love doing on here is combing through the collections from New York, London, Milan and Paris to inspect the trends. After looking at what it seems like a hundred of shows and attending a few shows in New York, it's hard not to notice the common thread with a few of them.

Denim, a very practical and utilitarian piece of clothing that everyone pretty much has in their closet. While most of us wear some kind of a denim basically everyday, we don't treat this material with the best of care. Whether you have a pair of jeans you love or your go-to jean jacket, you still want to make sure they're in the best looking and feeling condition.
In order to get the run down on denim care, I ask Evelyn Ober, the creative director of STS Blue, a denim line is inspired by the casual LA and Southern California vibe. We all know people in the California loves their jeans! Here's what Evelyn said,
"Personally, I soak my denim in a bathtub of cold water and white distilled vinegar for 45 mins. They lay flat to dry, the vinegar smell will go away once dry. It maintains the color and locks the original indigo. Did you know water itself will wash away denim dyes over time? And add soap or commercial chemicals found in detergent to water and it will effect and essentially ruin the authentic wash or color you originally bought. I suggest you do this vinegar dip every 2-3 months."
Evelyn indulged me into another cool trick... no pun intended!
"Here is a trick not many people know of…you can FREEZE denim! Put the jeans direct in the freezer unprotected or on a ziplock bag. Freezing kills some bacteria and it gives a quick refresh!
NEVER wash jeans with hot or warm water, and never add bleach because it fades denim. Ideally hang jeans to dry."
Well there you have it, cold water, vinegar and freezer are ways to take care of your denim.
You're welcome! :-)
|Lane Bryant x Prabal Gurung Spring '17 Collection|
I'm going to let you guys in on a secret...I used to work as a sales associate for Lane Bryant back in the day while in college. Yes, Lane Bryant has come a long way and from this current collection they are going in the right direction. During my days working the sales floor at Lane Bryant, I was told that plus-size girls like to wear black and loose fitting clothes... yes you heard that right! Back than I thought that was bullshit and in today's market it so far from the truth. You see Gabi Gregg slaying it for the curvy girls and other plus-size bloggers and celebrities changing the society norms for plus size women. Now in 2017, Lane Bryant is collaborating with fashion designer Prabal Gurung for it's Spring '17 collection. If you're unaware of who Prabal Gurung is don't be, he's a fashion designer that celebrate the female form and redefining the traditional standard of beauty.
Prabal have said, "I am grateful to the Lane Bryant team for giving us the opportunity to create beautiful clothes that celebrate women who inspire us. Our goal has always been to create a luxury brand with soul, and inclusion is inherent to this ideal.”
