Naijagal readers there is a new fashion line being launched called LSHANDI on July 14th
Here is what the LSHANDI founder had to say:
“I was born and grew up in Nigeria which is where I got my inspiration for my designs. Having always wanted to be individual in everything I did, I have tried to change things up and stand out. I am fascinated by vintage designs and some of creations have vintage influences. L~Shandi designs are a mix of western designs with traditional African fabrics in a way that gives you the freedom to create your own look by integrating them with your existing wardrobe. Wear any of the tops with a pair of jeans or dress it up by wearing it with a dressy bottom. The easiest way to figure out what color to co-ordinate an L~Shandi piece with is by going with the color of the inner lining. “

Hi Naijagal readers! Sorry for being MIA (Missing in action).
I could not have envisioned a better day! I am inspired my dear readers! I will be launching my fashion line soon! I am actually writing a business plan as I blog. Why am I so excited you may ask? because my fellow fashionistas, I met PETER SOM yesterday. He talked about his inspiration for his clothes. We took a picture afterwards. To say I was star struck somewhat was an understatement. If you don’t know much about him well here is a synopsis:
‘Peter Som made his stellar debut at Seventh on Sixth in the Bryant Park tents with his Spring 2001 Collection. Since then, his clean, unfettered yet feminine clothes have been winning accolades from buyers and critics alike. In a 2003 article entitled “This American Moment,” Cathy Horyn of the New York Times identified Peter as “one of the best young designers working today.” In a recent issue of WWD, Jacqui Lividini of Saks Fifth Avenue said, “We’re having one of the best designer seasons in a long timeÉ” citing Peter Som among the top sellers. Peter’s most recent collections have been included in editorial features in major fashion publications, including Vogue, W, Town and Country, Harpers & Queen and InStyle. Reinforcing the Peter Som image of young, luxe, American style, an international Tiffany & Co advertisement earlier this year featured a gown from Peter’s Fall 2003 collection’
Genevieve Magazine Publisher Clarifies Morning Dew Mix-Up Lagos , Nigeria – 13 June 2007 Following the outcry from readers of Genevieve Magazine over an article which seemed to indicate that HIV positive individual should be avoided. Mrs. Betty Irabor today, responded by issuing a statement on the magazine’s website and on various blogs. In her statement Mrs. Irabor states: “I take full responsibility for my words and actions. I am… ultimately accountable for the contents of my publication” Mrs. Irabor regretted that the main moral and message of the article (the lamentable fact that Nigerians appear to be insensitive to the plight of people living with HIV/AIDS and the daily prejudice and discrimination that HIV positive people are subjected to) did not emerge in the final edited printed version. “I had felt that the everyday prejudice faced by people living with HIV/AIDS was an issue” She said. “ I wrote the article to illuminate this issue and it ended up having the opposite effect because of an editorial slip”. Citing deadline pressure she said: “I did not notice the error until the magazine was on the stands. Genevieve readers are unusually smart, well educated and reassuringly sensitive; and it was obvious that they found the article offensive… I’m not pleased that I’ve been the primary cause of that offence. Even more importantly, I have apologized to Yinka Ekpe (the subject of the article) herself and her husband, and they were kind enough to offer me their forgiveness.” Addressing the issue of the outpouring of opinion and the deluge of email from Genevieve readers, she said: “One good outcome of my mistake is the overwhelming response of Genevieve readers and the Nigerian public at large, and the clear message that this response sends: people living with HIV/AIDS have advocates in the Nigerian public who care about their plight and are ready to speak up in their defence. Thank you , Nigeria , for taking notice, for chastising me and for teaching us all how to care again.” Mrs. Betty Irabor is the publisher and editor-in-chief of Genevieve Magazine, Nigeria ’s foremost women’s magazine. Genevieve was first published in february, 2003 and has been acclaimed nationwide as one of the most influential publications in the country. The March 2007 edition featured a cover photo of an HIV positive mother and her HIV negative baby. The controversial current edition of Genevieve features Dr Oby Ezekwesili on the cover and contains a publisher’s note written by Mrs. Irabor about prejudice against HIV positive individuals.
I say please let it be she has apologized! Lets all work together.
