FOCUS ON WHY YOU STARTED BLOGGING__URBANEHANGER

Happy New year FAM, going through his blog and instagram Profile last year, I was just convinced he had to be the first feature blog post for 2015, his style and ability to portray Lagos in such beautiful and captivating colors and style paints a picture of how creative and determined people living in this region are... lets meet

FROM YOUR BLOG YOUR PERSPECTIVE OF FASHION AND CREATIVITY IS DIFFERENT, HOW DO YOU SEE FASHION?
Fashion to me is about expressing my identity, showing who I am through my fashion choices. Thus, clothing is not just about comfort for me. It’s about expressing myself.

HOW HAS YOUR REGION SHAPEED YOUR CONCEPTION OF FASHION
When thinking of the major fashion cities of the world, Lagos, Nigeria is fairly far down on the list. But having people of different cultures living in one urban or area kind of influences and creates platform for my personal development as a person who appreciates fashion.

WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOUR INSPIRATIONS FROM

I find inspirations everywhere from the street, friends, internet, etc. I basically find inspiration in the simplest things.

WHAT ARE A FEW TRICKS YOU'VE LEARNT FROM BEING A BLOGGER
Focus on why you started blogging in the first place Not the "followers". The first few months of blogging, I was already focusing on statistics and massive blog readers. so I started commenting on different popular blogs with my blog url at the end of every comment. But unfortunately, that didn't work so I decided to focus on what really makes me happy and the rest followed :)
WHAT ARE THE FEW THINGS YOU'VE NOTICED THAT DOSEN'T SIT WELL WITH YOU IN THE BLOGSOSPHERE
well, I actually feel that everyone should have a blog because we all have different perspective on life, fashion, etc. But the over-saturation of the blogosphere makes it hard to find genuine voices. I'm not complaining though, because I don't have the power to change  that... Haha

YOUR FAVORITE WARDROBE PIECE
A well-tailored suit
ADVICE TO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO FOLLOW IN YOUR STEP
This may sound cliche pays to be yourself, so stay true to yourself and your voice.

WHAT MAJOR BIG DECISION HAVE YOU TAKEN TO BE WHEE YOU ARE TODAY
I'm not a superstar yet.. Hmm, that would be.. Self-acceptance.

YOUR NEW YEAR GOALS
Blogging goals? I want to be able to tell (visual) stories worth sharing. I believe that any outfit of the day (OOTD) picture is as good the stories we tell with it.
