Fashion illustration initially were drawings used only to visualize the concept of designers. Prior to this point never would I have imagined that other things could be done with it, asides gifting it as a framed picture.
When it comes to giving gift cards in Nigeria…most especially to my significant other .. Wow! I rack my brain for days endlessly. Social media has not made it any easier, with the stunts people pull (guys in most cases), you begin to wonder if you are indeed living or just merely existing. Instagram stories and twitter bloggers, not necessarily the gift givers, but the unpaid hype men.
Natural hair growth seems to be a bold step most Nigerian ladies are beginning to adhere to. It is so amazing how like wild fire it has spread, and the popular faces seem to be leading the charge. Yes I’m a dude, but nothing speaks natural beauty more like a lady who grooms and wears her natural hair.

Her name is Chidinma Akobundu, I bet you can’t wait now. Let’s meet her..

Taeillo is on a mission to rebrand culture through design. I once read a quote by Taeillo, “Nobody is interested in our culture because we have not made it appealing”. This statement I believe is generational. We certainly have a lost culture. Especially this generation. I’m not even sure what to expect of generations after this.
Part of which is what Bellafricana is restoring, just as Taeillo says… the only way we can change this is to “Brand our culture positively and use it as a tool of influence”. And I couldn’t agree more.. Welcome to the Modern Africa.
A piece of Taeillo in your space speaks volume and leaves a renewed piece of a lost culture.
