I had the privilege of working with E! Online UK this season to cover the best dressed celebs during the Oscars. The venue was held at the stunning Mondrian Hotel. 
So, If there is ever a time to really go for it, it's at the Oscars. The most glamorous night of the year is the perfect opportunity for Hollywood to show us what they're made of and this year we were far from disappointed. Stars like Reese Witherspoon and Lupita Nyong'o stepped out in gorgeous white gowns, while Rosamund Pike and Dakota Johnson stole the spotlight in head-turning red. Okay, because the Oscars are A Grand Affair, I've chosen the Best Dressed polls: for the main ceremony, and the after parties.

Here's the final reveal of my bespoke suit designed by Stower's London. I was so excited to wear it during the Oscars on Sunday. 
As you all know, I team up with Stower's London to design this stylish double breasted dinner suit with cropped trousers to wear while filming for E! Online UK.

Everything was made from scratch from picking the fit, style, cloth, design. The Stower's personal bespoke experience is a luxury approach to formal menswear. This comprehensive made to measure service perfectly represents the modern effortless stylish man all for a reasonable price. Stowers Bespoke products are hand finished and manufactured in England at their showroom on 13 Savile Row, London, W1S 3NE by appointment only and I had the pleasure in working with one of the most professional team.

Fashion misters, I have a little secret to tell you. . . .

Here's a little preview of my bespoke suit designed by Stower's London that i'll be wearing for the Oscars tonight! I team up with Stower's London to design this stylish double breasted dinner suit with cropped trousers to wear while filming for E! Online UK.

Everything was made from scratch from picking the fit, style, cloth, design. The Stower's personal bespoke experience is a luxury approach to formal menswear. This comprehensive made to measure service perfectly represents the modern effortless stylish man all for a reasonable price. Stowers Bespoke products are hand finished and manufactured in England at their showroom on 13 Savile Row, London, W1S 3NE by appointment only and I had the pleasure in working with one of the most professional team. 

My right hand lady was Claire, the heart of Stowers London, from sizing me up, going through my selections for fabrics, lining, colours to even picking the buttons. I was extremely lucky, Claire has an eye for perfection so making a suit it simply had to be 'Perfect' and it was. What I love about Stowers London is, it doesn’t matter what size, height, body shape they make anything to everything, from dressing sportsman, banker, fashionista they are familiar with every shape and also offers a women bespoke service too. The whole process of bespoke is an experience must be tried. You all know I have suits from off the shops but having a suit made to measure and designed just to fit you is incredibly pleasuring. 


Since I have been in the store countless times, I can vouch for this store - all staff are incredibly hard-working (and I mean - incredibly) and externally kind. Everybody is serious about their work and proud to deliver quality.  I can say that I have not seen one single unsatisfied customer in all the times I have been there. Showers should be a prime definition of what a bespoke store in Savile row are all about. 


 The details of the suit is incredibly great with superb quality and fits perfectly. Looking forward to wearing it tonight. 














All in all a good service than those stuffy old-fashioned tailors in the city. This was probably the best bespoke service I've ever experienced. Would highly recommend to all you.

My Interview with Glamour Magazine

WHAT My interview with Glamour Magazine 
WHEN  19th February 2015 
WHERE  Online


I was invited to Glamour HQ in London to do an interview with the delightful and gorgeous Alessandra Steinherr (Beauty Editor of Glamour Magazine). We laughed, we talked, we kissed and of course spoke about 'AFRO' hair. Alessandra is one of the most down-to-earth person i've actually meet. She welcomed me with open arms and made me at ease. Alessandra has been a beauty journalist for over 16 years and there's one area she always wanted to know about which was 'Afro Hair' so Dark 'n' Lovely challenged Alessandra to become an Afro hair expert in just a few weeks.


All of you know me for my hair styles from an Afro to a High Top but most don't know my hair regime, what products I use and the big question 'How long it takes'.  Check out my interview with Alessandra on Episode 4 below:

Ovadia & Sons hit the catwalk during New York Fashion Week to unveil its fall-winter 2015 menswear collection. Finding a bridge between one of the season’s biggest trends–shearling, and staying true to the brand’s DNA, the collection delivered men’s staples revisited with modern silhouettes and sharp, precise treatments. Embracing a somber color palette, peppered with pops of blue and red, Ovadia & Sons served up a versatile wardrobe. Dressed in plaids, checks and houndstooth, sweaters, coats and scarves were irresistible, especially when treated with graphic gradients. Injected with a ski concept, smart layers made a picture-perfect intersection between casual and formal styles.

Introducing the Unseen


WHAT Introducing the Unseen 
WHEN  18th February 2015 
WHERE  Online

The unseen is an exploration house that blends biological and chemical matter into materials; focused on seeing the unseen by combining science with art, design and performance. 

E I G H T H S E N S E is a coded couture piece, fashioned from materials that are remotely respondent to real-time digital data, through pattern shift, hue and colour change.From greys to blacks, pastels to vibrant rainbows controlled via a digital app built in collaboration with Holition. An unseen force or “Aura” is outwardly emitted from every human as electromagnetic energy, these wavelengths through certain lenses can be seen as colour.

T H E U N S E E N aim to discover and investigate this invisible energy field by using a physical garment that reads human magnetism coupled with the capture of EEG data. These biosignals are translated visually through our sculpture with the use of colour and pattern. For instance red portrays anger, nerves and anxiety, whereas green reflects teaching, sociality and people, Blue reveals calming,truthfulness and peace while white mirror’s an inner state of sensitivity, intuitiveness and psychic ability. 

Supported by the British Fashion Council, as an award from The Technology Strategy Board with thanks to the Trust this piece is in residence at Somerset House within T H E U N S E E N EMPORIUM. Make sure you visit them this weekend during London Fashion Week.
