The Londonites may know Ufuoma from their Next Top Model Show and she certainly represented cause she’s a BGKI!!! Read what she says about her style…
What inspires you to blog?
Its like my online diary of thoughts and pictures, a capsule of what i find amusing, entertaining in that month that moment and then i can go back over it whenever i feel like it.
How would you define your personal style?
I would say it’s quite sexy n colourful I tend to buy tight well fitted clothes because it’s what i feel most comfortable in, if its not tight then its very short…most of the times it’s both tight and short.
Do you find that you follow fashion trends, or do you play by your own rules?
Certain things will always be in fashion to me regardless of what’s new etc and then other things I may try once or twice just because I’ve seen it and liked it. I dont really go for expensive things though which can make it a tad hard to follow fashion when all your looking for is cheap bargains.
Items to get, what are you searching for right now?
- Another fur leopard print jacket but long and with a hood
- A replica of a bracelet I own but in a different colour
- Another black blazer cos the last one got ripped up :(
Are there any colors you tend to shy away from, and if so why?
Black because its boring and doesn’t compliment my skin tone like other colours
When you hear the term “Black Girl Killing It” what comes to mind?
Hot black girls ;)
As a child were you always into clothes or did you grow into your own fashion sense?
Defo grew into my own fashion sense, I didn’t even know properly about vintage until I got to uni and found the stores and attended the vintage fairs.
Do you participate in your local fashion scene?
Don’t even know what this question means so I probably don’t but I do model full-time.
How does your day to day life factor into your wardrobe choices?
I ditched law not only cos I hate it but never really wanted to own more than two suits.
What is your greatest fashion pet peeve?
People who try and claim they are the originator of all things fashionable…they should just chill
Have you ever tried your hand at design or sewing?
I sew buttons back on and the only thing I designed is my 21st bday dress which was just a leotard n tutu so dunno if u can call that a design…and my last carnage tshirt, ripped it in half and wore it as a bandeu…skills lol
Are there any designers that you like to wear or whose clothing stands out with you?
Ksubi, simone rocha (at times)
Who are your style icons?
Whoever i fancy in the moment…it could even be the girl at the bustop
Your five must-haves as a girl:
- levi denim shorts
- colourful vest
