Dressing has come a long way than wearing trendy stuffs or the popular brands. When you dress according to trend, then you are in fashion. And no matter how fashionable you are, when you turn up in public, you don’t leave a lasting impression with what you are wearing.  So if you want your style of dressing to be more than what is trending and common to everyone, these are the four clues you need.
1. Dressing is freedom: What society doesn’t want to see is a naked person, so sometimes you need to break the rules to come out of the ordinary everyday fashion. Besides, laws are made by people and can be changed as well by people.
2. No one is a judge: If you are turning up for an event or going out. The people you see are not judges to give a verdict on how you are looking. So clear your conscience of what people may say and rock your style in confidence. That’s the only way to be more trendy.
3.Take the risk: We live in a society and thereof whatever we do arouses people views. And since your style of dressing will not conform the everyday fashion, be prepared for any reactions you face from others. Not saying that the reactions are going to be negative, but for the want of trending than what’s trending, you must be a risk taker.
4. Consistency: Don’t be a loser who quits before the race is done. If you want trending with your style, you need to be persistent in creating that mark. Sometimes it’s works the eleventh time.

We are in an era where social media has made a lot of young women try to claim a certain position in the society by showing off with their lavish lifestyle.
These young women dress to look expensive depending on men or through other foul means.
With these young women on one side, on the other side, there are the TV personalities, actresses and female musicians who are also claiming the same title with these young women on social media.
The title being a “slay queen” has been become a battle. But let’s us now identify the real slay queens.

By the definition of slay queen according to the definition in the urban dictionary, it’s states as “young and naive girls who apparently do not date broke men. They spend hours on snap chat and Instagram showing off things they don’t even own.” or “Girls who do not have a wealthy background but appear as if they do. They use malicious acts to attain cash, drink expensive alcohol, procure expensive cellphones. But back at home she’s a chicken chaser”.

So per the definition, can you now tell who a slay queen is?
And how then should those who slay hard but don’t fit the definition be called?
Leave your answer in the comment box.

Creativity as defined by oxford is the use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness. The art of turning new, original and imaginative ideas into reality.

Creativity in Africa is characterized by the ability to perceive our continent, Africa in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions. Creativity has given birth to two processes: thinking, then producing.

Creativity is the backbone being Africa fashion, because it comes with people daring to mix prints, colours, taking style risk and bringing “out of the box ideas” into existence and now it’s become a way of life to many African relatives.

The role of creativity can never be overemphasized in Africa’s fashion and in Africa as a whole.
Creativity is found everywhere but mainly from inspiration, as an artist inspiration can be gotten from almost everything. Stay woke!

In today’s society, modelling has become a catalyst, as it now encourages change in the fashion system and industry.
Models are the face behind the brand. The women who walk the runway have the power to inspire editors, buyers, and fashion lovers to covet a particular piece.

Throughout history, they have defined and defied typical beauty standards, set new precedents, and popularized trends. In today’s world, the model has a greater voice and presence than ever. As street style icon, role model, and activist, she has the power to challenge conventions and connect to social media audiences on a massive scale.

Much as fashion modelling involves using models to show off a particular type of fashion and art, Models are also meant to be more artistic since they represent the art work(modeling). It should show in their expressions, communications, looks, skills. A model should be creative and express herself through certain skills like painting, music (playing the guitar, piano, pan pipes etc), drawing and sketching, just to name a few and these become unique skills found in models.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE MODELS WHO CHANGED FASHION INDUSTRY:

Imam
Dovima
Twiggy
Cindy Crawford
Carla bruni
Kate Moss
Ajak Deng
Alek Wek
Naomi Campbell, just to name a few.
