Before I was a blogger I was interning with a fashion stylist , worked as his project coordinator and assistant . That entailed me creating mood boards for shoot , shopping fashion items and assisting during the shoot itself.
How did you begin designing your VainBlackBoy Collection.Were there specific inspirations or ideas in mind?
Fast forward to 2018 i had been blogging now for about 3years and i have a number of following and and a good audience.
I know what my style is all about now and I wanted to put that out to the world by creating my own pieces for people that love to dress like me and look impeccably stylish , my inspiration was myself I wanted to do more like I still want to do more now!
And I definitely have a lot of ideas in mind of which I’m yet to unveil so many of them .
How did the VainBlackBoy become your signature piece?
This might be a little bit funny , but yeah I have this friend I work with, also in the fashion industry , she’s always complaining about how I love to feel myself way too much and how vain I am.
I used to take it to heart until everyone other person started saying the same thing and I figured oh this is me and I have to embrace this , so I was in the bathroom and I’m like I’m going to change my instagram handle to VainBlackBoy and walaaaaa it came to being and I love it .
