MISS NFF STYLE PERSONALITY: IFY EJIKEME!



Hey ya everyone, It is almost the end of the week…phew!!! (Like I did anything worth resting for) Yes, I had a pretty uneventful week, thanks to the Little Miss lazy attitude I had all week…well there’s no need crying over spilled milk (for the record, sometimes there might be a need!) I guess this weekend, resting is far from my mind…Anyway, this post is none like you’ve read before and I plan to make it a regular feature on my blog.

The ‘Miss NFF style personality’ will be basically short fashion/style related interviews with fashion conscious faces familiar to the Nigerian audience. It will give us a glimpse of their style as individuals.

For the premiere edition, I decided to feature a pioneer reader of the naijafashionfreak blog; IFEOMA EJIKEME. Yes, I decided to be a little biased. She is undeniable fashion conscious(after all she as able to keep her fashion freak mojo on throughout her stay in the BBN house and trust me, being locked up can do some damage to your fashion sense!) Better still, she loves me blog. ENJOY!!!



Use one word to describe your personal style...?

IFY>>>AMAZING!!!!!!

What’s your favourite fashion accessory?

IFY>>>It has to be bags, I can’t go anywhere without my bag.




Any preference? Is it with totes, clutches, or dome bags…what is it exactly?

IFY>>>I don’t think I will be able to pick one…I like to wear all types.


What was the last thing you bought?

IFY>>>A pair of red shoes….hmmnn…the price…I will leave that out!


Are you interested in purchasing red shoes, have a look at what www.net-a-porter has to offer:


Christian Loubotin Rosazissimo feathered shoes £400

Rupert Sanderson Malone patent pumps £310

Jimmy Choo Eliza patent sandals £360




What is the most expensive item in you closet?

IFY>>>That will have to be jewellery!

Fancy expensive jewellery? Here are a few.

-Spessaritite and yellow sapphire ring $4,500







Brow Tahitian Pearl earrings $1,095

Who are your style icons?

IFY>>>My mom, I get into her closet sometimes, Funmi Iyanda's taste in clothes is quite exquisite and also Betty Irabor. Then there is Beyonce and the ultimate style goddess Sarah Jessica Parker!







How often do you shop?

IFY>>>There are no specifics when it comes to shopping. I can’t actually say twice a month or once a week, it depends. I am more like the person who sees something they like, and if it is affordable, I buy.



Who are your favourite designers?

IFY>>>I am a huge fan of Vera Wang; I love Deola Sagoes’ imaginative and creative ability, the softness of Folake Folarins' Tiffany Amber creations and the bling in Jewel by Lisa designs.




Do you patronise the ‘fashion underneath the garments’ in other words, spanks, bodysuits?

IFY>>>I will go the whole nine yards. If it is necessary, I say bring it on!


What is your favourite African fabric?

IFY>>>The kente has been my favorite African fabric for a quite a while now.



If you had the chance to raid someone’s closet, who will it be?

IFY>>>It will have to be Sarah Jessica Parkers; she has access to best of the best and Beyonce Knowles.




Is there an outfit you regret wearing?

IFY>>>Yes! Yes! Yes! There was this particular outfit made for a certain occasion and it happen to turn out all wrong. From the fit, to the cut…and then the zip got busted…it crowned everything!


What will you never be caught dead wearing?

IFY>>>It has to be ELECTRIC GREEN!!!!!!! You will never see me in electric green!


Dolce&Gabanna electric green satin dress.

What fashion rule do you think everyone should abide by?

IFY>>>With fashion, I like to believe that there are no rules…like I said, it is an art, express yourself however you feel like.


I will like to use this opportunity to thank my devoted field agent and Ify for being the darling thats she is! Hugs and kisses.xoxo.

Cool interview! Really inspiring too. You both are undeniably into what's hot in fashion - have you heard of If Looks Could Kill yet? If not, I work for Toyota so here's the rundown: we're super excited to share these thrilling new webisodes that follow an aspiring fashion designer, Bianca, who's involved in international espionage by night! If you're familiar with the BMW shorts from a couple of years ago (Guy Ritchie, Madonna), these webisodes definitely have a similar production level.

Link: http://www.iflookscouldkill.com

Interactive: Toyota has gone one step further, the viewer can interact with Bianca to help her unravel the mystery that has suddenly become her life. I really enjoy the multiple levels; it adds a dimension of reality to the story and builds a unique relationship between the main character and viewer.

Launch party: We just had our official launch party on 6/11 @ Eyebeam in NYC— with performances by Ashanti, Janelle Monae and Anthony Hamilton!

I'd really love your take on the first episode—Haute Pursuit—and discuss more as the other episodes roll-out. Myself, I'm still trying to figure out who the bad guy is—the ex, the boyfriend, the boss? Or maybe it's Nana? lol

Again, would love your take because bloggers like yourself definitely have a good eye about what's cool, hot and current. I would have contacted you via email but I didn't know which the best way to reach you was. I hope I didn't overstep my bounds by directly contacting you.

Don't be shy! :)

Best,
