London Fashion Week 2014 – Love is in the air

Fashion Week season is upon us; New York started off the proceedings on 6th February and is passing on the fashion baton to London on Valentine’s Day.

I’m looking forward to what London has to offer, there are various designers on the roster including model turned men’s shoe designer Armando Carbral (Guinea-Bissau) and one of Fashion’s favourite son’s Tom Ford (United States).

East London’s finest, Nigerian model Betty Adewole was scouted in London at age 17, and the rest they say is ‘history’. Betty was unveiled as the new face of Tom Ford cosmetics earlier this year and booked to model in all four fashion weeks – NYC, London, Milan & Paris! In a recent interview, when compared to Naomi Campbell, Betty responded with true Nigerian confidence by replying, “She’s an amazing model but I’m very different. I’m Betty Adewole.”
