Fashion and Sleepless Nights

Hi everyone

It’s been a fashion filled few weeks and sleepless nights! I took part in a photo shoot as the Face of Printex to promote the brand, and the colours and prints are just so summery. The photos will be coming out soon but I wanted to give you guys a sneak preview of what they are looking like.

I started working with Printex earlier this month as they are launching two new amazing fabric ranges, Arete and Xclusive–I really do love them both for many reasons. Printex always offers great colours and a blend which a lot of women can relate to as the colourful prints make you feel good when you wear them. I grew up knowing Printex. My grandma wore Printex and my mum still wears Printex, and it is a fabric with class. It’s an exciting fashion brand to represent as they really understands the African woman.

I flew back to Milan immediately after my shoot with Printex to support my husband who has suffered a freak injury whilst playing football with his mates. It was one of the emotional moments of my life because it all happened so quickly, and I have learnt to value time because you just never know!!! I’m just trying to be here for him at the moment and take care of him whilst he recovers from surgery. I haven’t had much sleep but am thankful for how well he is recovering and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s back playing again sooner than what the doctor’s indicated. Thanks to everyone who has sent him and myself kind messages of support.

So, now being back in Milan, I spent Tuesday morning at the DSquared2 Spring/Summer 2012 men’s collection fashion show supporting my close friends the designers. I met Dean and Dan Caten a few years back and they are like brothers to me. Their shows are always creative yet entertaining and this particular one was no exception! They always know how to go the extra mile and produce shows outside the norm. There was color, bling, rock, sex appeal and masculinity! A very “over the top” collection but again its Dean and Dan, and they made it work–I love that about them!
