Fashion Mavericks

My friend Jacqueline Adholla runs the event Fashion Mavericks which takes place every season during London Fashion Week with the aim of providing a platform to new and independent designers.

Since the debut event in February 2010 Fashion Mavericks has hosted over 25 designers during London Fashion Week to an audience of buyers, press, stylists and keen fashion enthusiasts.

I attended the FM show during London Fahsion Week in February and I remember it was the first time I saw designs by Kiki Kamanu, I was totally blown away. Loved them.

Designs by Kiki Kamanu during LFW February 2011

I also met stylist extraordinaire and a profashional in every sense of the word, the formidable Omoyemi Akerele of Style House Files

She was wearing the sickest trench with beading and Ankara details, I think she said it was by Lanre Da Silva, I forget. Somebody please enlighten me if you have any ideas.

February's Fashion Mavericks was an amazing event and this September's wasn't any different. All the creatives and fabulous people were out in full force.

My favourite this year was Anna Grzegorczyk, she was working a lot of natural, earthy tones, free flowing fabrics, very high priestess/earth mother chic. Love!


Ran into Yoanna Pepper Okwesa, FAB Magazine Style Editor, fashion stylist and owner of the vintage store Retrospective

Sinem Bilem Onabanjo, Editor-in-Chief of FAB Magazine was also there

Sinem and Yoanna

Kiki Kamanu, who was also showing at Day 2 of Fashion Mavericks

Some of her designs

Loved her neck candy, I'd definitely wear that

Elaine Edozien, a make-up artist

In the words of ONB, Elaine's jacket from was giving me oxygen, the sleeve detail was beautiful

And this precocious 9 yr old fashionista in the making. Homegirl was rocking a tweed short pants suit with a printed tee, he blazer even had elbow patches and she had model off-duty cool down pat. The child was fascinating. She even sat in the front row, amazeballs.

The proprietor of Fashion Mavericks, Jackie Adholla.
