Zinkata'd

Over the weekend I stopped by uber stylist and image consultant; Ezinne Chinkata's new store, Zinkata.



Ezinne has styled some of the most fabulous people in the industry, Omotola and Monalisa Chinda to name a few, and has been Fashion Editor at both Genevieve and Wow magazines.

With such a veteran fashion background I went there expecting to be wowed and I was not disappointed, her store was a delight. The space was super gorgeous and reminded me of one of those vintage stores off Brompton Road, only with better lighting and layout.



I love how she kept the decor very neutral, with the clothes providing the pops of colour.






Her powers of persuasion are so strong she managed to get me out of my comfort zone and into some very Zinkata style outfits.....pictures coming soon.

Her pieces are very unique and not what you'd find on the rack of a typical Lagos store, its very true to her fashion madcap aesthetic while still retaining a very classic vibe. I loved everything and would have carted away a truckload if I did not remember in time that I didn't have a hidden trust fund somewhere to live off on.



I got some truly lovely pieces that I can't wait to show off. I love how the Nigerian fashion retail space is growing, very soon we won't need the international High Street at all! Really looking forward to that day.

    1. Hahaha, they're affordable. There isn't really a price range as she retails from mid-pricing, about 15 or so, to much higher.

  11. Hey, so I read some post today on bellanaija about the cost of getting dressed up for a red carpet event vis stylist, make up, hair etc. people are making money styling people (and I don't think some of the big names are that good sef)I think you should try your hand at styling. You know how to put pieces together to look fab. I think some people just have an innate ability to put things together and look good (I think you do) so try it out.
