British Vogue’s New Editor

Gosh diversity is now in fashion and British Vogue has finally give Alexander Shulman the editor of British Vogue the push after 25 years .And its bringing in a new editor of the Cocoa Brown variety. Pic below.

This may not since like a big deal.But for a high end magazine like Vogue which is mainly targeted at British White Upper Class and middle class women .Its amazing.

The fashion world in the west has been accused of white supremacy aka racism for constantly showcasing only women and men of European descent for years now.Whether its USA or Europe.Its constantly ignores the fact that ,people of European descent are minority in the world.

The penny starting to drop especially since the fastest growing economies are in Africa and Asia not the west.If the western fashion industry wants to survive ,they can’t keep ignoring brown and black people. And due to western colonialism more of us wear clothing even western clothing. Are birthday suits just wont do anymore.Yes folks there are still people in Nigeria the land of my ancestry,that don’t wear clothes.

There like my folks before the British came ,with there bible in one hand and a gun in another .We only wore raffa skirt ,leaves etc.And if we were a bit rich ,we would get some cloth from the muslim tribes of Nigeria e.g Hausa,Fulani ,Yoruba who are especially good at weaving cloth. And wrap it around are waist until the corrupt Christian missionaries e.g Irish ,Scots told us to to wear tops ,to cover are bare breast ,so they could flogs us manufactured British cloth .And the cotton was taken from northern Nigeria  at place called Kano processed in Britain the sent back to us and flog back to us.

The British,Dutch,French we forever trying to find new markets for there manufactured goods.And British and Europe jobs depended on it. Theres no point being able to create mass market clothing if not enough people are buying them. I tell you taking people resources making something out of it, then having the cheek to sell it back to them is a piss take.

Back to the topic.The new editor is Edward Enninful ,hes a British Ghanaian ,a former model and stylist. He learnt hes love of fashion from hes mom who is a dressmaker.

I really  hope he actually puts some brown and black models on the cover ,as there was only one black model on the cover of British Vogue Naomi Campbell .Then last year Jourdan Dunn make the cover.British Vogue doesn’t do much of anything but white and rich.Its about time folk realise not everyone in Britain is white or of European descent. Theres are people of African descent like me who are Cocoa Brown and speak with English accent. And I can’t wear leaves or my Birthday suit as Britain is just to cold.

Edward will have ,a uphill struggle as racism aka white supremacy in the British ruling classes is worsen then in the working classes.

Good luck Edward you will need it.

Supermarket Wars

For years now I have been clothes shopping in the supermarket and discount stores Because of how cheap they are and they always seem to have my size.Its amazing the amount of cheap fashionable clothing , you can get in the supermarket.I love Asda,Tesco and Sainsbury supermarkets for beautiful clothing. Here’s some items on my wish list.I just take snaps to reminder myself of what I would like to buy in future.

The first item is this beautiful khaki green dress.I love this dress ,as its lovely and classic looking and Asda sizes go up too size 24.I can always find my size in Asda.

My new equipment for YouTube videos.

I love YouTube but it takes well to much time ,to set up lights, camera , outfit and makeup .Especially when you can’t find anyone to help you film.Blogging so much easier.And there’s not much money in YouTube if you don’t have tons of subscribers and views.But it’s a fun hobby.I started a new fashion YouTube channel.Got a new camera Sony W830 and photography lights .And I am excited again.

I want too do a sewing video  and outfit video for my new channel so watch this space.

Manchester Blogging Scene

Is it just me or is there no blogging scene in Manchester.I joined Manchester Bloggers to meet people who were into blogging .I arrange to meet a girl for a photo shoot ,only to be stood up and the girl ignore my calls.It wouldn’t be so bad, if the girl wasn’t the ADMINISTRATOR OF THE GROUP.But its really annoying.No apologise plus there’s no meet ups for photo shoots.I have ask but don’t get a answer.

I don’t have many friends and it would be nice to meet people who like blogging .Also people who love fashion,food and cycling.BUT IT’S HOPELESSLY.Life only seems to happen if you live in LONDON.In the UK.

Its so strange as BOOHOO and MISSGUIDED some of the most popular high street fashion brands are based in MANCHESTER. But nothing seems to be happening blogging wise in relation to fashion.

The only group that seems like fun is BLACK BRITISH BLOGGERS.The group is very active and I enjoy being in the group.But its for the UK.And meet ups will probably be in London. EYE ROLL.

UK economy is so unbalanced LONDON is the engine and most things happened in London .And the rest of the UK gets left out.This is one of the reasons people voted Brexit ,as a lot of people especially up north are left out.

On of the most popular manchester blogger Intheflow hit it big and moved to London.And that’s the story most of the time.Not much happens up north.I ain’t planning on moving to London and I just hope Manchester changes some time soon.

Body Positive

Being Body positive is so hard in the west. Women are define by there beauty here ,many people especially men wont listen to a women unless is pretty. I have struggle with my body image over the years.I have gain three stone over the years since I was 18 and I aint happy with itiskra-lawrence-634703 years .kim-body

But seeing women like Kim Kardashian and Iskra Lawrence has slowly increase my confidence.I’m trying not to focus on my physical appearance but its damm hard when you go too the shops and can’t fit into an Outfit.

Or you have a wardrobe full of clothes that don’t fit.I currently have four sizes in my wardrobe from size 12 ,14 ,16 ,18.Its depressing

This is when I ‘m doing a pattern cutting class, to learn how to make clothes that truthfully fit me .

I cant wait until the day a women isn’t define by her beauty or dress size.

The Chanel Jacket

The Chanel Jacket is icon it ,design by Coco Mademoiselle herself.But for me it’s just dam annoying.Over the last few years I’ve watched Chanel  fashion show on YouTube .As it’s beautifully film , has amazing imaginative locations and lovely classic music.But one thing that’s getting on my nerves , is that god damm tweed jacket.Its like De Vu every fashion show.Its just getting annoying now.Its needs to be consign to the dustbin or at least the fashion museum .All this holding onto the past like Coco was a god or something.Is just to much.

Its like there never change the design, the tweed is nice but I hate the style of jacket.

Folk let me what you think ,is it time to consign this jacket to the bin ?
