Fashion as a Medium of Self Expression


Fashion has been one of our oldest ways of self expression, and way of life. Every single human can relate to having a fashion instinct influenced by culture, religion, environment, and a persona. From colors we like, textiles, designs, to our pattern of approach and portrayal of ourselves; fashion and humans cannot be separated.
Fashion is birth from within, before it can be exhibited for others to see just like any other form of Art. Each person has a distinct style of expressing his or her fashion instinct; so do fashion creators while creating and showcasing fashion pieces.
An individual’s fashion sense is usually the first impression the world perceives. It is also a way of survival while walking through the sands of time, and it comes and goes with seasons.
Fashion being a way of expression you will need to follow certain structures in order to achieve a perfect fashion expression like feeling comfortable in whatever you are wearing as well as understanding whatever you are wearing.

Hi, can you tell us a bit about yourself and brand?
My name is Teni Oluwo. I’m a graduate of Mass Communications from Bowen University. But I am now, professionally a Fashion Stylist and a Creative Director for my company, Style Territory
How long have you been a stylist?
I have been a Stylist since 2013 but I started my company, Style Territory in 2016 .
Which current trends would you incorporate into your clothing selections?
I’m more of a classic fashion girl , I don’t really do trends but if there’s any trend that comes and goes that I incorporate, it would be Colour Block and clashing prints.
What are the challenges you usually face when dressing and styling clients and how do you address them?
There are many challenges in my field. One I face continuously would be paying an arm and a leg for unique props or accessories, they I know are far cheaper in other countries.

How do you determine a client’s personal style?
I determine a client’s personal style by asking the right questions and also do some research on things they’ve tried in the past. Taking into consideration what worked and what didn’t . Thinking about how you can potentially bring out the best in them.
Where do you think the fashion climate of the country is heading to?
Fashion in Nigeria is promising and evolving as it is gradually gaining global recognition and I have no doubts that if we keep up this pace our creativity would overwhelm mediocrity and we would retain the place and respect we deserve.
How much influence has African fashion brands and style had over the fashion global scene?
The African fashion has served as a great source of inspiration to pop culture for such a long time. Our fabrics, Vibrancy among other things. I am glad we are finally getting the recognition we deserve.

What were your biggest fashion moments of the decade?
This is an ambiguous question. I am not sure if you mean personally or just in the fashion world. One of mine, would be when I was one of the duo that won Best Dressed at the Bling Lagosian movie premiere. It was unexpected and another moment of being fearless that paid off. Generally, I look forward to every MET GALA event.
How have you been able to leverage on technology in order to produce better services to your customers?
Technology offers Social Media. A helpful marketing tool and it also offers countless means of research, which has helped my job tremendously.
From your experience what African fashion brands should the global scene look out for?
There are lots of African brands excelling and preserving authenticity. I definitely love Sgtc Clothing for making such desirable styles in African prints and ensuring it’s super affordable. I also love Mazzelle Studios and Weizdhurm Frankyln for making such delicate and Structured master pieces .
