I am a 20 years old West African and Parisian girl. I live in London now but I will spend the next year working in California!
I started blogging a year ago. As a part of my university degree, I took web development classes, and I wanted to see if I could build a website on my own. I also wanted to share my vision of style as a playground, a fun thing to experience with as opposed to something that relies on fixed "rules".
Manigazer started off as a personal style blog, where I would show and discuss my latest outfits with the world as I would with friends. Now, it also covers a very important part of my life: self development. I aim to become the best possible version of myself (in terms of mindset, style and lifestyle), and Manigazer shares my journey towards this goal.
To me, style is a game and fashion is a set of rules for that game, that changes every season. Everyone is free to play by these rules, adopt some of them or ignore them completely.
I also see fashion as something innovative and dynamic that makes us try things we would never have tried otherwise.
Thank you! :)
My ideas come from everywhere, from other people to architecture and design. I usually go for simple, structured pieces with rich materials (velvet, leather, neoprene, etc), as they create a casually chic vibe that I love.
I grew up with in a very elegant family. In particular, my mom is a genuine style maven, so style and fashion were in the picture as far as I can remember!
Lounge Lovers (a fabulous bar in Shoreditch), Spitafields Market and UCL, my uni - it's a little weird but I just loved my time there!
Fun, limitless, creation.
Becoming an IT mastermind? - I'll admit I totally had Nolan from Revenge in mind thinking this. Hahaha, the future will tell!
Thank you for having me :)
