Fierce,

It’s January and it is the perfect month to start your 2020 with a bang. The best way to do it? Wear something sparkly to be at your most extra kind of look. For me, I always love wearing something bold and interesting outfits for my daily meetings and errands.

I want to keep my brand DNA strong and yet tastefully appealing. How to do it? When you pair a printed top wear something neutral and plain for your bottom. A good shoe will complement the look and a chic handbag to complete the whole look. When you wear a sequins top and bottom always make sure that your hair and make-up are simple and classy. Make you look on point by layering it carefully with the right accessory. For this look, I chose something edgy to make the editorial look strong and fierce.

I am wearing & Other Stories and what I love about the brand is that they always showcase curated pieces that are good for someone who is on a budget and yet wants to wear something special.

Fierce,

We were brought up to believe and understand that it is important to accept people as they are. That’s an upstanding principle to live by. And truthfully, life would be far more tolerable if we all applied this principle daily. If we could have a moment of honesty here, we just aren’t entirely capable of accepting everything that comes with a person. How I wish every person has a sneak preview to think if they deserve to get to know us or be part of our life.
You need to remember your values and what you believe in life.

It’s a matter of choice. Whether you will let things happen or you will control it not to happen. But most of the time fate doesn’t give us that power. Ethically speaking, we should always practice tolerance for fellow humans.


The past few weeks I’ve been thinking of unfollowing a lot of people on Instagram most especially in this wild city. Not because I don’t like them but it’s just that I don’t want to associate myself with people who have nothing to deal with me. I just want to unfollow them for me to breathe on my page and have my stand in everything that I believe in life. On a side note, it might affect some things and some people around me, but for me, I just want to take that risk and just move forward in life without thinking that someone is watching my stories and yet they couldn’t support me or do me a favor.

For me, You shouldn’t accept anything that causes you harm. most especially if it’s draining you so much. It’s okay to decide that you don’t want to deal with certain aspects that come with people.

“Accept my flaws and all,” is a common statement, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to do it. If the flaw presents itself as something that may be a deal-breaker for you, break the deal.

No one owes you anything so always keep in mind the same for yourself. You’re not in the wrong for being intolerant to anything less than what you deserve. And you deserve the world. Soon you will all know the reason behind this post and I am telling you that you will love every bit of that story.

Fierce,

Let me share with you the designer I am eyeing right now with her delicate taste, attention to details pieces and a master of colour swatches. It’s my good friend from Georgia, Tako Mekvabidze. She was known already in her home town as the go-to designer of the Elite people in the industry and now as she makes her mark on the international stage, just recently Kendall Jenner wore her Electric Green Oversized shirt as she walks the streets of Beverly Hills, California.

Last August 29, She has showcased her Cruise 2020 Collection in a big plaza of Batumi, Georgia. Where she showed pieces that were inspired by the sea and nature.
She used Delicate organza fabrics, natural garments, denim, straw hats, net bags in light shades of blue, pink and lemon yellow. She basically wants to show her childhood memories through this collection. She invited international press and media to showcase her passion and love for her craft in cooperation with the Tourism board of Batumi.

This show also aims to promote the beauty and uniqueness of Batumi to the world.

Opening their city to the world using fashion is such a great move. I admire Tako for being true to herself and craft most especially with her staff. I visited her showroom and I can see the genuine smile of her staff. Their passion shows how Tako treats them like a family. The trip to Batumi was very refreshing for me as it opens up my eyes on how Georgian’s love for their country and their hospitable attitude shows towards their guest.

I truly appreciate Tako Mekvabidze as a designer and a new friend where it gives me a warm feeling knowing a designer like Tako Mekvabidze is not just a designer but a true artist with a heart.

Fierce,

In life, you need to teach the world who you are. Most especially now as we enter a new era, you need to fight back in whatever life throws at you. Sometimes, you won’t get the credit you feel like you deserve. Sometimes, you’re going to feel like all the hard work you’ve been putting into a project has been a waste because nobody has been around to pat you on the back or remind you what a good job you’ve been doing.

Sometimes, your confidence is going to crash. Sometimes, you’re going to doubt your own abilities. Sometimes, you’re going to flirt with the idea of giving up.

It doesn’t matter as long as your values and beliefs are intact and strong. You don’t need validation from anyone else to feel proud of yourself. ( You should be proud of every scar, battles, and accomplishments) Stop waiting around for other people to realize your value and start rewarding yourself. When you accomplish one of your goals, reward yourself with a bottle of wine or freshly baked cookies or your favorite latte from Starbucks. Make sure that, even if the rest of the world can’t see what a good job you’ve been doing, you recognize it yourself.

You have to stay passionate, stay motivated, stay inspired, stay strong.

You have to remind yourself you can do this.

Do it for yourself! Stay Fierce!

Fierce,

I’ve sat on the floor of my bedroom and wondered why I’m not where I want to be in life. I’ve questioned my purpose. I’ve wondered how I’ll ever make it, how I’ll ever be what I dream to be, how I’ll ever survive. I’ve been there. Whenever I travel in Europe my heart skips a beat as the cold breeze touches my skin. I knew deep down my heart I want to stay…

I want to stay….. To find myself, my purpose and my inner strength as I go on with my journey in life.

I know you have too.

You’re probably sitting there right now doubting the journey you’re on, wondering if it’s even the right one or whether the sacrifices you’re making in life to get where you want to be are worth it.

For me, just stop worrying about failing or making mistakes. Start focusing on what it will feel like to know you could have tried and succeeded but didn’t.

As cliché as it sounds, when you stop worrying about what you can’t control, you have time to change the things you can control, and that makes a world of a difference.

Sometimes we are so focused on the transgressions of yesterday or the worries of tomorrow that we don’t stop to focus on the beauty that is today. If we are always looking ahead or looking back, we will never see what we have right beside us. It’s necessary to let yourself live just one day at a time – just today. Just right here, right now.

On your hardest days, when you feel like you can’t continue, remember that you’ve already made it through 100% of your hard days and you’re likely to make it through this one too.

Fierce,

For me, my work is 100 percent reflects my creative vision, sense of direction, personal style, artistic approach, and my identity.
I feel the need to ALWAYS create a strong visual impact with my work to mirror the impact of the issues I always face in the Middle East. I rarely create a project that is shallow or doesn’t have a deeper meaning — that doesn’t represent my representation. I felt like it’s always about my identity and how I face things in life in a fierce manner.

I always want to represent a different part of modern-day life to people like me. That in this life, there’s a place for love, for work and your passion. At the end of the day, I always tell to people that “ It wasn’t a mistake to pursue your dreams, so dream big!”

Whenever I create something or do a project whether personal work or commercial I always look on a different perspective to approach a certain topic on how I understand it. It is always hard to pursue something for marginalized people like me, I always need to go beyond the expectation of others and the way I do my work. I can say that I am selective about the projects I choose to accept but it’s because I want to align myself on brands and companies that are aligned with my values and beliefs no matter what.

Outfit by & Other Stories

“For me carving out my niche has been beneficial because brands and clients approach me already know exactly what I’m about to give and tend to view the project from the same perspective as me”

Representation matters a lot since it gives a voice to marginalized people and for me, that should always be the case. Having different opinions and voice will make something more relatable and authentic to people.

Fierce,

The boyhood dreams theme of the Celine Menswear Spring 2020 is a breath of fresh air from all the collections this season.

High-Waisted flares, tailored suits, and leather jackets are the hippie pieces that I love from the whole collection.

I also love the tiny bomber jackets and boot-cut pants so much! Since during Summertime, I usually travel to Milan and I often want something comfortable yet edgy whenever I have to tend to meetings. The whole vintage vibe is in full swing for Spring 2020 and they’ve elevated it to the next level at Celine.

Here are my top picks:

Fierce,

It’s the 10th Anniversary special of and I am so happy to share with you, my take on the fabulous collection of Simon Porte. The stunning collection that was showcased in the South of France in lavender fields whilst taking the experience of the word ‘Extra’, to a whole new level.

The colour palette for the collection is giving me that fresh and show-stopping vibe for Summer in 2020!

The Pink trousers and coats are giving me so much life for the ladies who strutted the pink runway.

Also, If one is to talk about Jacquemus, those instagrammable small bags are here to slay the Summer with such a different twist. It looks like they are showing a painting within a painting in the field.

I would definitely grab one of the big hats, especially the pink one as it’s giving me that Pink Panther kind of energy.

The looks are so sophisticated and light, perfect for a cocktail party in summer…

Here are my top picks:

 

My Favourite!

we Slay in Jacquemus!

 

Fierce,

Keep it cool and edgy with Raf Simons latest Menswear Spring 2020 Collection, red gloves pair with beige inner, orange gloves with a checkered top, lavender shorts with leather shoes is a juxtaposition of elements with lazy kind of look makes it more interesting.

For me, If I just wanna have to wear something for a lazy breakfast hangout with friends I’ll go with Raf’s latest collection as it is too casual in a way that colours play a vital role to keep the look interesting. Boxy shirts with distressed pants are what I need for a casual party. As it looks very simple and yet edgy cool.

Here are my top picks:

 

Fierce,

An interesting twist to your usual casual, Valentino Menswear Spring 2020 Collection is here to teach you how it should be done with right classic accessories. Leopard print sunglasses, camouflage print in blue and brown, pink coats and beige tops will definitely make your Summer look a picture perfect that needs a tap of likes.

What I find so interesting in this collection is that it gives me a feeling of a summer camp in the southern part of France. That chill and yet non-conventional summer look is what I need to see for guys nowadays. I find it interesting when a man knows how to carry a printed top with tailored pants. Valentino is one of my favorite collection this season.

Here are my top picks:
