I kid you not when I say that London Fashion Week Men’s was not on the list of events I wanted to attend this summer. Having hosted Cuts for Him’s first Fashion Industry Insiders Event a couple of weeks before, I was on the road to recuperating and getting some much needed rest. As you can imagine, Hosting a event which caters for about 200 people was hard work to say the least. So I was perfectly ok with me missing LFWM SS18 and any other event happening around that time.
That was the plan until I spoke to a couple of friends from the blogging world who really and truly got me back into the swing of all things LFWM. All they had to do was mention the Mr Porter Summer Social and I was in. I mean completely in. The truth is that because I had barred myself from all events relating to LFWM, I had completely forgotten about one of my favourite events in the summer calendar, Mr Porter.
So the team and I created this styling piece a few months ago. If i am honest, this video is one of my favourite for many reasons. However, I found myself holding back from sharing it with you some strange reason. I kind of felt like I needed to add something to the video not because it lacks something but to enhance what it is truly about.
The funny thing is that I couldn’t put put my finger on what I needed to add. It was only a few weeks ago that it donned on me that I should add a voiceover to the video. Yes thats it, a voiceover would enhance what I am trying to relay in the video. The only trouble now is that I have never done a voiceover before and this kind of petrified me. My fear was that it may not sound organic enough given that the video was created months ago and I am only now adding a voice to it. With a bit of encouragement from people around, I thought to myself I don’t need to be a Morgan Freeman or even a Sir David Attenborough to do this lol. So here is my first take on voiceovers.
So basically I had the pleasure of attending the first annual no resolution party by Scalpers at their Carnaby street flagship store last week. As a blogger, I regularly get invites to launch parties so much so that I almost overlooked this one.
In episode 4 of INDUSTRY INSIDERS, Cuts for Him caught up with stylist and pastor, Emmanuel Apiafi where we spoke about his favourite accessories and many more things. Watch the video and let me know what you think.
