And just like that, 2017 is gone. I can still remember vividly every key moment of my work on Cuts for Him like it just happened. From my trips to the middle east to having a key meeting with one of my favorite grooming brand, Elemis. The sketches I make before a shoot, to waiting for the golden hour to shoot the perfect pictures. Oh, the memories. 2017 was a great year for Cuts for Him. I may need a couple of months to properly label 2017 but I know for sure that it was a key year in the life of Cuts for Him. A year of creative expansion and opened opportunities. Opportunities to work with bigger brands and better creatives.
To help me articulate, here are photos of key work and places I went to in 2017:

Like the first photo, this one just above is a personal one. In fact, it started the Cultured in Culture series. This series looks at being born in one culture but growing up in another. The crossroads these cultures brought into my life. Have a read here.
The above shot was in fact shot in 2016 but only released in 2017. It was a shoot I did exploring 1920 and Continue reading Best of 2017 in picture | Cuts for Him
I have never been to Paris Fashion Week before and now that I have been, the question on my mind is why have I not been before.
Paris and London have always had the sibling rivalry which goes back for centuries. As a Londoner myself, I automatically default to siding with London whenever there is a lighthearted banter about the two cities.
However, if fashion weeks are anything to go by then I can honestly say that Paris got this one. Paris fashion week is bigger, bolder, longer and have more big fashion houses than London. But anyway, I better shut up and allow you guys to enjoy the photos.

When it comes blogging, there are very few things that come close to giving me a buzz like working with other bloggers. I always get super excited at the prospect of working along side people with the same passion and interest as myself. I looking forward to the challenge of having to step up my game sartorially. I also look forward to learning a thing or two from others.
So when fashion and lifestyle blogger Barbara from Out of Barbara’s Box approached me to do a shoot, I was all over it like a cheap suit lol. Yes I truly was. As one of the leading Continue reading The suit you wear to complement a woman’s dress | Cuts for Him
I can honestly say that I have never been this excited about a backpack before. You know how sometimes one does not know they need something until they get it? Yep, that was the feeling I got when I first received my Caxton Sport backpack from Eddie.
I have always been a duffel or messenger/briefcase bag user due to may style of dress. I thought using the above two types of bags was the true essence of the smart or smart-casual Continue reading The backpack that packs a punch | Cuts for Him
