First of all, let me apologise for going awal on you guys. It has been nonstop on my side hence the little break in regular articles. I mean where do I start. From running from one fashion show to another to putting together my yearly Fashion Industry Insider’s event. But I count it all as blessings as the past couple of months have been productive.
The month of June was easily my busiest month of the year so far with back to back shoots, back to back fashion shows from London Fashion Week to Milan Fashion week via Florence (Pitti). I came back to London to a very hectic schedule which has no signs of slowing down. I mean how did I do it you may ask. At some point, I thought had the strength of Superman. Only if that were true eh.
One thing I know for sure is that I have had a lot of help from my Vitabiotics Wellman range

If you have been checking out my Instagram account over the past couple of weeks then you would have seen that Cape Town was an absolute blast. There were so many things to see and do that we simply couldn’t do them all given the time we had. So it was a tossup between South Africa and Japan for this getaway. I am so happy I went to Cape Town again as Tokyo was at some point a strong favorite. I have not been to Japan before which made it a strong contender but, Cape Town pulled me right back and I am happy I went. Had a great time with friends and made new ones. What could be better eh?
As a fashion and travel content creative, there is one thing that might not be obvious to anyone looking in. Inspiration is so key to everything I do and where I lodge is the bedrock of that. Hilton Double Tree, Cape Town is truly the place to be for any creative or traveling blogger. I couldn’t even overstate (even if I try) how inspired I felt the minute I walked into this hotel. From the décor to the amazing views of the mountain, there was so Continue reading Luxury meets Style | DoubleTree by Hilton, Cape Town | Cuts for Him
The title of this article came to me this morning like a light bulb moment. I was actually doing my morning prayers when the title popped into my head. I almost grabbed my phone to type it in but then remembered that I had made a promise never to use my phone until I have done my daily devotion in the morning. I said to myself if this is the title of this post them I will remember after my devotion.
My trip to South Africa was everything I expected and more. I loved every bit of it albeit the glaring issue of race (which I won’t go into fully here).
As it turns out, Bo Kaap was the first place I visited when I was in Cape Town. I linked up with a friend and his Continue reading The rose that grew from concrete! Bo Kaap, Cape Town
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:
The above shot was taken for a piece I did on identity. The piece itself is called Cultured in Culture and can be found here if you fancy reading it. One of my most personal pieces.
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
