From Paris With Love : A Denola Grey Story ( Part 1)

Last year ( 2015) was quite fulfilling. Not only did I appear on three different television networks, two of which air all over Africa, this website also turned one. The icing on the cake was when I won two tickets to Paris after participating in an instagram competition by Nigerian Logistics company, ZIppyLogistics. This is not a show-off post, but last year was pretty frickin' sweet.

I decided to choose the dates of Mens Fashion Week in Paris ( Jan 20th- Jan 24th) and I hoped to attend a few shows. Quite an ambitious feat as i got into 0! Save for the London show Rooms opening brunch on Friday the 22nd.Eh, I guess ill get em next time.  I also picked my work twin, Zina Anumudu, to accompany me on the trip. She lived in Paris during her masters and is also a fabulous fashion fiend. Altogether is was a great trip; cold as hell  but exceptionally charming, I wouldn't have traded this experience for anything.A huge thanks to the Zippy Team and Air France and a shoutout to me for winning ! ;)

Im done typing. Ill let the pictures do the rest of the talking. Because of the number of pictures, the Paris story will be a two parter. 

P.S : Due to a rather unfortunate accident  lot of my pictures and videos from my phone were wiped clean, so these are all i could salvage from my trip. :(

Perks Of Being A Wall-Dude

As usual , pay my poor attempt at a titular pun no mind. While I was in Houston for my annual getaway, I had to shoot of course!

My best friend Folabi and our friend from college, Ambika, started a photography partnership. I had the honor of being one of 'Cliques' first few clients. 

I noticed this awesome paint splattered wall during one of my many 'drunk-tional' afternoons. I needed to include this into my shoot, so I put on my double-breasted best, met up with Folabi and Ambika, and we got to shooting!
