September signals epoch-making period of the year in fashion circles. Apart from ushering the Fall season, the month sees the launch of new fragrances, beauty and skin care products from top fashion houses. Also, fashion weeks are rampant in September, even as we face endemic competition amongst fashion editors of top fashion magazines. Talking of fashion weeks, New York Fashion Week 2012 is coming up in few days! The likes of Ozwald Boateng, Maki Oh, Tiffany Amber and a crop of other designers from AMFW 2012 will be featured. Debutante designer Katie Holmes will be showing on the same day with iconic British designer Victoria Beckham! We’ll endeavour to bring you all the gist!

If you recall, in August we featured our model of the month in the person of Cynthia Chisom. She’s one very intelligent, passionate and talented model who pursued her academics with with equal fervour. With four (4) degrees and counting, we couldn’t help but celebrate her sterling achievements! Last night, she tweeted us and we’re really proud of her wherever she is!

Just in case you missed it, you could read the feature on Cynthia here and even our recent interview with celebrity model Menaye Donkor. So as September unfolds, who will be our “Model of The Month”? Time will tell in a couple of days.

For the meantime, enjoy the new fashion season which officially starts today! Don’t forget to visit our e-magazine where our new style and beauty editors will be chipping in the latest scoops and tips on fashion, style and Fall trends! Also remember that #PassionistaHub is still celebrating its anniversary until December 5th, 2012! We’ll be giving out tickets for movies, lunches, cash prizes and even exclusive invites to red carpet events, fashion shows, products launch, etc. All you need do is to follow us on Twitter via @PassionistaHub and “Like” our Facebook page.

Congrats to Funmi Oladimeji, who emerged as our WINNER OF THE MONTH (August)!

For an event that has the backing of world’s biggest cosmetic brand, L’OREAL amongst others, Nigeria’s Next Super Model 2012 will see StyleMania Magazine (Nigeria’s version of VOGUE) sponsor the event, which is undoubtedly Africa’s biggest model search.

Regarding the sponsors, the brief available to us states:

“…going by the major sponsors this year, L’Oreal Paris and sponsorship coming from Nigeria’s answer to Vogue, StyleMania magazine, it has become a thing of joy to see this brand (NNSM) waxing this strong. From watching the girls from this show jet setting the world it was not a surprise to see that the biggest cosmetic company in the world L’Oreal Paris with its mega brands like Dark and Lovely and Maybelline New York have indicated that both brands will be  used to sponsor this show.

Mania has become the magazine that Nigerian models look up to to do their model books. Dimeji Alara, the Editor of the said magazine will be a judge in the house and at the grand finale and of course bringing a wealth of experience to the show. Nigerians will be seeing this show on international and local TV stations.”

With former Miss World 2001, Agbani Darego as the global spokesperson for L’Oreal brand, we hope to have many young female models in Nigeria aspire to the zenith of their respective careers.

As the iconic magazine joins L’ Oreal Paris as a topnotch sponsor, NNSM 2012 is set to be the mother of all models shows in Nigeria this year.

We will keep you posted as more sponsors emerged in subsequent weeks. Also, you could visit this website for more details on the StyleMania magazine deal with NNSM 2012.

N/B: Shortlisted models who participated during the NNSM Screening in June are expected to meet at BEST WESTERN HOTEL, opposite Bar Beach, Victoria Island on 24th August, 2012. Time is 9AM prompt. Models are advised to be punctual.

The Editor,


The month of July was really fraught with multifarious challenges, some of which weren’t tackled (as expected of an assiduous bloke like me). You see, I pointed this out sometime in May when we launched our magazine, that every new month comes with its “seething challenges” (those were the exact words I used). Indeed, July wasn’t an exception. We battled to meet certain deadlines, attended events, responded to countless emails, having series of meetings, and of course, publishing fashion posts for other sites.

As July ends quietly, I think there’s a need to celebrate the GIFT OF LIFE. As July ends quietly, I’m hoping all July-related “stress” and trouble end as well! Is this really a wish? You all know for those of us in fashion circles, stress and trouble aren’t strange bedfellows. They sleep, wake, walk and work together. So, it’s ridiculous for me asking them to “end”.

As July ends quietly… Let me stop here!

On a final note, as August berths, I’m wishing you all a fulfilled new month. Keep on visiting our online fashion magazine. We have a lot in store for you guys especially as the momentum of AFWL 2012 builds up this week. Also, in the forthcoming new month, watch out for our “Model of the Month”, NNSM 2012 updates, Brian Atwood 2012 Collection, scintillating summer trends for men, Raf Simons, lookbooks from across Africa, our anniversary giveaways and interviews with top fashion personalities and fashionpreneurs.

Don’t miss out our updates next month!

Catch fun (if you can)…
