There are very people in the fashion industry whose stories are as inspiring as their success. Imran Amed, the editor of Business of Fashion is one of them and he happens to have East African heritage.
This past weekend, I read a well-written article on Mr. Amed at the Fashion and Style Section of New York Times. Here is a man who has managed to make a name for himself in the world of fashion through hardwork and perseverance. I share his story with everyone as a gentle reminder that anything is possible. Your dreams are valid and though the road to success will not be easy, let Imran Amed’s success inspire you to never give up. It won’t happen overnight, but once it happens, your story will serve as a springboard of inspiration to others. I don’t know how many people get to read Isioma’s Style Report, but for the few who do, know that I love what I do here and I will continue my best to be that opinionated voice on luxury fashion and style from an African perspective no matter how long it takes. Until then, I am inspired by Mr. Amed, he is definitely a role model and I hope you are inspired by his story too.
