Welcome to the second half of 2016. I pray that you have a blessed year, one where God will enlarge your territory, whatever it maybe. I took a break from everything, because I simply needed it. For far too long, I have been very automated, thinking that I needed to do so much to be successful. I am finally learning that it’s the little things that matter, particularly the things we love, like our family, food, laughter, and for me jewelry making.
I have been down this road, not once or twice and so I will keep it all simple. My goal in life now is to start something that matters with African Fashion and Style. Profit is great and my prayer for African fashion and style is that we become as profitable as the global fashion industry. But maybe that’s not our calling. Maybe for us to be successful, our business model should be one that puts our people first, instead of profits. By people, I am referring to that breadseller turned fashion model, whose life story is one full of inspiration. Or that secondary school girl in need of advice on what to do next, now that school is out and a university education seems completely out of reach. These are the people that should matter as we move African Fashion and Style to the next heights. Truth is the better people feel about our fashion, the better they just might support.
So for Isiomastylereport as we continue through the rest of 2016, we are focused on African fashion and style that matter. I remain passionate about creating a platform that celebrates the core people transforming African fashion and style. Those with an idea, a story to tell, those who inspire and uplift our people and everyone else they come across. I cannot promise anything, except to remain the voice of African fashion and style that matters.
