To that regard, here are some interesting things you should know about the amazing media expert:

Vanessa Kingori is one of the leading personalities in the global publishing and fashion industry. A former fashion manager at Esquire Magazine, Vanessa was recently appointed the publishing director of the most commercially successful magazine in the United Kingdom.

The Kenyan born studied Management and sociology at Royal Holloway University of London. However, Vanessa went into modeling for a few years before she eventually found a niche in the media world.

According to Vanessa, she joined media after her friend advised her to, knowing she had a natural flair for it. “I wasn’t aware of the vast amount of roles in Publishing that exist outside of the editorial side. While working in events a friend saw how I connected with clients and suggested I consider the commercial side of media,” she said.

Currently, Vanessa is widely known as a trailblazer; she was the first female publisher of GQ Style and British GQ, and the youngest, first female, and first black publisher of any magazine under Condé Nast UK publications. While at GQ Style and British GQ, she oversaw the highest total annual revenue for the brand in the last decade.

In recognition of her stellar career, Vanessa was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2016. She is also a member of the Mayor of London’s “Brexit Expert Advisory Panel”.

Asides highlighting global fashion trends at the GTBank Fashion Weekend Masterclass, Vanessa will also discuss how to break the barriers facing Men’s fashion.

Fashion lovers in the Lagos have something to look forward to, as fast rising and dynamic duo of Benjamin Chinedu Okoye and Benedict Chigozie Okoye debut their new collection ‘B.O.B Elite Wear’.

Elite wear is a simple yet casual touch of brilliance; it is made up entirely of Cashmere, which is more stronger than wool and absorbs in less heat than cotton, hence can be worn for all occasions, both summer and cool seasons as well. Making it the perfect fashion item as it fits the constant change of the Lagos weather.

Its intricate weaving makes it appealing to the older generation who are not into outlandish designs, and the vibrant coloursin which they are made in seem to be a pull for the young and young at heart all together.

In all, the B.O.B Elite collections definitely seem to be incapable of doing any wrong, from walking the red carpets, attending an evening gala, a Sunday service or simply deciding to go with a casual outfit while looking elegant.

The B.O.B elite wear seem to tick all those marks.

With patronage from high ranking A list celebrities like E-money. Kcee , Alex Ekubo, Innocent Idibia (2 baba) among several others.

The B.O.B crew seem to be riding on from the success of their Stone Crested and Petal collections and just recently, from their debut of the B.O.B Suede Jacket.

All this seems to have been geared towards the making of one elegant and yet simple outfit desired to meet the need of every lover of elegance and will no doubt find its way into the wardrobes of every fashion enthusiast and lover of looking good.
