Photography has really exploded in Nigeria!
With all the new photo studios offering professional services and the wonderful photographers we all see on shutterchance, photography among Nigerians is no longer child’s play.
My favourite photographer is Toyin ‘T.Y’ Bello nee Sokefun
She is a multi-talented young lady who was part of the group, KUSH (remember, Angels and Lets Live Together?), she also studied economics at the University of Lagos.
T.Y is one of Nigeria’s foremost photographers and is part of the prestigious 'Depth of Field' Collective

I luv her work plus she's so down-to-earth...
I also luv her bohemian style...uber fab!

Here is some of T.Y’s work and a Studio 53 feature on her.

We have so many beaches in Africa but we hardly hear anything about beachwear and swimwear.
I personally LUV the beach.
When in Lagos, my saturdays are ideally spent speeding off some isolated beach in the middle of nowhere. If u havent done this yet, do not let this xmas go by without going to the beach (I am not talking about Lekki, Alpha or Bar beach lol, try something different)

Anyway, swimwear is actually big business in the fashion industry.
For now we do not have any Nigerian designers that focus on this niche but here are some African designers doing it big in swimwear and beachwear. ENJOY.

Tracy B Swimwear

Amanda Laird Cherry Swimwear

Black Coffee Swimwear

Colleen Eitzen Swimwear

JBS Swimwear

Stoned Cherrie Swimwear

Sun Goddess Swimwear

So, what do you think? Hot or Not?
Will it be a good idea for a Nigerian designer to start making swimwear?
Any fun beach stories? Let us know...

Have a great week!!!!!!
