Chic Therapy Makes a Hundred

(Picture taken in D.C)
Yay!!Chic Therapy made it to a 100 blog posts.When i started this blog, i had no idea what i would be writing about.I thought i was going to be out of ideas and in no time, delete the blog. Fellow blogger & friend Peep toes adviced me to not to take it too serious but just have fun with it. I did just that and today i am publishing my 100th post ...yipeeeeeee!!Having this creative outlet has been very therapeutic for me and i have enjoyed every minute of it.

Thanks to all the wonderful folks who take time out of their busy day to comment on the posts and many many thanks to those who actually send me mails. Most thanks especially to those who made me start Chic Therapy (you know yourselves). With 11,000 views, 101 followers,2 magazine features & countless blog features it's been a fantastic ride. Here is hoping Chic Therapy makes it to its next 100 posts and even beyond (AMEN).

Mannequinn Magazine Hits the Streets






















Mannequin Magazine, the novel editorial fashion magazine for women has hit the streets of Lagos, bringing with it an edge – one of style, fashion, entertainment and exposure.

Having a strong fashion background from working with reputable fashion giants, the likes of GAP, Topshop, Bank and Republic, in organizing fashion shows as well as its vast experience with stylists and photographers in the industry, Mannequin aims to set a different kind of standard in Nigerian fashion editorials.

With its slogan – ‘Dream It. Change It. Work It’, Mannequin believes in the empowerment and perfection of women with fashion being a major part. The magazine’s intention is to guide readers accordingly, updating them with the latest trends and news, offering inspiration and encouraging growth in almost all spheres of their lives.  Mannequin’s belief is that fashion is not just in the clothes a woman wears but how they are worn, how she carries herself and how she lives.

Mannequin Magazine boasts of being Nigeria's first real fashion magazine and aims to be the ultimate African fashion bible. In order to do this, the magazine comes in a handy size, which fits right into a handbag and comes out monthly.

Having been present in the Nigerian online blogging and web space for over a year, the magazine’s website has a daily traffic of over 230,000 hits.

The first, “Nouveau” issue launched on October 1st, 2010 with Miss Nigeria, Cynthia Omorodion, Studio 53 Extra’s Eku Edewor and female rap artist Mo'Cheddah on the cover. These women are the new power figures in their various fields, modeling, fashion and television and music respectively.  The official launch is billed to take place on the October 10, 2010, (10.10.10) at an exclusive venue in the high-brow area of Victoria Island, Lagos.

Mannequin Magazine costs N700 and is available throughout Lagos with plans of reaching other states in Nigeria within a few months. The web address is www.mannequin-magazine.com

Chic Therapy says:

Being an addict of Nigerian fashion magazines , I was delighted to hear that a new glossy read had hit the streets.I am itching dying to get my hands on a copy of Mannequin. If you live in Nigeria, make sure you grab a copy of Mannequin magazine from your street vendor. I have been on the website and i have have no doubt that the print copy would even be a greater read.Kudos Team Mannequin

Chic Therapy's eyes are on...Betty Adewole

I came across Betty Adewole during a random browsing session and I was immediately interested in her because her last name clearly indicated a tie to Nigeria. This 5.11' British model is of Nigerian descent and lives in Thamesmead, London with her Nigerian Parents. The 19 year old has appeared on major runways and publications and had been noted all over the internet as the rookie to watch out for. Here is hoping Betty has a great career in the fashion industry.
