Dencia, Dimeji Alara, Toke Makinwa, Funmi Alaiyemola, Millen Magese and Remi Fagbohun have been having quite the week at the New York Fashion Week.

Dimeji Alara has especially had an exciting experience. Covering the NYFW for Elle SA, Dimeji Alara has mingled with Beyoncé’s stylist Ty Hunter while also getting his face licked by Lady Gaga (yes!).

      Hate is too strong to use on a fellow human like you…try not to hate anyone…I don’t have anyone I hate in my life…I might not like their character, we can disagree but I don’t hate them…

    I wanna see Africa on top and love seeing nigeria making waves.. However, I beg una..please don’t f- up NYFW or the industry for actual African designers & those of us that actually work in the industry. It’s basically the Same way fashion week front rows have been taken over by all the ghetto celebrities…like young thug & the Kartrashian crew… Pretty soon, Anna Wintour will start boycotting the show.. It’s a freak show now ?

    I’m usually supportive of Dencia, but I think she is getting boring and déjà vu in those jump suits. Msheew!!

    Some folks slayed and some just don’t gerrit. I just wish Dencia will come up with her own style instead of looking like Lady Gaga or Nikki Minaj.. Even Gaga have left that dress code alone long time ago. I’m waiting to read comments about Toke cuz I know some folks will sip on hatorade ?

    After seeing Toe next to Millen Magese and considering that tehy’re both wearing heels, I had to google Millen, thinking she’d be 6’2 or something. She’s 5 ‘9, so how short is Toke?!

    a woman must absolutely always look beautiful , gorgeous, elegant, stunning and well put together. No woman should aim to be a freak show inmate. I simply do admire Toke Makinwa. Keep doing you babes!

    I love that guy called DIMEJI, he’s just doing his thing without noise. Toke seems to be having the best of her life right now, she looks stunning (don’t stand too close to a model next time tho)
