The world is constantly evolving into a global village and the fashion industry has played a monumental part in that evolution.

To show how the African fashion industry and the culture of fashion in the UK blends together, British Vogue has featured 2 fashionable Nigerian personalities that are prominent members of “London-Lagos Jet Set” club – Temi Otedola and Florence Otedola a.k.a DJ Cuppy.

In their December 2015 issue, the fashion magazine explores the link between the two cultures, featuring the young Nigerians who have grown up living both in London and Lagos in an article in an article titled “African Ties”.

Dressed in fab fashion – Vlisco, Miu Miu, Nura Khan and more, we see the sisters looking amazing with a few quotes for the issue. They talk on living in Lagos & London as well as the Nigerian fashion that they love to wear.

    I think Cuppy represent Nigeria well, and a lot of ppl will come here as usual and spew how they are ‘rich daddys girls’. I don’t think you are created choosing what family you are born into.
    Not every one is going to be a doctor/Engineer/lawyer because people will also say why didnt vogue feature a Nigerian doc/lawyer etc. Vogue is a fashion magazine and these two are young beautiful well educated and rounded girls so I believe they will represent Nigeria well.
    I am yet to hear of any scandal involving any of this two girls.

      I agree that they’re decent girls. I’m not mad at all that they were chosen.

      I agree..

      I also think they are very fashionable and trendy…

      Fashion exists to shock, is mostly weird, and is typically trendy, and resonates with a few people (Think Alexander Mcqueen / Giambattista)…. While style is resonates well with most (Think a classic black dress by Dior or a fitted black suit with white shirt and black tie)

      I wouldn’t consider their style timeless since it is a bit whimsical and edgy… But lets call a spade a spade: those girls love fashion. And i love that they represent Africa well with the twists they do on Ankara, Kente and so many other types of fabrics

      Also, Their clothes could be a little more fitted to avoid the cheap looking vibe i get every time i see what they wear…

    I’ve only heard of these ladies on this blog.
    Not in London. Not on the fashion scene.
    Interesting that Vogue knew them and thought they were worthy enough of such.

      My thoughts exactly. It’s only when I come on Bella Naija that I always see their names. But here in London, they’re not as famous or known as how this blog makes them seem. #imjustsaying

    Well said @ Bey, I could not of put it any better. I love the way DJ Cuppy most time is wearing simple Ankara dress or African print. well done to her, I am a fan.

    Bella continue not posting my comment.I asked for a link,is that too much to ask for?ANYWAYS,Temi looks super cute in the spread.I personally dont fancy her style,but i agree that she has good taste.Cuppy too is really doing good but she looks off in the shoot what’s up with her face?Anyways,this is wonderful exposure that is actually POSITIVE for Nigeria.Even though the poverty level in our country is madly terrible,its still commendable that we have internationally recognized tycoons!

    These girls are always decently dressed, unlike the so called fashionistas whose stock in trade is boobs and ass

    What I love most about them is that they fashionably cover up, all the time.
    I love to leave a lot for the imagination.
    Don’t show all, give people the room to imagine what you really look like and be fashionable at the same time.
