Michelle Dede – the Nigerian freelance television presenter and actress has always been my Style Icon. I have admired her style for as long as I have known her; I remember spotting her presenting Big Brother Nigeria many moons ago, and thinking she was (and still is) the definition of Stylish.
Michelle Dede always looks effortlessly chic. She makes dressing up look fun and easy, like it should be, and that is what I love most about her style. This Style Icon inspires my style goals, and I am not surprised she has such an impeccable style. As a graduate of fashion design and fashion merchandising, I can see where her love for fashion and style comes from.
In an interview with In Her Closet, Dede describes her style as Eclectic, and says her love for fashion became official while studying in London.
My sense of style is eclectic. I dress based on my mood each day, taking inspiration from broad and diverse sources. I’ve always been interested in fashion, as a kid and in my teens in high-school, I experimented mixing and matching my clothes, to the amusement of my parents and older siblings.
I studied fashion design & fashion merchandising in university, so I was surrounded by fashion as well as gravitated towards all things fashion related. London is the home of unique, edgy, unconventional fashion which I love.
I agree, I think London is one of the greatest fashion cities in the world!
She has shared some style tips.
Wear shoes you like, not what’s fashionable or what your friends think you should wear.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour, style is individual, so if you want to wear red shoes with a canary yellow outfit, do it!
I agree with her tips, style is individual.
