What My Early 20’s Taught me

As I turn 24 on Thursday I figured it was time for a little introspection so I came up with what my early 20's taught me as I head into my mid twenties. What My Early 20's Taught me What My Early 20's Taught me In my personal life You are enough - it can be hard [...]


I just want to be tall | cuffed jeans

cuffed jeans     CONFESSION I suffer from delusions of grandeur in many aspects of my life tbh but most notably is my refusal to believe I am a small person, (not irl but) growing up in a family of tall men being 5"5 makes me feel beyond tiny. So in my super frazzled state a few [...]


How to wear a Velvet Suit

 Velvet is one of those fabrics I simply love to wear - sewing it is another thing but I love wearing it. It's so plush and soft and super comfortable so when I saw this velvet suit on the NEXT catwalk a few months back and like all great sartorial romances I just knew I [...]


how I wear white trainers

how to wear white trainers My name is Ngoni and I love a good duster-coat x midi combo, throw in a pair of sneakers and well I'm  sold! I wore this look on day 3567652 of fashion week. Here I'm with some superbabes Natasha Girl in the Lens & Yanin I dress myself,  Calum was lovely enough [...]


there’s something about navy

Confession peeps I am cheating on black with navy and I am not even a little bit ashamed. I'm just really very drawn to navy at the moment I blame this Reiss coat that started it all. During Fashion Week the Apartment makes it sooo easy to get dressed with carefully created pieces from brands [...]


We Are KIN

A Week ago I debuted at Fashion Week. Writing that is still surreal to me! As a young designer or even a creative there are certain moments that take you by surprise, you think of them often but don't ever truly comprehend them. Let's be real showing a collection, starting a brand  etc is something [...]

Investing in your Wardrobe

As a designer I will always extol the virtues of investing in your wardrobe when it comes to timeless pieces, one can build so many great outfits based around some well cut quality pieces believe me, when people see my wardrobe they are pretty suprised by how small it is. Not everyday H&M, Topshop and Zara people, [...]

A Striped Affair

Every so often I fall for something I don't quite feel is me and then once I own it I'm unsure how I ever lived (well sartorially speaking) with out it. Most recently it's this stripey coat from Boden. Do I feel  little like Joseph with his technicolour dream coat? Yes, but a rather chic Joseph-less [...]


these boots

For a while now, a while being at least 4 seasons I've been on the hunt for a sassy faux fur but I just hadn't had any luck. Each one I found was either too bulky, too long, too short or just missing something - clearly I'm Goldilocks when it comes to outerwear! Luckily I [...]


OOTD| Double Breasted Suit

There's just something about a well cut double breasted suit that I simply adore, even better is seeing the boy in one but I digress. I have pretty much always wanted a double breasted suit after wearing this Alberta Ferretti number for a shoot a while ago, so you can imagine just how happy I was when I [...]


OOTD|Statement Flats by Boden

For an avid heel avoider there is something to be said about statement flats. Unless it's date night or I'm getting Uber's or driving everywhere, me in anything higher than an inch is simply not happening.Nope! No Siree, Bob. But #flatslife can get a little boring and blasé I've found statement flats to be the perfect solution [...]
