In Her Closet – Episode 11 – Style By Yummie
First time I heard anything about Yummie was on “Wardrobe Diaries”, a TV show that features fashion forward people. Watching the interview, the first thing that struck me was her unconventional, eccentric style.
You know those people that only them can own their style? Yes, she’s one of those people.
Then I got to know she’s a stylist and off I was to Instagram to see more on her page. I was taken.
The job of a good stylist is one I respect a lot. It’s one thing to be able to put pieces together. But putting pieces together to fit a personality and the occasion perfectly is another ball game entirely. And when your clients keep coming back, then you are a winner.
Yummie Ogbebor is Stylist to Rita Dominic, Stephanie Linus, Michelle Dede, Waje to mention a few and you can tell she knows her business a 100%. From music video sets to red carpet events to magazine covers and movie premieres, she’s been involved with many entertainment A-listers. She recently styled Jidenna in Ankara on his last visit to Nigeria for his Thisday Style Magazine Feature.
I didn’t relent on my E-mails to get her on here as I really wanted to know more about her personal take on shoes and she was so sweet despite her schedule. Let’s get straight to the interview.
