In Her Closet – Episode 7 – ZINKATA!!!

In Her Closet – Episode 7 – ZINKATA!!!

I have been drawn to Ezinne Chinkata’s style since her fashion editing days with Genevieve magazine and WOW magazine. I find her style adventurous, quite edgy and mostly original. When I was putting together this E-series, I knew I had to get up close and personal with her closet.

And so it was a great honor when she responded to my e-mail to do this E-interview. For those who don’t know, Ezinne is a fashion consultant, a fashion retailer at her zinkata store and fashion editor at zinkata.com.

She styled the beautiful Omotola Ekehinde and her daughter on the set of the Knorr Advertisement.

It takes a good stylist to get the perfect outfit to go with the set up

Let’s get straight into the interview which I found very entertaining and informative from a true stylist that she is.

E- interview with Ezinne

Jay: What does style mean to you??
Ezinne: Style to me is an appearance that perfectly portrays your ideas or preferences.

Jay: In putting together an outfit for a client, on a scale of 1- 10, how important are the shoes?
Ezinne: 10- Extremely important, except it’s a floor length maxi. Shoes have the power to thoroughly change the dynamics of an outfit.

Ezinne: When shoes are not re-heeled and it makes that really disturbing clinking sound when you walk on the floor (tiles).
Jay: What’s your favorite luxury footwear brand?
Ezinne: Jimmy Choo’s heels are super comfortable and Dior makes the most durable flat pumps.
