Happy Monday!
The kind folks at GT Bank invited me to Lagos, Nigeria to teach a Blogging Masterclass as apart of their Fashion Weekend! In addition to offering master classes, GT Bank gives smaller designers the opportunity to sell their wares to the public during the day, and has fashion shows at night.
