No to Vogue Africa?!

Imagine my disappointment when I found out Condé Nast had said NO to a license for Vogue Africa! I mean there’s a Vogue India, Vogue Turkey and even Vogue Taiwan! No to African Vogue…now that’s just f’d up!

Cameroonian photographer and make-up artist Mario Epanya earlier this year started pitching the idea of Vogue Africa to Condé Nast. In order to get the publisher to see the potential in the magazine he created several fictional covers, featuring gorgeous images that paid homage to African women.

Mario posted on his facebook page

“DEAR ALL. The Wait is over. Condé Nast said NO to an African license of VOGUE. So this is the last cover. Enjoy, but it’s a beginning of something”

According to the fashion bomb daily Mario, said

“…About a month ago I sent the director of Condé Nast France a message, via my friend, asking how I would go about getting a license for Vogue Africa. He replied that no, it would not be possible to do the project.”

Deola Sagoe launches Polo Line

I absolutely love Deola Sagoe, she’s my fave Naij designer, and she holds it down internationally too! She launched her Couture Polo Line on the 31st July 2010, in Lagos (wish I was there), but that’s talk for another day.

According to Tariere’s blog it was an A-list red carpet, with canapés and the drink of choice in Lagos, Champagne of course! The launch also served as a reintroduction of CANOE magazine.

Of course the beautiful people were there and everyone came correct!

The polos look faboosh and i’m especially loving the print lining on the inside seam. I want one!

More pictures from the event after the jump.

Sidenote: Don’t know about former Big Brother Housemate Gideon’s glasses…SMH. I think a smaller pair would have been better, but I guess na by force to do geek chic.
