Kelvin Vincent, the multiple award winning fashion stylist and one of the best in Africa joined the vogue challenge some few days ago and was handpicked by the editor-in-chief of British Vogue, Edward Enninful himself as one of his top ten favorite.
Style God As we all know him to be is the creative brain behind most of the celebrity glam on the red carpets in Africa.
His works speaks volumes and power and he’s a force to recon with. He’s styled the likes of Jackie Appiah, Juliet Ibrahim, Joslyne Dumas, Toke Makinwa, Yvonne Nelson, Mr. Eazi, Efya, Victoria Micheals…you name them.
Speaking in an interview with British Vogue, he expresses how he feels about African women going through a lot of discrimination, the misleading pictures of women and the popular stereotyping of women as weak and voiceless.
