We are delighted to announce the following speakers for this very special evening:
Temi Otedola is the founder of jtofashion.com- a fashion and lifestyle blog which highlights Temi's passion for fashion and travel and offers her audience (mainly 16-25 year old females) an insight into latest high-end, high street and African inspired trends as well as new exciting cities around the world.
Temi has previously been recognised for her work in CNN Africa, The Times Magazine and British vogue and has also held top-tier positions within the industry including being an official ambassador for Lagos Fashion and Design Week. Temi is also a regular contributor to one of Africa’s most renown publications, Thisday Style - as well as to Elite living Africa.
Temi is also the founder of new initiative, Afternoon Tea in Ankara (ATIA) which is a bi-annual event hosted between London and Lagos. It sets out to connect young people who are aspiring to enter the fashion industry with those who are already well established in the industry. ATIA has a concept that derives from Temi's own passion to fuse British and African culture as one. Indeed, few are as qualified as Temi to see such a blend; as a Nigerian schooled in the UK Temi is as well travelled as most initiative designers are, her 'shuttle life' as termed by Vogue enables her to draw constant style inspiration from both around the globe including the places that she calls home, London and Lagos.
Emile Vidal Carr
Emile Vidal Carr is fresh from working on the technical team for Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan collections for Paris Fashion Week, and now launched his own premium fashion label: Emile Vidal Carr®. 29-year-old Carr has previously designed a range for high street and online giants including Topshop and ASOS upon graduating from the prestigious London College of Fashion.
Launched in 2013, the Emile Vidal Carr® collection was inspired by Carr’s passion for architecture and the desire to create structured, wearable, fashion for women crafted from technical fabrics. Carr’s first premium collection was constructed from soundproofing fabric, which is something he plans on returning to for his next collection.
Carr has worked on collections for Roland Mouret, Victoria Beckham, Erdem, Peter Pilotto and Kanye West. In 2008 Carr was one of 20 designers chosen to take part in New York Fashion Week. He was also part of the UK technical team that provided the 2012 Australian Olympic team uniforms. Carr’s designs have been spotted on the likes of MOBO awards founder, Kanya King, MBE and co-worked on a dress for presenter Tess Daly for an appearance on Strictly Come Dancing.
