Tokyo James’ Spring/Summer 2019 Collection – “An Alien in Africa”

Menswear brand, Tokyo James recently  released the lookbook for its Spring/Summer 2019 collection which first debuted at South African Menswear Week earlier in the year.
In this interview with Elle, the Nigerian born designer shared that reuniting with his father and exploring his wardrobe was the main inspiration behind the collection An Alien in Africa.

 Interestingly ,  this collection is the infusion of snakeskin into the brand’s pieces, featuring carrier bags and tote bags emblazoned with the brand’s name and dangling tassels adding a little fun to the already one-tone bags.
 The emblazoned name on the snakeskin leather bags makes a strong case for the "logomania" trend which is currently huge on all the international shows this season. With each collection, Tokyo James seeks to reiterate its brand’s aesthetics while tending to the needs of fashion fanatics in dire need of his pieces.

Nia Franklin is the New Miss America 2019

Miss New York Nia Franklin has taken over the crown of Miss America from Cara Mund at Sunday’s crowning ceremony held at the Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The show which was hosted by Carrie Ann Inaba and Ross Matthews saw the North Carolina native beat 51 other contestants to the coveted crown.
Miss Connecticut, Bridget Oei was first runner up, followed by Miss Louisiana, Holli Conway, Miss Florida Taylor Tyson and Miss Massachusetts Gabriela Taveras, in the second, third, and fourth runner-up positions respectively.
One of the winning factors for the music composition masters degree holder, was her performance of a segment from the well-known opera La Boheme. 
There was no Swimsuit competition. The organisers announced some months back that it was to ensure the competition took away all focus from the candidates physical appearance. 
Like her predecessor, Nia Franklin will receive $50,000 scholarship and a year-round job as the new face of the pageantry.
