When it comes to creating a fusion between African and contemporary styles and trends, Temi Otedola is the blogger that comes to mind which is why she is our Woman Crush Wednesday #93. Temi Otedola, daughter of Nigerian business tycoon, Femi Otedola, and sister to the prolific music producer, DJ Cuppy, is a fashion blogger who launched her own brand, JTO, back in 2014 as a platform to express her adventures through the arenas of fashion, art, travel, and photography. Her drive, creativity, and consistency earned her a feature on CNN African Voices in February. This 21 year old fashion-centric diva, who’s also a student in London, United Kingdom, mixes British and Nigerian fashion in her style.
Writing a fashion blog alongside studying, Temi Otedola’s style mixes her love of her Nigerian roots with her London lifestyle. Her penchant for a bold designer piece and eye for detail are showcased in immaculate outfits that combine volume and texture. Playful prints and frilled details add an element of fun that match her joyful personality. Keep an eye out for the emerging brands she champions – particularly those that share her African background.
In Temi’s words “Fashion has been an obsession of mine since I can remember. I was the little girl who would dress up in all of my mother’s clothes and insist on styling my two older sisters. This obsession then became an appreciation as I began to follow various designers and also took fashion inspiration from various eras including the 60s.” Temi’s end goal is to hopefully run her own fashion and culture publication.
See some of her best looks…
