I admire and love featuring individuals who are totally in a league of their own. So it is in the case of Terence Sambo. I adore his style. Sambo is definitely one to look out for in the industry. He will creep up to the top of the ladder – and rightfully so. Read on and get to know him. Enjoy..
Can you tell us a little about you?
I’m a Nigerian boy and junior fashion editor at FAB magazine. I also possess a graduate degree in marketing from Covenant University.
How did you get started in the industry?
I started out as a Blogger in my final year of uni and I’ve branched into styling and bits of design here and there.
I honestly don’t know what I would do if I were not in the fashion industry…maybe I’d be in an indie band or an art curator. Fashion is my heartbeat and Im lucky to be building a career out of what I love, it does not make it seem like work. Sometimes I get up in the middle of the night to blog to jot down ideas…its an essential part of me.
Whom/What Magazines have you worked for?
I currently work for FAB magazine as the junior fashion editor and prior to that I had been doing mostly online writing for London based fashion and style magazine Esper, Bella Naija and my 2 blogs One Nigerian Boy & Men’s Fashion and Lifestyle Aficionado.
What inspires your style..it’s so unique?
My style is continually evolving and moving towards my predominant thoughts derived from my countless hours spent e-trekking street style blogs and fashion websites. I like to incorporate trends into my style cos it keeps things fresh and eclectic. At the moment my inspirations are tribal… something with an afro centric vibe.
How would you describe your personal style?
How do people respond to your style in Nigeria?
Style is a very personal thing and sometimes our idiosyncrasies are not always welcomed with open arms. I get a lot of grunts and side talks then there are also loads of compliments.
What are you into this season?
Small frame bags, DIY projects and African prints.
So, are you a wardrobe stylist as well as a Fashion writer?
Curious, what Countries have you visited, and have those Countries affected your taste in style?
Aha! This question always comes up and when I tell people the truth they seem pole axed…I’ve never been out of my dear country Nigeria. But I make daily trips around the world via the internet.
An essential part of life and living and everyone partakes of the industry knowingly or unknowingly.
