Temi Otedola channels her inner fierce as she covers the August/September issue of A Nasty Boy.
The raved webazine tapped the fashion blogger/style influencer who chose bold styles and over-the-top makeover for the feature while opening up about her thoughts on feminism, sexuality and autism in a no holds barred interview with creative director Richard Akuson.
The blogger who's also an autism advocate speaks about autism as one close to her heart while sharing her loves for style and what it takes to be a fast rising blogger.
On giving back with fashion she shares; "So, a really big passion I have – and a way that I am able to contribute to help young women who want to work in fashion, particularly, young ethnic minorities living in the diaspora is through my initiative called ATIA—which stands for Afternoon Tea in Ankara, and every year, the fabric changes as do the facilitators.
The aim of ATIA is to bring together young women of African descent who want to work in the fashion industry and have them come together for afternoon tea with established figures in the industry. These incredibly established women talk to the young girls and offer them bits of advice and inspiration, and a way to break into the fashion industry. It’s just amazing for them—I assume—to see these incredibly established and inspirational black women who are thriving in the fashion industry, and see them as a source of inspiration, and see the path they took to get to where they are now".
