Eleanor Lambert in 1943 launched the first New York Fashion Week known at the time as Prerss Week. Eleanor was the press director of the American fashion industry’s first promotional organization, the New York Dress Institute.

The first edition was called Press Week, which happened to be the first organized fashion week ever, and the aim of Eleanor was to gain attention and drive eyes away from French fashion during World War II because fashion industry insiders were unable to attend the shows in Paris.

The event was meant to get fashion journalists to showcase American designers who had neglected in spite of their fashion innovations.

The Press Week was successful, gaining the attention fashion magazines like Vogue, which were normally filled with French designs, started featuring American fashion and designs.

With the success of this event, from 1950s it was then tagged "Press week of New York".

It became a citywide event known as New York Fashion Week in 1993, being staged in clusters of white tents in Bryant Park.

The New York Fashion Week is held twice a year, February and September, lasting 7 to 9 days per time where international fashion collections are displayed to buyers, investors, the press and the general public.

The Olympus Fashion Week New York, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York, MADE Fashion Week and many others are some of the branded events.

The management of Fashion week online collaborate with IMG and FTL Moda to organize and produce this event.

Admission to shows at New York Fashion Week is typically in the form of accreditation, with specific events by invitation only.


1. Before 1943, American did not have her own established fashion industry as it mainly reproduce items form French fashion houses. This French fashion houses were shut down in 1941 during WWII, this led to the first fashion week and initiation of New York Dress Institute which was funded by royalties received by International Ladies Garment Workers Union.

2. Publicist, Eleanor Lambert reasoned that the best means to promote American fashion was to promote designers, so the first Annual fashion press week was held on July 19, 1943.

3. The first show stole the attention of the Press and journalists and editors were flown in from around America.

4. The 1966 show was hosted by Halston at Bergdorf Goodman gave models the freedom to walk down the runway. This model was revisited by Perry Ellis in 1970 where he showed off his collection. The runway show continues today.

5. During The show in1991, an accident occurred when the roof of the venue cave in crumbling onto the head of popular fashion critic Suzy Menke’s, and almost killing model Anna Bayle. This event didn’t stop the show.

6. The NYFS was not taken seriously for about 50 years. It became a powerhouse in 1993 when special tents at Bryant Park were used. The venue elevated American fashion and make it a household name. it drew massive attention gaining it the required recognition it deserves.

7. In 1998, Helmut Lang moved his headquarters to New York. He decided to show his collection there in September and February, before the other European Fashion Weeks. Donna Karan and Calvin Klein followed, along with the rest of players in the industry.

8. The show held at the Lincoln center made it possible for people to walk around making it easier for street-style photography posing.

This are a few of the interesting facts about the legacy of New York Fashion Week

The Customer Service equation every startup must solve, memorize and live by!

Effective customer service delivery has always been the hallmark of any business across any sector in the world. The rise of the consumerist economy propelled by capitalism in the 1930’s was hinged on prompt customer satisfaction on all fronts. It should be said this was not really the case until Ralph Nader, a consumer rights activist in the 60’s started taking companies to the cleaners with legal battles and court injunctions that necessitated better service. Ralph Nader became so popular that when he ran for presidency in America in year 2000, he got over 1 million votes. Any formula or template for the emerging economy is a trickle down of the American model to suit realities on ground. It should be said that in the Nigerian business space, there has been a minimal understanding of customer service delivery and that is why implementation is hard.

Understanding Customer Service

Customer service is the act of taking care of the customer’s needs by providing and delivering professional, helpful, high quality service and assistance before, during, and after the customer’s requirements are metCustomer service is meeting the needs and desires of any customer. Some characteristics of good customer service include: 

  • Promptness: Promises for delivery of products must be on time. Delays and cancellations of products should be avoided. 
  • Politeness: Politeness is almost a lost art. Saying ‘hello,’ ‘good afternoon,’ ‘sir,’ and ‘thank you very much’ are a part of good customer service. For any business, using good manners is appropriate whether the customer makes a purchase or not. 
  • Professionalism: All customers should be treated professionally, which means the use or application of competence or skill expected of the professional. Professionalism shows the customer they’re cared for. 
  • Personalization: Using the customer’s name is very effective in producing loyalty. Customers like the idea that whom they do business with knows them on a personal level.

If this is to be the relative metric in Nigeria, a lot of startups would fail on arrival. As such, for startups to fully understand the essence of customer service delivery, they must remember that technology is good but human feel is even better.

The mistake startups make

The major mistake startups make in Nigeria is that they focus more on the delivery not the service delivery such that the delivery part is hinged on the algorithm and back end technology not the feeling of satisfaction the customer ought to feel. A very vivid example is with the delivery chain of an e-commerce site. The reason why it is problematic is due to not carefully articulating the parameters for good customer experience. 

Don’t hide from your customer service responsibility

Customer service is the lifeblood – Promise VS Reality

Startups should understand that effective customer service is the lifeblood of their business and a common ground should be found between promise and reality.

The promises currently don’t meet the reality. The laws on ground aren’t even adequate which begs the question of who sets the laws. I know return policy always cause a lot of problems, but in fairness to some startups, the reality on ground hampers effective service delivery, with the hydra headed monster of pay on delivery still destroying a lot of businesses, (the recent killing of a delivery man in Port-harcourt immediately comes to mind). This is why service delivery should meet current realities and this can only be developed through a hands on process of study and brainstorming. Here’s how:

Theoretical framework

In measuring Customer Satisfaction , the Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) is often used. CSI is simply a score that assigns importance ratings of service measures to the satisfaction ratings of those measures as provided by customers on the service delivery of the customers (KPMG, 2013). To empirically calculate Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) therefore, the following formula can be used: 

Where CSI = customer satisfaction index, S = satisfaction, I = importance.
Most times, there’s a conflict between employee’s individual state of mind, behavioural attributes and the economic pursuit of an organization. Work-life balance presents a significant ideology which is based on the fact that living a fulfilled and satisfactory adult life requires that the economic and social life of an individual should be classified as less compelling priorities but rather complementary elements of a full life. However the conflict situations encountered by working adults in managing their routine obligations between paid work and private life domains still dominates most work – life studies with abundant literature stressing the realities.

The silver lining

Start ups can achieve a lot of success with customer satisfaction but they must be willing to invest in infrastructure and training and most importantly, developing a customer service culture. They should understand that you are not being subservient to the customer if you help them out. A banker once carried my 25kg bag from Victoria underground station to the overground ~ a white man for that matter and he told me that, that was the training he received from the Metropolitan bank customer service school. Today, I have referred over 40 people to that bank due to that 1 act. Currently, the promise of “excellent customer service”, especially from some startups does not meet reality but we need to keep the work alive.

6 Types Of Hair Extensions, Which Do You Wear

Hair on women make them stand out as they show off their beauty. Beauty of a girl/lady/woman is enhanced by the kind of hair on her head, this is why women love using hair extensions every now and again to add length, volume, health or color to their hair.

Today we  takes a look at the different types of hair extensions available, helping you determine the type of hair extensions you should purchase and rock your world.

Human Hair Extensions

Human hair extensions are made from real human hair. However, numerous scams have emerged marketing human hair but really turning out to be a synthetic mix. As such, if you want human hair extensions, ensure it is 100% real and traceable human hair.

1. Hair Extensions

Synthetic hair extensions are made from a whole variety of synthetic materials. Compared to natural extensions, synthetic hair extensions are more affordable. What makes synthetic extensions great is they are available in a greater range of styles, colors and textures thereby making you look beautiful.

2. Sew-In Extensions

Sew-in extensions look and feel like natural hair, making it the ideal choice for women who want to sport a different hair style without waiting for their hair to grow. They provide women with the opportunity to flaunt the right hair style while their own hair continues to grow. The most popular styles in the market are silky straight, loose wave, body wave, kinky curly and deep wave.

If you want your hair to recover from damge caused by chemicals and breakage, then give this a try to make them grow back.

3. Clip-In Extensions

Clip-in extensions are the easiest to add and remove. However, this type is also considered the most temporary of every type. As such, they are a great way for teens to experiment with before selecting more permanent versions. This type of extension is fantastic if you require a new hairstyle quickly and for a little while. Just like any other type, they are available in both the human hair and synthetic varieties. They are easy to maintain and do not cause any damage to your hair.

4. Tape-In Extensions

This is easy to apply and take off., they are lightweight, easy to maintain and reusable than clip-in extensions. Looking at users experiences and reviews across the internet, it’s easy to see why they have become so popular.

Tape-in extensions are a great choice for active women who love working out. This is because the bonds stay in, despite all the sweat, oil, and dirt build up in your hair. This makes them safe for use in the gym as well because the weight is distributed more evenly. Moreover, the thin panels are soft and flat against your scalp, offering superior comfort.

5. Pre-Bonded Extensions

Pre-bonded hair extensions are fused to your natural hair with the help of keratin bonds, plant/petroleum adhesives and a hot tool. They have become very popular because of the natural look and feel provided although they require maintenance.

Once you wear these extensions in your hair, you have to practice a certain degree of caution when using oils, conditioners, and heat styling tools because they may damage or loosen the bonds in your hair. As such, most women choose 100% natural pre-bonded extensions. They look natural and can withstand significantly more heat than their synthetic counterparts.

6. Micro Link Extensions

These use tiny plastic rings that match your hair’s color to bind your hair with the hair extensions. Because these extensions do not require any heat, they minimize the damage caused to your hair because of it. This lets you attain a natural look without any damage. However, they may become rather tricky to add or remove. In fact, while they are easy to install and remove, they do suffer issues such as slippage. The micro links may occasionally slip down your hair and need to be moved back up.


Buying hair extensions can be a fun and creative way for a woman to experiment with her hair, try a new length, or test out new styles. Hair extensions of any colour, texture, and tone can be found on providing a woman with long-term or short-term solutions. Anything from clip-on extensions to extensions that are attached to natural hair for the long term is an option a woman can consider when shopping for these useful hair accessories on Women are well advised to take into account the health and condition of their own hair as they consider the different options.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2017: 5 Simple Lifestyle Changes That Boost Prevention

This month at, we celebrate women. October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which aims to increase knowledge of how we can help beat one of the most common cancers in women.

As more and more research focuses on what we can do to reduce our risk of the disease, here are five everyday lifestyle changes that women can make to their lifestyles.

Currently, breast cancer is the leading type of cancer among women, replacing cervical cancer. Here’s what you can do to cut your risks:

Shun Sedentary Lifestyle And Get Moving And Exercise More

A US study which looked at 1.4 million participants found that a higher level of physical activity could lower the risk of 13 different types of cancers.

Moving is seen to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer by 10%.

A Canadian research team also found that doubling the amount of weekly physical activity from 150 to 300 minutes could lower the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women by significantly reducing body fat, especially in obese women.

Eat More Fruit And Vegetables

A large-scale US study found that high consumption of fruit during adolescence - 2.9 servings per day - was associated with around a 25% lower risk of breast cancer in adolescent middle age compared to a low consumption of fruit - 0.5 servings per day.

In addition, the results also suggested that the combination of two servings per week of apples, bananas and grapes as well as two servings per week of oranges and kale during adolescence was significantly associated with a reduced breast cancer risk as teen girls grow into adulthood.

Cut Down On Saturated Or Bad Fat

 A recent research conducted and published last year found that consuming large amounts of saturated “bad” fat or low amounts of mono- and polyunsaturated “good” fats during adolescence is linked to higher breast density in young adulthood, a strong risk factor for developing breast cancer as woman age.

Saturated “bad” fats are commonly found in meat and dairy products like fatty meats, cheese and butter and the greatest killer of all, Margerine. Nuts, olive oil and avocado are among common sources of monounsaturated “good” fats. Margerine is no food at all, it’s just hydrogenated extremely hot oil, cooled and bleached.

Get Regular Dental Checks

After following more than 65,000 female participants aged 54 to 86 for an average of eight years, a US study found that a history of gum disease was associated with a 14% higher risk of developing any cancer and a “significantly higher risk” of breast cancer.

Get your dental health confirmed today by visiting your orthodontist.

Consume a lot of fiber-rich foods.

A research found that people with gum disease face a higher risk of certain cancers. One theory is that harmful pathogens could be carried in saliva and dental plaque, or through diseased gum tissues into the blood circulation. So to mitigate this, eat and fill up on fiber foods.

A large-scale American study looking at 90,534 women found that high intake of fiber during adolescence, especially from fruit and vegetables, helps to reduce the risk of developing premenopausal breast cancer.

The research found that young women who ate more fiber in early adulthood had a 12 to 19% lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who ate much less or no dietary fiber.

High fiber intake during teenage years was found to reduce the overall risk of breast cancer by 16% and cut the risk of premenopausal breast cancer by 24%.

Foods with the highest levels of fiber include kidney beans, lentils, wholegrain cereals, fruit and green vegetables.
