I recently got the chance to chat with the very stylish biker, and celebrity fashion stylist Jane Michael Ekanem.

Also a budding designer and writer, Jane is well-known for her work with celebrities like Tuface, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Waje, Chidinma and Wizkid, and was recently featured on CNN’s African Voices where she shared her inspiring story on her journey into a career path that is not so popular in Africa.

Here are some highlights from our chat!

Oge: Please introduce yourself.​

Jane Michael: My name is Jane Michael Ekanem, I am a celebrity fashion stylist and a fashion entrepreneur.

Oge:  What is the most recent fashion item you literally just bought?!

Jane M: The most recent thing I just bought are a pair of shoes. I couldn’t have given myself a better treat as it’s been a hectic year and it’s about time for a new age. It was my birthday last week! *blushes*

Oge: I always ask this – Are you a foodie like me? And what is your all-time favourite Happy Day food?

J.M: That would be Epkang Nkukwo. It used to be Amala but after I had surgery, things changed. I can’t even stand Amala any more. Lol.

Oge: What is your Number One must-have styling item?

J.M: An LBD (Little Black Dress).

Oge: Does makeup matter as much to you as fashion does?

J.M: People who know me already know I don’t wear much makeup. So in that case, for me, makeup doesn’t matter as much but well-carved eyebrows and lip gloss is essential for me.

Oge: Top secret flawless skin recipe?

J.M: My top secret skincare tip is waxing the hair off my skin. Waxing also partially exfoliates dead skin off your body. I also have been using SafeGuard soap for over 2 years and it’s working for me.

Oge: Do you take pleasure in “baffing yourself up”?

J.M: No I don’t ironically. I am a ‘get up and go’ person, which is the inspiration for my ‘easy wear’ clothing line I’m currently working on. But I take pleasure in making others look good.

Oge: You mentioned you had surgery earlier in the year; have your scars affected your choice of outfits? Or have you embraced them?

J.M: Thankfully, my scars are not so visible and as much I have embraced them, I am still conscious of them.

Oge: What inspires your choice of outfits for your clients?

J.M: What inspires my choice of outfits is mostly the particular client in question. What the client likes, their style, their body shape / type, their comfort zone, e.t.c.

Oge: Who is the one person at the top of your ultimate styling bucket list?

J.M: That has got to be Kelly Rowland! And it will happen in Jesus’ name. Amen!
