About

ernest21
Believe it or not, I started out in the legal profession but being a creative at heart, I jumped ship.  Fast forward the years, and I’ve worked in the fashion industry in many capacities which include: Writer, Stylist, PR Consultant, Television Host and Producer.  I’ve been lucky to work with international and African-focused brands like Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Berlin, Arise and Silverbird Television.


This platform is a way for me to bring you into my world and share what I’m passionate about: fashion, photography, beauty, lifestyle…I hope you enjoy your time here and leave inspired. Bisous

    Hi Biki, I recently switched my career focus from the airline industry to the creative industries. I know it is hard to get into the industry(fashion/event planning/entertainment) or even get clients, but I know that this is my passion and I have the talents and skills to pursue this new direction. I’ve done some projects in the past and done some freelance gigs on the side(events, PR, writing & styling). Obviously not enough, but looking at your work is not only really inspiring, but also motivational to not give up!! I’m working on the website also. The only thing is, the Netherlands is such a small country for creative people like myself…there aren’t so many events going on, and there’s no fashion here….grrr.so I’m also looking abroad. If you have some tips, please let me know! xo -Jey.

    • Hey hon, thanks for letting me know this, its always good to know what other bloggers are getting up to, a bit of their background. I’m glad I could inspire you somewhat. I gave up law for fashion many years back and if I had to do it all again, I would, but instead of doing editorial work for independent mags (that always have no money) and for fashion start up companies with no solid financial plans: I’d have done PR work for top brands and then from there done my styling and writing gigs…my advice is master the Netherlands fashion scene. Be the fashion top dog over there, write for the mags, style their mags, shows etc try and get on their TV shows…and all the wthat way you when you are targetting bigger fish, you’ll have proof you can do the job.
      Let me know how you get on, I’m interested, good luck hon! ( :

        Thanks for the encouragement!! Much appreciated. Even though I haven’t done much, I will still do my best to get more gigs..but it’s so hard here..they usually want interns…students who are enrolled in school! Since I’m not…I still won’t give up. I’ve had a look at your portfolio and I might add the projects I have done so far on my website too..It might not be much, but it’s a beginning. I will also incorporate some personal styling on my blog and link both sites. And I’m trying to network through LinkedIn as well . I’ve also decided to not focus on Fashion only, but lifestyle, interior, entertainment also.. that way I won’t limit myself. Once my site is finished, would you mind to have a look at it? Thanks again!! 🙂

        • Yeah, definitely add what you’ve done on your website, and jazz it up to sell yourself! And yes, once its finished, you can show me! Have a good wend hon! ( :
          Ps veeery gd idea not to just focus on fashion…lifestyle and interior will be a good add on!
