In Just less than one year PassionisatHub.com was launched, It has grown to be one of the most updated and best all-things-fashion, trends, lifestyle and style blogs in Nigeria.
FAB Sharon Ojong spots on the Founder and Editor-in-chief as he shares his journey through the fashion industry and gives a little insight on what his blog is about.
(The Blog is run by Mr Cornells and Miss Nacy Daskalaki)
FAB: WHAT IS YOUR BLOG ABOUT?
CORNELLS: The category of my blog is called a “blogazine” and it’s about catchy trends, beauty, red carpet events, fragrances, anything and everything fashion.
FAB: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START UP YOUR BLOG?
CORNELLS: What inspired me to start the blog was borne out of my passion for fashion. Also, I needed a platform to ventilate my thoughts on fashion, trends and style as they happen worldwide.
This is a “project” I started in August, 2011. I wanted something totally different from what I was seeing in the Nigerian blogosphere. I wanted a blog with an “international” feel, so I came up with “PassionistaHub”. With about eight (8) years of cognate experience in fashion industry, I thought it wise to start fashion blogging, where I would share my thoughts on trends, fashion events, style tips, style news, beauty products, models, designers, stylists, etc.
FAB: AND WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE NAME?
CORNELLS: Actually, “Passionista” is coined from two words: “passion” and “fashionista” and it’s inspired by the fact that we have people out there that are passionate about fashion. And these people may want a connect with my blogazine.
FAB: WHO ARE YOUR READERS?
CORNELLS: P a s s i o n i s t a s (male/female).
FAB: WHO ARE YOUR TARGET MARKET?
CORNELLS:The young, upwardly mobile ladies/gents falling under 40yrs. We try to point out new trends that are ideal for both sexes. For emphasis, the Blog is targeted at those passionate about fashion. And indeed, this will remain our focus ad infinitum.
FAB: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SESSION ON YOUR BLOG?
CORNELLS: ManStyle (because I’m also a stylist who love styling men).
FAB: WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?
CORNELLS: Launching our online fashion magazine which will be out anytime soon.
FAB: PEOPLE SHOULD LOG ON TO YOUR BLOG IF THEY WANT/LIKE? CORNELLS: ManStyle, Colour-blocking trends, fragrance focus, Beauty tips, Style tips and red carpet events.
