The designer, Chinenyenwa Ekejiuba, who makes all her pieces from the traditional material, had this to say about the collection and her design process. “I decided to use the George fabric because I feel it is unique and will never go out of fashion.

Just weeks after they both separated from their spouses, country singer Blake Shelton and pop singer Gwen Stefani are reportedly dating. Blake, 39, and Gwen, 46, are said to be in the early stages of a blossoming romance. An insider told Life & Style:  'They're trying to keep it on the down-low, but it's not happening partly because they're all over each other. The chemistry between them is off the charts. Everyone on set sees that Blake and Gwen are falling for one another. They both just ended their respective marriages, and 'the pain they've endured' from rumours of their spouses cheating has provided Blake and Gwen something to commiserate over"

Can’t believe I’m going to be a married woman, it’s all so terribly grown up lol. I didn’t want to put up anything on my site, but I’m trying to make it a bit more personal, so let’s see how this goes. Anyhoo, so on Saturday 5th September, I had my introduction. This is where the families of the bride and groom officially meet. We had expected about 100 people, I hear there were about 250 people there! Eeek!!
I didn’t sleep well the night before, because I was so nervous and I really didn’t know what to expect. I’ve been to events like this before, but I’m generally in a corner somewhere just observing.
Today the attention was all on me…and that was so unnerving! I’m used to being on stage, but then work-mode has been activated, so in my mind its all about work.
I was so nervous, couldn…

[Dating] in the spotlight—I have to consider my son. I don’t want to make it uncomfortable for him when he goes to school with his peers. And I have to answer to my mom too. And my 91-year-old grandmother. I can’t be like, ‘Nothing, Grandma, I didn’t do it; it’s just a [picture of a] girl that looks like me, I promise!’” On why people connect with Cookie: She is everybody’s alter ego.
