Name: Wale Oyerinde

Age: 23

Born and bred in: Ibadan

Role at FAB: Fashion Assistant

FAB part of your job: Giving me the chance to do what I love best... Nothing feels imposed, every task is a stimulant.

Least liked but still FAB part of your job: The 'behind the scene' process of the magazine, but when the result comes out... that's what I call the FAB part of my job.

Aspirations/goals: Being the best I can be in fashion, striving constantly to be on top of my game, and someday become a fashion editor.

Inspirations: Abstracts, culture, music and people's lifestyles.

Hero/Heroine: Tom Ford (if he concentrated his divided energy & attention to the female side alone.)

FAB motto: Join the FABwagon.

Best piece of advice you can offer: It’s easier to be yourself, wear what suits you, dress well and learn how to edit... Simplicity is divine!

Your kind of music: Afro-pop, techno and soft rock.

Your kind of book: Books with more pictures than words. As they say "If you wanna hide an information from a black man, put it in a book with no pictures; he will never find it" lol

Dream destination: New York

Your style in a nutshell: Sometimes conservative, sometimes practical - all depends on mood.

Kryptonite: Bananas

Pet peeve: Dry people who push to be funny.

UPS: Ability to work under pressure and still keep cool, as my anger is best expressed in silence!
