My SUPER STYLISTIC goes to one of the queens of #BlackGirlMagic, Ade Samuel. Being an aspiring fashion guru and fashion merchandising myself, I absolutely love her natural ability to shine and only produce building blocks of talent. The triple threat got her degree from State University of New York College at Buffalo State

in Fashion Merchandising and Textile Technology and a degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications from the Fashion Institute of Technology. Samuel is definitely goals and the epitome of poppin’ itself!

I’ve always had a love for fashion and knew that I was going to be a creator in the industry. I just never realized until interning and learning through my many experiences that styling and designing would be the path that I fell so deeply in love with,” said Ade Samuel in an interview for Black Enterprise.

She began as an intern for Teen Vogue, CR Fashionbook, W Magazine and working as an editorialist in addition to her history of being on top of the game. From there, she branched out into styling while moving her way up to a fashion assistant and prospering in styling dropping looks for celebrities like Big Sean, Monica, Jhene Aiko, and Yara Shahidi. Now, she has decided to add the designer title under her belt. Her shoe line, Ade Samuel Shoes is an Italian made luxury shoe brand she launched in spring 2016 and is really setting the tone for black stylists. Her background as a New York native and of Nigerian descent, adds the quality richness and content to her eye for style. “It clicked that my line had to be sleek and fashion-forward and had to have sex appeal. That’s what Ade Samuel shoes are all about.”
