Oroma Elewa, Vogue’s Rising Style Star of 2011

From Vogue :

Oroma Elewa 
 As the editor of Pop’Africana, Nigerian-born Oroma Elewa brings the vibrant cultures and styles of Africa to an international audience. “Natural tastemaker” only begins to describe Elewa’s élan (she founded Pop’Africana with no publishing experience); her independent voice and sleek ensembles make this newcomer seem like a seasoned professional. She is often inspired by patterns from her home in Africa; brilliantly colored prints on turbans and frocks are her personal hallmark. Outside fashion shows, street-style bloggers swarm to her, but Elewa always appears at ease and on the verge of laughter. Her bright disposition and knack for graphic getups are what makes this polished editor pop.
