Guest Post : Be your own creation

“Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.” – Dalai Lama XIV.

This quote aptly describes the creative spirit of Clint Malik, a Nairobi based creative,style blogger and fashion model I hold in high esteem. Who  wouldn’t, for a man comfortable in integrating pegs and double breasts on the fly? Spezzatura. Enough from me, enjoy your read.

I am Clinton ,a creative, style blogger and a fashion model. I started ‘be your own creation’ on 11th May 2015.  What I believe: Art enables me to find and lose myself at the same time… contradicting, yes but that’s the beauty of it. Fashion says who I am without even having to speak .The phrase ‘be your own creation’ leans on originality, creativity and self-worth. The brand mainly focuses on fashion, travel, clothing brands (his and hers), art and music.

Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual/auditory artworks expressing the author’s or creator’s imaginative skills intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. I combine fashion and art for successful creative looks. I use paintings on clothes to create a fresh, crazy style. I combine artworks from different cultures to create a diverse fresh style.

I’ve endorsed African culture in most of my projects to reach out to masses for inspiration. I am currently working on documentaries mainly based on different African cultures and their fashion sense. I want to inspire masses especially this new generation to embrace African culture and symbolism.
