As she teams up with Amazon Fashion, Chidera Eggerue edits her ultimate #10Trax playlist.
Chidera Eggerue has been labelled a ‘millenial mastermind’. She’s a best-selling author, a respected blogger and most recently, a muse for Amazon Fashion. Raised in Peckham, South-East London, Eggerue rose to fame via her #SAGGYBOOBSMATTER movement, which championed diverse body types and sought to shun patriarchal views of how women’s bodies should be. As a result, Eggerue appeared in a string of international publications and gained a mass following across her social media channels.
For her most recent project, she’s focused on confidence boosting by hand-picking a series of looks from Amazon Fashion that make her feel ultra-glam. In the 6 looks that she’ll pulled together, she’s ensured that this seasons key trends are evident – making sure that those that wear them will look the best of the rest at their Christmas party. Of the collaboration, she said: “I’ve had a lot off fun browsing the expansive selection of brands available at Amazon Fashion and selecting my key pieces for Autumn/Winter. I’ve created five head-to-toe looks that are perfect for me to slay this season! I enjoy styling up my outfits, adding my own personal touch and had an awesome time discovering wardrobe gems that complement my individual style perfectly.”
We managed to grab 5 minutes with Eggerue to breakdown the top #10Trax that she can’t stop listening to.
