On Ep. 44 of LexxxTalkAboutIt Alexis J talks with Pittsburgh stylist, designer, writer and artist Chi Ilochi. At the age of 20 years old, Chi has already been featured in several publications and magazines from Blavity to Italian Vogue. Her work as a stylist has given her opportunities at New York fashion week, and she also models her work while using style to express herself. Chi talks about how growing up in Pittsburgh as a Nigerian American shaped her mission to use clothes and styling as a way to make others feel confident and be their best selves. We also talk about season 2 of You on Netflix, and Alexis J’s latest blog post about rethinking your goals for #2020.
Plus we ask:
- How was Chi’s experience growing up as a Nigerian American and how did she begin to embrace her own identity?
- What led to Chi partnership with GoodWill for a thrifting style back to school drive?
- What is the biggest lesson to learn about forgiveness?
Let’s talk about it!
