Rita Dominic is the new cover girl for Schick Magazine
The magazine has been curated for the smart, stylish and successful woman, and SCHICK Magazine is designed to tell authentic African stories, through the lens of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle.
According to Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Simi Esiri, “I remember moving back to Nigeria in 2012 and realizing the wide gap between creative talent, especially fashion designers and we, the consumers. I knew then that we had to make a collective effort to close this gap and build our fashion industry further. I knew my experience, as well as my appreciation for luxury and affordability, could contribute significantly to bringing these two groups of people closer.”
The debut issue, themed ‘The Power Issue’, celebrates African women playing pivotal roles in shaping the fashion, beauty and entertainment industries across the continent. Page after page, the Spring edition, is an embodiment of all Africa has to offer and takes readers on a journey through fashion editorials, interviews with A-list celebrities and fashion designers, hot debates, beauty, travel and more.
The cover star for the debut issue is none other than Rita Dominic. After 19 years in Nollywood, starring in over 100 productions, as well as winning several prestigious awards, it comes as no surprise that Rita Dominic graces the debut cover. The beautiful, accomplished and celebrated star has played a significant part in the growth of the Nigerian film industry and has become one of Nigeria’s greatest style icons, making her the epitome of the SCHICK woman.
SCHICK Magazine is initially launching as a quarterly print and digital publication. In addition, the periodical will produce daily content on the digital front www.iamschick.com.
Creative Director of the magazine, Titi Adesanya, says “The aim of the publication is to bring a fresh voice that appeals to anyone who has any sort of interest in fashion, whether they are actively involved in the industry or not. Our purpose is to engage, inform and inspire people throughout the continent, in a way that’s relevant and palpable.”
