I remember the first time I came across this cropped blazer was almost two years ago on my explore page on instagram. Nigerian designer ATAFO made it and matched it with a tulle skirt. His cropped tuxedo was in velvet with a satin lapel which I thought was cute. After a while I noticed Tom Ford did similar pieces for his Ready To Wear Spring 2018. Then I kept seeing different street style looks of the cropped blazer and I knew it time to try my hands on it because it really caught my attention. Just around that time I got impromptu invites to London Fashion Week 2018 and so I decided to create my own cropped blazer using my mother’s vintage short sleeve blazer. I wore it to the Natasha Zinko Show during London Fashion Week and I got compliments for it. I think after that I created three more in different colours and one in print. It’s a very simple DIY and I have a tutorial for it below. Hope you enjoy it!

September 2018, I made this and wore it to the Natasha Zinko Show at London Fashion Week.
Created a navy blue version as well.
