Watch: Accelerate TV’s Fashion Fix is a great idea but needs serious work

Every body’s getting into video these days. And Access Bank’s digital platform Accelerate TV isn’t content to slag behind while everyone else caters to our fashion needs. They’ve recently launched their new digital tv show ‘Fashion Fix’ hosted by Mercy Ajisafe.

Mercy Ajisafe

This is the first digital tv gig for the former model and current radio host and TV presenter. The first episode of the show just dropped and this is what we got from our first watch.

Fashion Fix is halfway between a fashion advice column and a makeover show with Ajisafe being both host and mannequin. The show follows the basic premise of offering advice on the style choices for important events and situations and will feature prominent industry insiders. The first of which is Yummie of Style By Youmee, the current it-stylist who has worked with prominent industry people like Rita Dominic and Waje Iruobe.

The first episode tackles all the dress pitfalls you could encounter on your first date and Yummie (using Ajisafe as her clothes horse) guides us through all the do’s and dont’s of making a great first impression without having it all hang out. The show would have seemed a lot better if they had, had someone else model the clothes, but hey beggars can’t be choosers. It’s too soon to tell if the show will be helpful to real watchers or not, but for now, we’re cautiously optimistic.
