Passion Passport | Explore New Zealand’s Majestic Landscape Through an iPhone 8

Alexander-Julian (AJ) Gibbson uses his talents as a fashion stylist and editor to travel the world. Recently, his work brought him to Wellington, New Zealand, where the World of WearableArt (WOW) Fashion/Art Exhibition is held each year. AJ was born and raised in Houston, Texas, and now resides in Brooklyn, New York, so the remote wildness and dramatic landscapes he found in New Zealand mesmerized him instantly. When some downtime finally presented itself, he jumped at the chance to explore — with his iPhone, no less.

Hoping to learn more about his awe-inspiring trip and the imprints it left behind, we caught up with AJ upon his return to the States.

I took over Condé Nast Traveler’s Instagram account (@cntraveler) to highlight my trip to Lagos, Nigeria. In the story I covered Lagos’ amazing food culture, where to find and buy the latest Nigerian designer pieces, the reigning Nigerian music scene, and all the other fun things to do in the bustling city.
