5 Nigerians Who Are Pushing Fashion Boundaries And Setting Trends


Fashion always leaves room for creativity to be spread out from its edges; I’m not talking about loose hems, stay with me, will you? The world of clothes, designs, accessories gives expression for the genius within. Those sketches. Cuts. Threads. Colours. Help to bring to life the burden for a beautiful world. Fashion is art–and that’s far from cliche. So when Marilyn Monroe famously quipped: “Being normal is boring”; she wasn’t attempting a pseudo-intellectual course or putting a stamp of approval on deviant behaviours– she was merely revealing an untapped world of creativity that few have found, and all need to find.

Pushing fashion boundaries appears ‘cool’, ‘avant-garde’ but those who try are constantly hounded. Marc Jacobs, former Louis Vuitton creative director. Michael Jackson. Lady Gaga. Lil Kim. Nicki Minaj. Madonna. Grace Jones. To mention a few.

Remember Kanye West Yeezy season 1 and 2? Dresses for slaves, vagrants, zombies jab?

Nigeria, too, has people who are pushing the boundaries of fashion and setting trends. Here are five Nigerians pushing fashion barriers:

Even Michael Jordan never rocked this! Well, he became a billionaire off selling some of the fanciest shoes but still dresses like an old couch, so? Kingsley Okonkwo, here, teaching the basketball legend game…
