First runner-up at the 2010 Mr Nigeria contest and one of Nigeria’s finest actors and model, Alexx Ekubo is definitely not limiting himself as he has taken a bold step to carve a niche for himself in the Nigerian fashion industry.
The handsome actor has joined forces with renowned fashion brand Yomi Casual on this project tagged ‘ALEX EKUBO FOR YOMI CASUAL COLLECTION’.
The brand shared their fashion experience with the actor who is known for his sartorial choice to develop designs that are very simple, comfortable, refined, timeless and imperial.
For Ekubo who is also a model, this is a chance to prove his design prowess even further as he is well known for his panache and has featured in a lot of lookbooks.
Alex Ekubo who wrote about the partnership on his Instagram page while announcing to his fans wrote:
‘Growing up, I’ve always wondered what it will be like designing a collection for the public. What will be my key areas of focus? Well for me, comfort is key. I always want to not just be seen as comfortable in whatever I’m wearing, but to actually be comfortable in it, also, less is more – so less dramatic designs and a more subtle statement piece that screams BOSS AND MATURITY. Hence the creation of the new ALEX EKUBO FOR YOMI CASUAL COLLECTION’
