This marks the first in the series as an exposition on menswear and style from an intellectual perspective.
The event curator and Creative Director of Metamorphostyle, ‘Segun Obagbemi took the audience on a journey to the auspicious origins of the now ubiquitous suit stating that;
“The relevance of the suit to everyday life and special occasions cannot be over emphasized. The suit’s largely unknown history ranges from French royalty and aristocracy from Louis XIV, through Regency England to the modern day. The event will run as a series with different themes around enhancing the modern man. We are surely looking forward to the next one with bated breath!”
One of the major highlights of the evening was the trunk show of Brommon – an Italian bespoke menswear brand. The owner, Kwaku Boateng Akuoko presented the unique selling proposition of his exquisite hand-finished custom garments. He spoke about his brand’s plans for the Nigerian market whilst answering questions from guests.
