“What you ordered versus what you got”
This trend is timeless. Whoever has not experienced this one needs to organize a special thanksgiving.
I had decided never to draw out any style for any “stylist” again. I think they sew better by prior knowledge. If you give them something new, they forget your size, cut the material, and paste it.
However, some stylists are just exceptional with their quality. They don’t give you what you ordered. They give you the very best. Here on Fashion, I’ll be taking you along as I explore talents that you should go to for trustworthy styling. For today, I’ll be giving you sneak peeks so, stay glued.
Here are some stylists you should know and check out.
Nelson Ehimen is a bespoke Fashion Designer in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria. I met him when I was in my university days. I didn’t know he was a stylist at that time. When I saw his designs, I was caught aback. He is very playful with his designs and when I mean playful, I mean skillfully playful – from Ankara print sweaters to senators, to custom t-shirts, he makes sewing look so simple, and to tell you the truth, it is not at all. Catch him on Instagram @neo_apparelz.
Lasisi Adams is a stylist in Oshodi, Lagos State, Nigeria. The first time I went to his outlet, I thought it was an office until I got to the other side. This explains his two-way lifestyle – he is a banker and doubles as a stylist. Catch him on Instagram @haydamscouture.
Jezreel Ejiofor is a talented stylist. She adds spice to styles. I am very picky when it comes to stylists and this is one person I trust will do a perfect job and give me more. I call her small but mighty. She puts sauce to every stitch. I’m definitely trusting her with my expensive materials. When you find her, hold her by the waist. Find her on Instagram @jesreal_c.
