      why is it that we look down on our own culture? if westerners didnt hold their fashion in high esteem,they wouldnt be where they are today.The important thing is that he utilizes cultural elements and presents quality product #supportnaija

      • Yoknyam Dabale May 20, 2012 at 6:43 pm

        because we have internalized colonized mentality… unfortunate! Serious deconstructing is needed! We need to wake up fast!!!

      • diera December 27, 2012 at 12:28 pm

        this is not about looking down on anyone, if it was top notch we will give it that, did u see the photoshoot with rita dominic, genevive and kate henshaw? fierce. this one – thrash

    • diamond April 4, 2012 at 5:42 pm

      what’s local about it? hope you are not the local one.

  • Redcarpetgoat April 4, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    i love every bit of his designs! they are well tailored and very original!

  • LPS April 4, 2012 at 2:31 pm
  • jonzing April 4, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    Why does susan peters look constipated, ok designs its just about the embroidery, D’Prince does it for me…I nor fit shout

  • ethyqueen April 4, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    love every bit ..but did i notice somethg wrong with Susan peters…this picture cropping n photoshopping did not do her justice.clothes are cool though

  • Annie April 4, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    Susan peters will always be bashed where ever she shows face.. nice collections tho.

  • Lue April 4, 2012 at 2:52 pm

    that alex guy is fyne sha……….

  • ng April 4, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    Is it just me or do their heads really look big? Please photoshop with caution. Nice designs by the way

  • MIMI April 4, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    its good to see susan peters. i dunno why people love bashing her, yh she insulted linda ikeji so what? big deal. all d people hating on her are just jealous of her BB porsche and bno im not ann asslicker, i just hate it when people hate unneccessarily it her money so she can buy whatever she likes with it. btw she looks nice.

  • JoJo April 4, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    They look good. Its not bad at all.

  • frivolities April 4, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    the photoshopping in Uti’s first picture and his pose with Susan Peters…..sorry.

  • lol April 4, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    uti is a great male model…

  • chinny April 4, 2012 at 3:20 pm

    omg Alex is so sexy in the black, God my eyes have seen beauty-eye -gasm. Alex man you too fine. And yeah am glad Desmond lost weight, he looks better when he is slim

  • Food for thought April 4, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    what’s up with the Susan’s waist and shoulders and Uti’s hips? There’s something wrong about the pictures. I think the photographer or whoever photoshopped the pictures didn’t do the collection any justice.

  • Mafia April 4, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    Susan Peters is the reason I decided to take a closer look… Her outfit looks gorg!!! I can see Me in that dress, which is why I love it. And I know I’d like to be in a pic w/ Uti… so I cant hate. I like just about everything, except Uti’s shoes. I just dont like the very long, sharp nosed shoes on guys… but that’s my personal taste.

  • kem April 4, 2012 at 3:38 pm


  • pynk April 4, 2012 at 3:55 pm

    looks nice, well tailored too.

  • Redcarpetgoat April 4, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    keep hating Uti & Susan while they make their money! …..olukuu

  • Annie April 4, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    @Mimi..LOLZ..pls no one is beefing, stop being sentimental mayb cos she is from ur state? i can also claim that state cos i was born and bred there, i am not bashing but doesn’t she truly look tacky in that dress? :)..will look better on some1 with fuller hips..

    • mimi April 5, 2012 at 2:47 am

      Lol darling I’m sorry u r wrong, I’m from imo. state.

  • aj April 4, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    i waant Alex!!! too sessyyy

  • uche April 4, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    Uti pls go to dentist and work on your teeth,

    • Bibi April 5, 2012 at 12:16 pm

      Why should he go and work on his teeth? You are one of those who make people go under the the knife just to conform to people’s expectations. He looks good because he is made in God’s image. He is wonderfully made.

      • JoJo May 15, 2012 at 4:54 pm

        Yes, his teeth are really bad. I got an up close view of it when he was in Brooklyn last Nov 2011, I was in shock. Bracers are not that expensive and they have the invisible ones

  • charityloungelagos April 4, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    fashionista per excellence brother to comic merchant…Celebrities Favourite Choice Bella gives us more of Kola Kuddus collection….Where is Muyiwa Osindero’s Clothsense?

  • cathy April 4, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    not bad

  • curious observer April 4, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    What’s that on Yomi’s lips? Ororo?

  • susan April 4, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    susan susan ur shoulders too high

  • Blackknight April 4, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    @Uche – But I didn’t see any Smiling Uti’s pics here…..Where are the teeth that you want him to fix? Or are you another HATER? We are appreciating the clothes and not peoples’ faces or teeth.

  • jade April 4, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    abeg< leave susan be now, she looks absolutely lovely.

    • Turayo April 5, 2012 at 7:31 am

      She does. This is her best pic of her, that I have seen.

  • chelseafcbabe April 4, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    Photo shot is just to much

  • chelseafcbabe April 4, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    Correction *Photo shop*

  • e-bukun April 4, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    er….there is nothing “casual” about these. Looks like they’re auditioning for the next Bollywood star

    • Gbeborun April 4, 2012 at 10:35 pm

  • sheriff April 4, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    all you haters hating on yomi’s design you are free to do so… i am sure because you guys are faceless thats why you feel you can hurl insults at people going about their personal business. Iam pretty sure most of you are just JOBLESS!

  • Prokofiev April 4, 2012 at 11:00 pm
