Youth and political advocate Ohimai Godwin Amaize aka Mr. Fix Nigeria is front and center of the new Tesslo Concepts look book. Tesslo Concepts is interestingly owned by Tessy Oliseh-Amaize, wife to Ohimai.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the collection, Tessy Oliseh-Amaize had this to say:
I was at Isale Eko market in Lagos Island when I stumbled on these set of plaid fabrics that caught my attention. It was like that moment when your eyes open up to something you never knew existed before. The more I stared at the fabrics, the more it dawned on me that everything we need to give Versace, Armani, Gucci, D&G and the rest a run for their money is right here.
I just felt this rush of anger and excitement at the same time and promised myself I was going to make a collection out of these fabrics that will make Nigerians really proud. That’s how the Lagos Island collection was born.
