Hello beautiful ones! How is everyone doing this Monday afternoon? I hope you all had a great weekend. I had a pretty hectic and emotional weekend but I am still alive and well, that’s all that matters. I got to spend a lot of time with some of my friends, my young sister who is also my best friend and my parents. It was amazing! I am always grateful to God that everyone in my family are alive and doing very well, it’s such a blessing. I cherish every single moment I get to spend with them. I’d like to share something I learnt over the weekend. I learnt that being calm and patient is very important and always pays off. Is there something you have been working on and it seems to be taking forever? Don’t get frustrated, it will happen, don’t lose focus.
Ok now that we have done that, are we ready for this week’s male feature? Let’s find out who he is.
Hi Male Feature …..tell us something about yourself
I go by Marco Obi, I am a 26 year old Entrepreneur. I was born in Nigeria and moved to Houston TX where Ihave spent the majority of my life. I currently live in Alabama and I am the CEO and owner of Marco Obi Fashion house. Marco Obi clothing will be an online store which allows people to order custom suits and also schedule fashion consultations with me personally. I will eventually work on having physical locations God willing. I am building an empire by working to own my manufacturing company where my designs are handmade and well-tailored. I currently make custom suits for people while I work diligently on my spring 2017 suit line that will be open for men and later follow up with women’s designs. My suits consist of unique designs that I draw out with my creative imagination and bring to life with hands and brilliance.
Ah nice! How would you describe your style?
My style represents my personality in several ways. My Afrocentric designs represent my Nigerian heritage, bold colours represent my creative imagination. I believe that my relentlessness allows me to break barriers in the fashion world. I do not believe fashion has rules. Your outfit is Art from head to toe. You can paint whatever picture you like and viewers can dissect it the way they choose. Fashion is in the eye of the beholder- Marco Obi.
What or who inspires or influences your style?
My inspirations are Ralph Lauren and Gianni Versace because they make quality clothing and timeless garments which I have grown to appreciate over the years. I also admire their work ethic and techniques. I strive to break barriers in the fashion world challenging others to think outside the box and express themselves!
What are some of your closet favorites?
