Fledgling consulting company, The Sensebox Nigeria has launched an innovative platform for the fashion-forward niche called Metamorphostyle – an avenue to discuss menswear and style from an intellectual perspective.
The first series of Metamorphostyle, which was held at private members’ club, Miliki, Victoria Island, Lagos, was attended by Nigerian stakeholders and tastemakers like Audu Maikori, Funmi Victor-Okigbo, Mai Atafo, Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Omatsola Barrow, Remi Adetiba, Tunji Olugbodi, Samuel Odesanmi, Paul Okeugo, and others.
The event curator and Creative Director of Metamorphostyle, ‘Segun Obagbemi took the audience on an interesting journey while explaining the origins of the now popular suit stating that;
“The relevance of the suit to everyday life and special occasions cannot be overemphasized. 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. The showcase was followed by Creative Director Segun Obagbemi presenting a style guide on building a classic wardrobe, with guests also participating in general discussions and Q&As with prizes given out.
Looking forward to the next series!
