Ladybrille Woman of the Month alum and stylist to the stars, Kanayo Ebi, has expanded her New York based showroom signing her first ever Nigeria based fashion label. Luxury fashion brand, Chidinma Obairi, has also become the first Africa based designer to be signed to the ‘Kach Me If You Can Showroom’ since its launch in 2016.
Joining a clientele of cutting edge U.K and U.S based designers, the talented self titled designer, whose pieces have been worn by the likes of DJ Duffey, Linda Ejiofor, Minnie Dlamini, Omotola, Osas Ighodaro Ajibade and Tansey Coetzee will feature high end ready to wear pieces and couture eveningwear, offering elegant slimline silhouettes and intricate embroidery with a hint of West African influences and impeccable sparkle.
“I’m really excited to have signed my first Nigerian based fashion designer. We’ve been looking for a designer such as Chidinma Obairi for sometime and being that I’m an American-Nigerian, I’m absolutely thrilled that I get to work closely with such an amazing talent and look forward to working with many more homegrown designers in the near future,” said Ebi whose styling credits range from Oscar award winning actress Kate Winslet to rapper J.Cole and TV personalities Angela and Vanessa Simmons.
The ‘Kach Me If You Can’ Showroom aims to bridge the gap between new and emerging designers with those and the industry interested in authentic and contemporary groundbreaking fashion forward designs through the use of PR, branding and styling.
Congratulations to Kanayo!
