In Kwames own words: Mr Kwame said,” fashion is not by knowing how to put the colours or garments together, it’s about understanding the language of the garments, the rhythm of the material while putting it together. It’s about knowing where the next piece goes or understanding the body that will wear the outfit without seeing the body first that’s how I describe fashion in my own world.
Anybody can be a fashion designer, or a stylist, but to my own understanding its totally different, am passionate when it comes to my work . I know I was born to compliment the body’s royalty. I love what I do, because I was born to bring out the best bold looks in individuals. As I always say “wear what speaks for you.” Let your clothes make the statement for you. And believing in yourself is a key to open dream doors. What makes me different is that I’m royal when it comes to my work. Always remember, there is power in a suit, don’t just wear a suit, and wear one that speaks for you. (KKBT)
