Our fashion feature for this week is iamISIGO! The founder of this exquisite clothing line is Miss Gbubemi Ogisi. She established the line in February 2009 starting it as a small independent company in Ghana and Nigeria; with concepts based on her eccentric sense of style and her unique ability to mix various trends. The clothing line seeks to create a striking awareness of how African culture can be fused with western designs to create lovely pieces.
iamISIGO's clothing are made to perfection(which we feel is an understatement!), ensuring that the customers are given optimum quality at their finger tips at affordable prices. Forecasting future sales the clothing line seeks to grow at an enormous rate. She also deals in customized clothing ensuring that our customers are given the opportunity and secrecy of never been seen designs. Another prominent strength of this clothing line is that majority of the clothing are hand crafted and the materials and accessories used are of extreme quality.
