MANday 47: Time To Ugo Monye Your Wardrobe
Hellurrr… happy new week my people! So if you have never heard the name Ugo Monye, well good morning! Now dawn has come upon you and it’s my pleasure to make the introduction. But first of all, this week’s tune is from Jacob Banks, titled Unknown To You.
I have driven past the Ugo Monye store several times in Lekki, but I never really knew that such amazing craft could come out of that store. You know how you feel these people with plenty ‘daddy’s-money’ have come to rent expensive stores and they really don’t have the art of designing? Yea I think that way sometimes of some designers. I apologize, I thought the same of this brand too. Until Ebuka stole the show at Banky W’s wedding and kicked the ball right into the post. All roads led to Ugo Monye’s Instagram page and I should believe, his store. It was incredibly unbelievable the way that design trended. I was in awe of the uniqueness of the Agbada design. I was like, where has this guy been all my MANday life? Apparently, he has been in the business of fashion designing for over 7 years but never got as much notice until this avalanche of attention by Ebuka and the bespoke Agbada. I tell you, once God has marked you out to shine, just forget it. You gon shine bright!
So of course I went to his page, blessed my eyes with his designs and eventually followed him. I now know for sure where my husband will be getting his traditional wears whether he be Nigerian or not! Hahaha.
Anyways, I thought to share some of the designs that sent warm shivers down my spine. You know me. I’m in love with authentic male fashion!
Now I’m not yet sure how much dent his pieces will leave on your wallet. But I know that it won’t be a bad idea to Ugo Monye your wardrobe at least once!
Hope your day is off to a great start! Do have a fantastic week ahead!
*hugs and kisses*
Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Better
