SO I had this exclusive chat with Nigeria’s most talked
about fashion stylist, Prince Uzoegwu and he spoke on a lot of issues. He talked about his
relationship with Denrele Edun, his clients, why he dresses the way he does and of
course, what you have all been waiting to hear; his LOVE life. Lol. Enjoy the interview after the cut.
appearing on red carpets with Denrele because of the way you dress. What inspires
Gothic and edgy. I hate pretty and the normal norms of dressing because I find
it boring and over used. The way I dress is my own means of accepting who I am.
It is my way of expressing myself. Besides seeing Alexander Mcqueen’s
collection when I was in high school tickled my interest in fashion and this
brought about my obsession with everything to do with the way I dress.
letting your personality come through. I like colour blocking, and tees that
make a statement. I wear contact lenses sometimes to stand out. I don’t like
looking like everyone else.
But don’t you think that is the more reason a lot of
people refer to you as being gay?
and how I wanna look. I don’t follow
style or norms because I find it boring. I believe in fashion freedom which I am
expressing. If any sees it as been gay good luck to them. Ignorance is really a
disease. I guess that is why a lot of them can’t differentiate from fashion
freedom and ones s*xuality.
What is your relationship with Denrele?
Can you mention some great clients you have worked with?
Joan Okorodudu, Dwight of the real housewives of Atlanta, Caroline Ekanem Danjuma,
Monalisa Chinda, Joy Tango, the list is endless.
Why did you choose to become a Fashion Stylist?
tickled my interest in fashion and this brought about my obsession with
everything to do with the industry. Great designers who have created works of
art are admirable.
