The Dozzy Couture brand in 2016

Hello friends!

We hope this February has started off on a great note for you?

Here at Dozzy Couture, its bliss, fatigue, work, bursting out of creativity and much more.

Last year 2015, we climbed a lot of heights in the Nigerian fashion world. From our runway showcase at the Runway FADAN 2015 to NTFS- Vogue Edition 2015, then Maiden Ankara Fashion fiesta 2015, Veba ‘Mystic Lines’ fashion show and St Eve Fashion Show – Fashion is Art… To mention a few. There were also television and newspaper interviews of our CEO Dozzy Nnamdi Obinwanne  and international online feature of the Dozzy Couture brand.

We are beyond elated at the success of last year and look forward to the blessings that this year has to offer.

As usual, we are breaking every known creative barrier to bring about designs that will make your mouth water. It is not about stepping on an industrial machine and putting needles to fabrics; the creative process is everything. We know that and we do not for one second take it for granted.

You inspire us to make unique and detailed pieces and once again, we beseech you to come on board with us and let us do for you what we’ve been trained and are talented at doing. Let us make clothes that are classy, stylish and unique for you.

The year is still fresh, so make that decision to not let 2016 sweep past without a style change that only Dozzy Couture can give you.

5 accessories every man should own

By Chinwe Obinwanne

Sometime ago when men were boys, beaded wristbands and long chains hanging from jeans plus “bandana” sticking out of the back pocket of pants were considered must-have accessories but not anymore. Boys have become men and so their tastes have gone up a notch too.

In choosing accessories, men now consider investing in accessories that do the double job of looking good and standing the test of time.

Nothing screams classy than seeing a man who pays acute attention to details. So that said, here are five accessories that every man that knows his style onions should have in his collection.

1. The Black/Brown Leather Belt

From time immemorial, men have been strapping their clothes to their waists with some form of “belt”. Once upon a time in the olden days, strong branches were strewn together and used to hold the covering for the nether regions. So, belts aren’t a new introduction to fashion but the belts as we know it today as a fashion accessory showed up during the 1920s when waistlines were lowered and so by extension, trousers’ capacity to hold their own became undependable.

Investing in good quality black and brown belts is now a no-brainer for fashionable men due to its ability to match almost any outfit. You can push the edges of fashion by buying other colors of belts but you dare not do away with the two classic belt colors (black and brown).

These colors will easily blend with lots of other hues you have in your wardrobe and soon you’ll come to appreciate owning these two colors when you see how much use they serve you each day.

“Make sure you invest in good leather and a strong metal buckle,” says Adam Walker, founder of The Male Stylist. “Don’t forget, a belt has to go through a lot of strain every day, so spending a little extra cash will mean it lasts you longer.”
