Kola Kuddus Couture created by Kola Yusuf, started with a focus on the individual. In 2004, as a personal shopper and stylist for friends, Mr. Yusuf grew frustrated with the brands that were available. He decided to start his own fashion design company focused on making clothes for men. Distinctly modern and marked by rich color, flawless construction and quality fabrics, his designs remain loyal to African trends and styles, yet epitomize global glamour.
Showcased at high profile fashion events such as Lagos Style Week, the Kola Kuddus collections for the modern man are long lasting, high quality and timeless. Â The man behind the label has come through the ranks of emerging designers to be a recognized force in the Nigerian fashion industry. A philosophy graduate from University of Lagos, Mr. Yusuf has also studied at City University London, Nobel Africk, and at the prestigious London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins.
The ready-to-wear collections pay careful attention to detail and his classic and casual styles are developed with a modern aesthetic.
