Launched in 2014 by Okoro Emmanuel, Emmy Kasbit was born out of a passion to dress unconventional men and women. The brand’s aesthetic is defined by clean and architectural cuts, and since winning the Fashion Focus Prize at Lagos Fashion Week in 2017, Emmy Kasbit’s recent collections have placed an emphasis on reinterpreting and reinventing vintage looks in a contemporary way. In addition to the accolade, the Emmy Kasbit brand won a $13,900 cash grant, and business mentoring from Ijeoma Ogbechie, an expert in finance who is currently a vice president at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and founder of Avivere, a fashion e-commerce startup. Taking inspiration from his family and his Nigerian heritage—particularly his father and the looks he wore in the 70s in Nigeria—Emmanuel’s aesthetic is largely guided by his roots. As the brand continues to grow, Emmy Kasbit remains a pillar of the Nigerian fashion scene. Speaking to The Glow Up about the future of African fashion, Emmanuel said: “It just needs more investment into providing an unprecedented fashion experience from start to finish and that involves fabric production.”
