Celebrity Fashion Stylist Kanayo Ebi signs two new African-inspired designers to New York showroom

Kanayo Ebi, also known as the ‘Fashion Finder’ and stylist to the stars, has expanded her New York based showroom with two new signings this week.

The Kach Me If You Can showroom welcomes UK-Nigerian designer Ife’s Closet designed by sisters Titi and Tinuke Ukrinamemen – a collection of vintage inspired pieces influenced with West African heritage through classic prints and fabric. Plus New York based Nigerian physician turned designer Ezie by Esther Ihezie, whose designs propose elegant and timeless creations through a versatile ready to wear collection of sultry evening wear to flirty daytime fun.

The showroom, designed by the New York based stylist herself, aims to bridge the gap between new and emerging designers with those and the industry interested in authentic and contemporary ground breaking fashion forward designs through the use of PR, branding and styling.

Kanayo Ebi, the showroom’s CEO, whose styling credits range from Oscar award winning actress Kate Winslet to rapper J Cole and TV personalities Angela and Vanessa Simmons, said:

“We are thrilled to have Ezie and Ife’s Closet on board. Both designers are incredibly talented and each offer something new and refreshing that will be a great addition not only for the showroom but to the fashion industry as a whole this season.”

Ezie and Ife’s Closet will join UK based designers Innocente Messy and RAAAH/Rahima Mohamed Couture as clients, who are also represented by the showroom.
