"My dark skin kept me in the shadows for a very long time. I never got much respect which affected my confidence-- it was difficult to make a good impression on people. But I always wanted to be noticed.
One day, I had an epiphany-- since I work with textiles and have a network of tailors, I decided to start designing my own wardrobe! Today, everything I wear is designed with one goal in mind-- it must stand out! When I began dressing like this, I expected my wife to be embarrassed or annoyed. Imagine my surprise, when she said, ‘I’ll help you design!’
I’ve always been the guy that sticks out. People often ask me about my style and I can’t believe that at one point in my life, I used to be invisible. No one can forget me now-- I love being the centre of attention!"
