In life, one thing leads to another before a passion or idea becomes a vision. This was what happened in the life of Ogbonna Kelvin Chukwuma, the CEO of KenMoore Fashion who rose from scratch to become a business tycoon of repute in the Nigerian fashion industry.
KenMoore Fashion brand is a Nigerian indigenous brand which has been offering multi-category fashion products for men and women. The products include suits, blazers, chinos, singlets, boxers, t-shirt amongst others. KenMoore Fashion has become a household name in the Nigerian fashion industry.
How did this adventure start? Ogbonna Chukwuma was a guest at a media forum recently where he revealed how he ventured into fashion and what motivated him into the business.
He said: “At a tender age, during my apprenticeship in the fashion industry, I developed a keen interest and passion for the subject matter and since then, that has been my anchor in the business. I was also inspired by the exhibitions and trade fairs I attended in some European and Asian countries.
“I got to know, that there is nothing cast in concrete as regards being a big fashion brand because not all the big fashion brands have factories. This motivated me to see the possibilities of having mine as a registered brand.
“I have been into business for a very long time, marketed and sold various brands that are not mine, in the course, I found out that setting up my own brand won’t be a regrettable decision, eventually, with my hard work and passion for the business I can say so far no regrets.
We have varieties of designs in KenMoore brand that are fast selling due to the fact that we have maintained the quality over time.”
Speaking on the goal and his ambition for KenMoore Fashion brand and how he plans to achieve it, Ogbonna told the members of the press that the brand will become the biggest and famous fashion brands in Nigeria.
”We hope to achieve it by maintaining the quality of our products and making it readily available at all times. This brand has continued to soar and is gradually becoming one of the most sought after designs in Nigeria, known for its unique, classy staples,” said the KenMoore Fashion founder and proud father of three children.
Though he encountered some challenges along the way of being a master of himself, Ogbonna disclosed further that perseverance, hardworking and for being blessed with good staff, he was able to overcome the hurdles.
“Standing out as a brand is not a one man job, so the initial challenge I faced was getting the right people to work with. However, I was later blessed with people of same goal and mindset which has skyrocketed the company,” said the boss of KenMoore Fashion.
Speaking further, the leading man behind the highly sought-after brand, said products of KenMoore Fashion are readily available in high quality shape, at pocket-friendly prices even as he maintained that the seal and guarantee of quality will always be found in all KenMoore Fashion products.
“As we maintain and improve on the quality of our products, we are making sure the prices are on a good side for buyers, such that anyone even with minimum budget can always purchase.”
