Read excerpts from the interview:
On who Denola Grey really is
The thing is, I am a pretty boring person in truth. I’m more of a homely person. I love my privacy very much.
Style to me is about control. It is a personal thing. In my world, I believe it’s something I do for myself and by myself. Simply put, my style is glam-themed. It is realistic and it is conscious.
On what makes his style stand out
It is a matter of personality and individuality. My confidence. It’s a thumbprint on me. I am also not big on trends. I wear what I feel like.
On being audacious, daring and expressive
No. I wasn’t always that way. Life made me grow out of my shell. I am a shy person. I’m an introverted extrovert if I can put it that way.
Favourite fashion pieces
My favourite fashion pieces would be gold jewellery, loose shirts, silks and well-tailored trousers. I like them a lot.
On the Nigerian fashion industry moving meeting up with international standards
Honestly, I’d say not yet. It is slowly getting there but surely with the right capacity and infrastructure, brands can improve. There isn’t any reason, with the right structure of course, for it not to meet with international standards.
