Talking about people doing stuffs in the fashion industry, here’s a guy that is relatively new but challenges the ‘status quo’ with his uniqueness and ingenuity.
Our #TheInspiredDream for today is Gazal Abayomi a fashion designer par excellence. He has been in the industry since 2014. He runs a fashion outfit called Gaza Republic.
Gazal Abayomi studied Civil Engineering in Yaba College of Technology. After he graduated, he was in a fix not knowing what to do with his life.
Hear him speak: “after school I was almost useless to myself but I kept praying and asking close friends what they think am good at, a couple of them said they think I like looking good and outstanding, then it dawned on me that I could do fashion. This was in 2013.
“From then, I went to learn from a friend who had been in the business long before me. In 2014 I kicked off after gathering some ideas and ever since I have had no reason to look back.”
Every Fashion Designer is in the business of solving one major problem – nakedness, but Gaza Republic has more in stock. They also ease people off the problem of disappointments from tailors which is one thing that is predominant around here. To achieve this, his company has a standard of not exceeding one week in delivery. They even run 48 hours tailoring.
As an added service, Gaza Republic also does style shooting as well as being consistent with their slogan which is ‘we do fashion’.
On the question of what high point Gaza has had in his business, he had this to say, “I have had a lot of people say to me that they are happy that they found me because tailors have really done them bad…but ‘Gaza Republic’ changed their perspective.
