Extraordinary but legend in the making that’s all we can say about this young and talented man Kingsley Ushie.
From Cross Rivers State Nigeria, born and raised in Lagos with wonderful talent both on the runway and sketching of designs.
One of his Sketches
Today our model focus is on Kingsley “The rising star” just 19 but he has carved a nichefor himself after the Arise Magazine Fashion Week in Lagos Nigeria. Who would have thought this multi-talentedyoung manwho came to Arise as an observer will get this far in such a short period of time. However, he walked the ramp with the likes of Sebastian Sauve, Dudleyand other super models who were present at the event.
Call him 19 but I can bet you that this lil wiz can make the fashion industry in Nigeriavibrant with his sketches.
Kingsley started sketching in 2011 after his elder sister bought a fabric and no ides of what to do with it, young Kinsley came to her rescue only if her sister will pay him N200 to get Noodles, after that sketch, advice started coming from his family and loved ones.
Thanks to his sister for bringing that fabric called “Ankra”. Since then Kingsley has about 500 hundred sketches in his kitty.
Signed with Isis Models this young man is ready to rule his world. Hopefully we can see him on the ramps of London, New York, Paris, Johannesburgand Cape Town and come in August we hope to see him in London at the Africa Fashion Week London.
Moreover, we say Africa is the world’s next destination.
