     We need to change the face of
     traditional menswear.
     We also need to revolutionize
     old fashioned bespoke tailoring
     and create happier menswear
     collections.
     A typical example of changing
     the face of London's Saville Row
     is Ghananian born tailor and famous
     menswear designer Ozwald 
     Boateng


   
     Boateng made his 1994 Parisian
     debut of his Bespoke collection
     but made it a bit more modern
     and chic and also colorful.
     He still maintained the traditional
     craftmanship of Bespoke tailoring.
     

  A great learning curve is his recent
  ad campaign inspired by the African
  township called Soweto in
  South Africa using images in his
  campaign as seen in day to day living
  in the world famous township made
  more famous by iconic 
  Nelson Mandela


  
   We need to look at Nigeria and the
   African continent and try to stimulate
   the dollars by creating collections
   that are more ethnic friendly but still
   have the look and feel of a London
   or Italian Bespoke Collection
