…Meet the Dapper kid.
Funfere Keniye Koroye aka. Dapper Kid is the brainchild behind the fast rising fashion empire Fusion Kelvar. He is not your usual run of the mill kinda guy; if he were a word it would definitely be….UNCONVENTIONAL.
A final year industrial design student of SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) in Georgia, the twenty one year old dapper kid is not only a cutting-edge designer; he is also an entrepreneur, blogger and best of all a STYLIST. His blog, (funferekoroye.blogspot.com) Fashion Kinetics, began creating a buzz when he started putting up his astounding one of a kind designs, styling advice and modeling them himself. His pieces and combinations …mind blowing.
In a recent interview with G.Y.E, he was quoted as saying, “I am a designer by birth and an engineer by nature”. That all about sums up his love for the arts. He’s designs range from Tees, Jackets and Hats to neckties, accessories and eyewear (yeah…you saw right, eyewear!). Every piece from his fashion label is quite outstanding and speaks for itself…trendy yet timeless.
We heart his style! Not only great at giving fashion advice on his blog, but also one with an impeccable dress sense himself. Funfere’s sense of style is the kind that leaves you craving to raid his wardrobe (this goes even for gals…we’r guilty!). His knows no bounds…eclectic we’d say…he dabbles with African fabrics especially Ankara, alongside other eccentric designer pieces. He also oozes of patriotism,we re-quote from a statement he made recently on AFRICA STYLE DAILY, “I am about representing Nigeria and wherever I go, I go bleeding green and white”.
For us and other faithful followers of his blog, we have, more recently experienced a fresh wave of originality from this young dude in terms of street style. We can’t help but gush about his very recent 7-day Look Book tagged Influences and Experiences…here he drew inspiration from his recent trip to HongKong, his roots from Nigeria and his domicile in the US. This just to mention a few of his novel ideas.
This squat expose on Funfere Keniye Koroye doesn’t tell you up to half of it but we assure you that He is definitely one to look out for. With his growing fashion label, Fusion Kelvar; Style Blog, Fashion Kinetics; also his budding career as an industrial designer…we conclude by saying that we’ve not come close to seeing the last of him…all other things are commentary.
