Nigerian Fashion Designer Chiedu Chukwumah Breaks Under Pressure: Precious Lakis to the rescue

26 March 2017 / Berenice Mulubah 

Precious Lakis and Chiedu Chukwumah, two amazing fashion designers from West Africa, one smiles under pressure and the other falls apart.  The Bright Colors Fashion show held at Farotage in Raleigh, NC, on March 25, 2017, was a great success.  The show featured designs from Precious Pieces Couture, designed by Precious Lakis of Liberia and Doro1681 designed by Chiedu Chukwumah of Nigeria.  Both designers represented West Africa well (photos from the event coming soon).  Was it flawless behind the scenes as it was on the runway?

Chiedu was straight up stressed. The up and coming Nigerian designer fell apart and he had a whole bottle of Hennessy to calm his nerves, which didn't help much.  Thank God, the experience Precious Lakis stepped up and took charge.  To his defense, the Bright Colors Fashion show was Mr. Chukwumah first fashion show in the United States, which is a great step forward into his career.  Africa is on the rise and with hard working individuals like Chiedu and Precious, the rise is few steps away.
