Bhind every remarkably styled Nigerian celebrity on a red carpet, magazine cover or fashion campaign is a super talented and inspiring stylist. In the growing world of Nollywood celebrity fashion, there are a few stylists who have made a name for themselves as connoisseurs of style. They are the star dressers who are ever on standby offering both A-listers and rising talents the opportunity to elevate their personal brand using fashion and style as an edge.
One of such fashion gurus is Jeremiah Ogbodo, or Swanky Jerry as he’s popularly known. Swanky began his career as a celebrity fashion stylist with the launch of his fashion and lifestyle brand Swanky Signatures Styling in June 2012 and has since then, grown to become one of the most sought after stylists in the industry.
The multiple award-winning stylist also adds designer; publicist; personal branding strategist; and image consultant to his curriculum vitae. He’s behind many of the ‘slay-bulous’ looks of some of your favorite celebrities. What’s most impressive about his work is the personal touch he puts on each look he creates as he styles to complement each subject’s unique taste and ensures all clients are made to feel special as he bends down to straighten out every tiny detail of an outfit. In recent times, his favorite clients have included Caroline Danjuma, Juliet Ibraham, Yemi Alade, and Chris Okagbue.
The stylist who became a year older yesterday, July 4th, was recently featured in an avant-garde GQ editorial by La Mode Magazine.
