“My journey into the fashion world started as passion; a fervent and certain passion. I have always loved fashion; back in the University of Port Harcourt, as an undergraduate of sociology, I would travel abroad on holidays and come back with a lot of designer clothes for my personal use and people would be like ‘…next time you travel please shop for us too.
“So, I realized it would make a lot of sense if I could monetize my passion, so I began to bring clothes to sell whenever I travelled. I started with one suitcase and everything I brought was bought, so I begun to increase my suitcases, from one to two, then three… And that’s how business started for me. Next came my first shop”, MedlinBoss recalled in an interview.
Medlin Couture has styled majority of Nigeria’s celebrities such as popular comedian AY Makun, Funke Akindele, Ini Edo, Tonto Dikeh, Yemi Alade, Omotola Jolade-Ekeinde, top politicians’ wives, wives of bank executives, and cream de la cream in the society on their birthdays, wedding anniversaries and other special days.
“Funke Akindele, Yemi Alade, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde,Ini Edo, Nancy Isime, Kate Henshaw, Ayo Making (AY), the list goes on. Funke Akindele was one of the first celebrities that reached out to me, even before I became a full blown stylist”, she said.
“She sent a DM acknowledging her love for my fashion sense and looks, asked if I sell clothes and she’d like to shop from me. Long ago (over a decade ago), I’d drive from PH to Enugu with a suitcase full of clothes to her set where I would not only sell but combine her looks and outfit for her; the same thing goes for Ini Edo”.
