KenMoore founder says fashion brand will do more for orphanages
Founder and CEO of KenMoore fashion brand, Ogbonna Kelvin Chukwuma, is a business tycoon with a large heart and who is committed to providing help and succour for the less privileged in society.
The acclaimed founder of one of the leading fashion brands in the country, while speaking during a recent interview, said God has blessed him and he found it is very important to extend his benevolence to the needy especially those in orphanages across Nigeria.
This, he said, he would do to fulfil the biblical injunction that mandates all Christians to be their brother’s keeper.
“God has given me the grace to know where I am coming from; that it is not by my power and by my will, it is all by the Grace of Almighty God. God has also blessed me and I also must in turn bless people around me, especially the needy,” said the CEO of KenMoore Fashion, Lagos.
He said he has been visiting orphanage homes to identify with the fatherless and motherless children, who only depend on God for their survival.
“I cannot close eyes to see my fellow human beings suffering. I think this is one of those things we are in this world to do whether you a Christian or Muslim.
“My humanitarian activities will be targeted at the poor irrespective of religious and ethnic backgrounds. It is my delight to do this”, added the boss of the KenMoore fashion brand
In the meantime, the CEO of KenMoore said his sojourn in the fashion world was divine as he was inspired by the exhibitions and trade fairs he attended in some European and Asian countries many years ago.
According to Chukwuma, “I got to know, that there is nothing cast in concrete as regards being a big fashion brand, because not all the big fashion brands have factories. This motivated me to see the possibilities of having mine as a registered brand.”
The KenMoore boss disclosed that he has been in the business of fashion designing for quite a time now, adding that he is also into marketing of fashion products, which may not necessarily be products of his brand.
“I have been into business for a very long time, marketed and sold various brands that are not mine,” he said. “In the course of my career, I found out that setting up my own brand won’t be a bad idea. Now, with my hard work and passion for the business, I can say so far I have no regrets.”
According to Chukwuma, the KenMoore Fashion has varieties of designs that are fast selling, adding that the brand is conscious of the taste and quality demands of its numerous customers.
