how we start this journey
I’m a modern day ophthalmic technician and bespoke tailor.
I grew up in Onitsha, Nigeria but moved to the United States in 1998, living in Chicago, IL.
I currently reside in downtown Chicago. My interest in fashion goes back as far as I can remember. I remember back in Nigeria, my dad always took my brother and I with him when he went to the tailor to get a suit. The smell of the fabrics, the sound of the sewing machines, the crisp sound of scissors cutting fabric. It just felt supernatural.
I first came up with the idea for my company after graduating college. I had friends who were also graduating and beginning their job search. A lot of guys would scramble to to buy suits for interviews and etc, but in the midst would forget certain things. Before i knew it, people were asking me to take them shopping to help them find a suit. Others asked me to hem or even taper their trousers. It wasn’t until one of my best friends Chris (who ended up being my one of my first clients) asked me if I ever thought about becoming a stylist. It was in that moment that the idea of ISOKO was born.
