Los Angeles is a melting pot of cultures and
designer Kristopher Enuke reflects the multi-cultural mix in his
designs. Nigerian born, English educated and raised in Los Angeles gives
this designer an eclectic background which is interpreted through his
work. He retains the LA cool in his designs while still letting a bit of
English eccentricity emerge. The result is a celebration of classic
elegance and ethnicity that has the distinct Angeleno air to it as well.
Kristopher pays passionate attention to detail and fit while reinventing
the clothing. Before designing for Oligo Tissew, he attended Otis Parson
and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design. He has a variety
of experience at companies from denim to knitwear which rounded out his
education in textile and production.
Kristopher coined the Oligo Tissew label to mean refined cloth. It is held by its parent company Oliver Twist whose
philosophy of the orphan who made it good holds true. This label holds
Kristopher's passion for design, but more than that it also is his way
of giving back. He has set up a scholarship fund in his hometown village
in Nigeria so that village children can improve their future and the
success of the Oligo Tissew line enables Kristopher to also help ensure
the salaries of the village school teachers.
Kristopher Enuke is a sought after talent whose
reputation for design often preceeds him. The Oligo Tissew line is only
a small token of his talents, but it is one that many admirors wish to
relfect and one that many women wish to wear. Kristopher's main intent
is make the wearer of his clothing feel sexy.
