Ozwald Boateng has had a transformational impact
on menswear fashion for almost three decades. Credited with revolutionizing men’s tailoring with a design aesthetic rooted in Savile Row traditions but defined by international style, detail, and artistry.
A contemporary twist on the classic form, unifying the classic tenets of bespoke tailoring, his instinctive use of colour, cut tand fabric fuses traditional classic British tailoring with a high end modern design focus on the refinement of a man’s silhouette, which has brought tailoring to a whole new generation of men.
Ozwald Boateng reached a point in his life when he realised he had to do something to make a change in Africa. Together with a member of the royal family of Buganda, Ugandan Prince Hassan Kimbugwe and social engineer Chris Cleverly, a former barrister and the youngest Lawyer ever to set up his own chambers, Ozwald formed Made In Africa, a company with the aim of creating businesses that transform the lives of Africans in terms of employment, homes, education, energy and health.
Chris was called to the Bar in 1990 following which he established Trafalgar Chambers and was the youngest
head of chambers in the last century. Chris is a regular presenter on TV and radio and a contributor to newspapers and magazines.
He is passionate about Africa and the need for a mechanism to assist Africans to help themselves.
Chris has been part of the team which advised the UK
on development issues as they impact on Africa.
Chris heads up the day to day operations of the Made in Africa Foundation.
