Urban Clothing In Lagos. Live Mechanics is One going on Ten

The urban/street clothing style was my style growing up as a teenager, because I was a big fan of the group TLC. I loved Queen Latifah, Aaliyah and Da brat. Then there was Missy Elliot with her different rhythm and dance steps. Those were the ladies. The men were Snoop Dooggy, Mc Hammer, Kid n Play, the group,  Arrested Development, Naughty by Nature. These artist had urban style; how can I forget the days of the bandana head bands, the  oversized clothing, the timberland boots etc, The fashion was and still is infused in Hip Hop and Rap music. If you love Hip Hop and Rap, you’ll will appreciate street fashion and vise versa.

Fast forward to the future, Live Mechanics is a clothing brand based in The United States owned by a Nigerian. Their designs are urban, creative versatile and trendy. It pitches its tent in the street style of fashion. They opened their flagship store at the Adeniran Ogunsanya Shopping Mall in Surulere, Lagos Nigeria about a year ago, and now it seems like they have been around for years . Its urban flavor opened a different scene in Lagos fashion and music, so it is no surprise that you will find Nigerian hip hop and rap artist and their fans wearing a Live Mechanics design.

I love the fact that the brand reminds us of the marriage of urban clothing with hip hop and rap. When I see celebrities and people in Nigeria wearing a Live Mechanics jacket, I am proud, because I know the music and fashion industry in Nigeria is growing.

As Live Mechanics celebrates its one year anniversary next week with a blow out sale event and a meet and greet with artists, I wish the team many more years of clothing success.
