Everywhere you look nowadays Africans are in power, in control & making power moves to showcase the new purchasing power, creativity & vision that puts a new face on Africa & Africans worldwide!
Nigerian, Chris Aire has been dubbed the Emperor of Ice and the Ice Man for his innate creativity in juxtaposing urban chic with hollywood glamour. I first heard of Chris Aire when he became the first jewelry designer to show his collection as fashion during the highly acclaimed New York Fashion Week . No one could forget Alek Wek strutting down the runway in nothing but a $50 million red gold halter dress!
Chris Aire has not only redefined the so called urban market in jewelry, but he has also created & patented his signature red gold which is now purchased & used by other designers all over the world. From his humble beginnings sleeping in his car with only $500 in the bank, Chris Aire is the epitome of Nigerian bigness that lives by the mantra “go big or go home”. He has not only gone very big with major celebrity following, but he has also gone home with a new partnership with Nigeria Ministry of Mines and Steel to debut his new Hollywood glamour collection. Who could ever forget May Anderson in Chris Aire’s 20 million dollar diamond dress or Naomi Campbell in his firts fashion week collection wearing the $10million dollar halter, or sexy model Tyson Beckford dripping in muscles & diamonds. Let’s just say Chris Aire knows how to put on a show that is filled with show stoppers & satisfied revelers.
If anyone knows anything about Nigerians all over the world, you know that the Super Eagles like to do things big, whether it is the extravagantly large head wraps worn by their women or making major business moves. Chris Aire has brought his Nigerian bigness to Hollywood with flash & elegance.
