To be recognized as the International Fashion Influencer for the year 2020 in Ghana goes to show the impact this influencer has in the fashion space as Ghana is known to be a very fashion-forward country in the continent.
A Mozambican-born global citizen who has managed to build a reputable brand for himself, King Levi Dapper, as commonly known carries way more than just the face value of being a fashion influencer. Dapper usually speaks to a man who dresses immaculately in suits which is what King Levi has managed to create his brand around. He has carved himself beautifully in business as seen in his endeavors including a shoe line range known as Vicious shoes. Vicious shoes started when Levi was staying in Morocco and was out of a regular job. He says that time got him so creative and driven plus Morocco has beautiful natural materials like their lovely soft leather.
That is how he birthed the shoe creation business working closely with a team from back home in Mozambique in 2017. He decided to create his own job through this work and this is a formidable act to show that you do not always have to wait to be employed which is a cry for many African sons and daughters. There is more untapped potential in the entrepreneurial space.
Levi’s learning and growth were also fanned by being able to travel wide and far. This helps in creating an open mind in one’s thoughts and abilities. Levi is based in France where he lives with his family. Levi’s love for fashion started getting recognition back in about 7 years or so and that when the influencer cap emerged which he has gracefully owned with ease. Through his love for fashion, Levi and his team have managed t host successful fashion shows which on inception in 2017 was a one-day event that managed to grow to a two-day event.
Excitingly, this influencer had successfully reached a pinnacle by launching his Fancy Fashion week in 2020 which is a milestone not just for himself but for the Mozambique fashion community too. It is exciting to watch people like King Levi Dapper who have unconsciously turned their daily existence into a business entity that is seemingly growing in leaps and bounds.
