Born January 25, 1978 and raised in Lagos, Familusi Akin Babajide(FAB) is believed to be a reincarnation of His grandfather who was a
tailor and passed away a few weeks before he was born. In 2001, when
he was 23, he discovered his interest in making his own clothes,
having traded in clothing and accessories for a few years. Mostly
self-taught, the young designer used his background in the Sciences to
do research in Fabric, Fit and Finishing to create winning pieces -
and the first shirt he ever produced was mistaken for a Jermyn Street
product! With the applause and exclamations that came from clients,
friends and family, the brand was born; and Exclamations Couture has
since focused on setting the standards for the tailoring of Shirts and
Suits in Africa.
