This brand has over the past couple of years, built and by every right, earned their reputation from crafting classy, contemporary and street styles outfits, which upholds and reflects the styles of a true debonair gentleman.
The brand was officially founded in 2012 by Nonye Nkwocha, who also doubles as the creative director.

Over time he has so far proven this love and passion with dedication and hard work aimed at achieving relevance and excellence in the industry. It can be said that there is so much more that is yet to be unveiled by this creative director.

Kochhouse has expanded its strongholds and now makes tuxedos, bespoke suits, corporate attires, traditional (native wears) as well as footwear like loafers, fashionable leather sandals and slippers. Kochhouse has earned its slot in men’s fashion as it blends African culture with contemporary designs that makes the brand peerless and has scissored a wide range of clientele, from celebrities to average man of fashion, who desires the brand’s subtle yet unparagoned design approach and sense of style.
