April 23, 2009 |

While recession is still going on, African designer Alexander Amosu seems to be unaffected as he created the most expensive suit valued at $103,000 or £70,000 in a very mad economic situation. According to, it took more than 80 hours and 5,000 stitches to produce which makes £14 ($21) per stitch. Rarest fabrics, Vicuna; a South American camelid which produces enough wool for shearing every three years, Qiviuk; world’s most expensive wool from the Arctic muskox, blended with Pashmina from the high mountain plateus of the Himalayas. Finally, the addition of 18 carat gold in a diamond drowned buttons sums up the whole item. According to Alexander Amosu, “We might not be catering to everyone, but the people who buy Alexander Amosu want to wear the very best suits in the world.”
