Asked how he feels to have clothed the president for the very unique and conspicuous Independence Day celebrations, Mr. Yussif had this to say, “I feel very elated, it’s truly a humbling moment for me and my team and we’re proud that the first gentleman of the land is a patron of the HT Brand”.
He added that a lot of prominent people home and abroad patronize the HT brand and that makes people think our pieces are expensive but that is not so. “We are very affordable yet top quality and unique. We are able to create for each client a unique signature style that can’t be repeated for the next”, he said.
