Meet Zuri Greer

Age: 46

Hometown: Columbus

Background: I am a proud graduate of Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio were I majored in Marketing. I am a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.

Approach to fashion: Just like the Boy Scouts say, you've got to always be prepared for any occasion. Our belief is that a man's wardrobe should be filled with options. Options that allow him to be ready to dress for any occasion.

Style is … Style to me has absolutely nothing to do with brands, labels or cost, but it has everything to do with confidence! Style equals confidence.

Most looking forward to … We've done a lot of fashion weeks all throughout the country over the years. I'm really looking forward to seeing my hometown designers, what the come with and how they compare to the rest. [I'm] Really looking forward to seeing the best of C-Bus!

My Fashion Week Columbus collection in five words or less: Making a statement.

The celebrity I'd most like to dress: Will Smith

The Columbusite I'd most like to dress: Bow Wow

The worst fashion faux pas: American men tend to wear there suits way too big. I hate that!

I never leave home without … my phone and my swatches.

My favorite local boutique: Sole Classics

My hope for Columbus fashion: For continued growth and success for all the local designers and brands.
