What inspired this collection?
The inspiration is from my home town Ibadan and what I feel a proper Ibadan lady or girl will look and want to feel like on the streets of London on a cold day. So what are your thoughts on AFW?
I think it’s a fantastic platform for designers or any designer to be on. This is my very first time participating and this is the first day at this year’s show. I have been keeping up with what’s happening on social media and it looks absolutely fantastic in pics. Being here is even better and I can only imagine how the rest of the world views it. I think the exposure has been great for Lagos, Nigeria and Africa as a whole. So you mention the collection was inspired by your home town lbadan. What will you want the typical Ibadan London girl to feel when she wears a piece from this collection?
I will like her to feel very, powerful, strong, and very tribal. Not to feel lost wherever her location in Europe may be. I want her to still feel African. I want her to take a piece of her culture to London or Europe or anywhere else in the world. What do you hope this platform will do for your brand?
I’d like the exposure that comes with participating and showcasing on this catwalk and platform and fingers crossed, this will translate to sales for the brand.
