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.
