What inspired your collection?
The name of my collection is Afro Joker, inspiration is from the 80s South African dance called pantsula dance. The whole theme is about Street wear, which is the big trend for this season. And that’s the main reason I am doing this collection. I am playing with African prints and my traditional knits. Dappa prints, tartan, Diamond, plaid and check. What do you think was the highlight of the show?
Everything in general. This is my first time in Lagos and it has been my dream to do a show
in Lagos. Because in Africa the fashion scene if it’s not in Johannesburg, it has to be Lagos. It’s like in Europe, it’s either Paris or London. I’ve known Arise magazine since 2007. The big hard copy magazines and for me was like W or Vogue magazine in Africa. So I am very excited and honored to be here. Describe the AFW in three words Amazing, Amazing, Amazing! What are your expectations for future shows?
I want to see Arise in Paris, Milan and New York. For me the reason why I’m here and using African print is wearing local, by locals supporting the locals and being part of them. Supporting Africa.
