QUOTE OF THE WEEK

This week we celebrate the impressive achievement of 19 year old designer, Taofeek Abijako. The Nigerian designer made his New York Fashion Week debut with his label Head of State+. His explores images from African photographers such as Malick Sidibe, Seydou Keïta and Clic Clac Baby. Taking their original black and white images and reimagining them in colour to create his collection. Taofeek uses his designs as a medium to tell the stories of his people, and hopes to use his platform to encourage dialogue on social-political issues.
"I approach Head of State+ as less of a brand and more of a case study. It’s me digging into my cultural upbringing while trying to have a firm grasp and understanding of it. My belief is furthering a philosophy of thoughtful, inconspicuous, and honest design across the board".
