Great feature in @britishvogue you know since I started designing in the late eighties my Ghanaian heritage has always been at the core of my creative process, fusing this heritage with classic #SavileRow tailoring , it shaped the way I use colour and design fabrics for my clothes.
#Africanism is a celebration of Africa, an acknowledgment of how our culture, style, music and traditions have inspired, influenced and impacted the world. With this collection I wanted to redefine the meaning of luxury and create a new visual language in this space.
I have always pushed beyond the boundaries and believed in evolving traditions in order to create an emotional connection with the wearer.
I'm a staunch supporter of promoting Africa in a brighter light and I feel that the world is now ready to hear different story from Africa, a story that’s rich in tradition, pride, style and creativity in it’s purest form and it was very important to me to start this story in Africa. Special thanks to @iamnaomicampbell for your support and always pushing beyond the boundaries.#aficanism #africanstreetstyle #voguebritain #ozwaldboateng
