What Does Black History Month Mean To You This Year?

Black history month 2019 to me means pushing boundaries and moving forward as a people. Exploring our history, channelling our identity, and creating a new narrative of what it means to be Black. Challenge Status Quo, and be the change you want to see.

Where Are You Finding Inspiration To Create This Year?

Culture! Now, forever and always. This year, I’m very open to discovering deeper dimensions of my identity, unravelling unique frontiers and expanding my thought process through cultural narratives. Most of my designs and mood boards are strongly connected to either my culture or other African intangible Folklore and practices. Exploring the memories of places and spaces in other to create new forms of expressions is my way of connecting with culture and identity. There is no better time and place to discover myself as a designer and journey through the unknown than from the design hub of the future, Africa.
