I didn’t want to see too much African cloth because African cloth was appropriated. It’s so much fun to twirl around and watch the skirt go ‘swoosh’! I didn’t want just the anarchy of Afropunk, I also wanted the elegance of mixing modern shapes like Issey Miyake, and Gareth Pugh, Rick Owens, and Stella McCartney, with the African. In a way it keeps it fresh because I feel like every time I look at modern fashion it feels new.
