Afrique futuriste

Futuristic Africa

Nigerian Adeju Thompson, founder of the Lagos Space Program label , is the first African to win the International Woolmark Prize.

In a context where raw materials are rare, the electricity supply chaotic and transport unpredictable, he stays the course to offer pieces with a fluid and non-binary design, with a traditional natural dyeing technique as his trademark.

Lagos Space Program will present a collection at Paris Fashion Week in June. To be followed carefully.

Foday Dumbuya, the founder of Labrum London , bridges Africa and London where he lives.

His pieces fuse an English tailoring style and African inspirations: traditional illustrations and prints are his trademark, with a style that distances him from the clichés of African fashion.

His work was recently highlighted as he won the Queen Elizabeth II Prize.
