Collection: Adire Ogun

My graduate collection called ‘Adire Ogun’ is about the End Sars movement (a protest against police brutality and misconduct) that happened in Nigeria in 2021. I felt that I needed to express my frustrations through my craft.

I decided to create clothing for a new kind of movement. A movement that will protect the civilians from the everyday police abuse in Nigeria, a movement inspired by the black panther movement.

 I dyed and processed donated fabrics and dead stock fabrics that I found during my internship at Tommy Hilfiger but also to create Adire “tie-dye” which is a traditional Nigerian dyeing technique.

 I also got inspired by traditional Yoruba attire with military details to create my silhouettes.
