My graduate collection is about the End Sars movement (a protest against police brutality and misconduct) that happened in Nigeria last year. I felt powerless, so I decided to express myself through my art.
I wanted 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 to create Adire “tie-dye” which is a traditional Nigerian dyeing technique. I also got inspire by traditional Yoruba attire with military details to create my silhouettes.
