Probably be when I was in art school [Coleg Menai] in North Wales. Having access to the amazing library on campus opened my eyes to different subcultures, like ’70s punk and the New Romantics of the ’80s. I also discovered the anti-fashion movement of the ’80s led by Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo. They explored clothing in a very serious, conceptual way: communicating ideas of individuality, proposing new ways to understand beauty, and dissecting time through cuts. It was such a revelation to me, the antithesis of what fashion was back home in Nigeria. I was so inspired and I wanted to be like them. I wanted to share myself in my work.
