My line is proposing a new conversation in African design. It’s very different from what I believed most people in Lagos understood fashion to be. But it seems to have found a place though as I’ve seen sales increase. What is the role of community in your work? I made a manifesto when I started LSP two years ago. Community is one of my core principles. I believe in collaborations, sharing ideas, and chosen families. It’s happened so organically, and I have had the great privilege to work with amazing artists and designers from across the world. I think people have an instant visceral connection with the work—if you get it, you get it. The clothes speak to underdogs like myself. We are very protective of Lagos Space Programme, and I like that it has become a safe space for them and me.
