He combined different fabrics like Kente from Ghana, the  woven Bazan fabric from Senegal and Mud cloth from Mali to create his fusion collection of elegant shapes.

According to the designer, “What intrigued me were the similarities between “Africans” and Americans in fashion. Americans buy into designer brands to express social status while “Africans” wear more extravagant fabrics to express their social status.”
