As many celebrities and designers came to Paris Fashion Week with their outfits, some reflected. Adeju Thompson, founder and designer “People construct expectations about what African design is; but when they see Lagos Space Programme, they realise it might not conform with that idea.”
“To me, it was quite exciting to take traditional crafts and textiles and put them into a modern context,” she said.
The designers Jeremie Egry, Aurélien Arbet and Jose Lamali also discussed the Paris Fashion Week. “We certainly do not intend to stop, but to gather our thoughts so that we can bounce back better next June,” they said, reflecting on their journey.
