There is something so laid back & easy about Mobolaji Dawodu's styling, its refreshing. I find so many stylists these days are obsessed with putting in all the trends at once, your eyes get confused because they don't know where to start. He was born in Nigeria but is based in NYC now and works as the contributing style editor for the magazine FADER & is also an up & coming designer. His personal style is what i like to call 'African-Quirk' - traditional materials with a western edge. I love the simplicity of his work and his 'less is more' approach. Love love love all the different hats he uses. Can't wait to see his new line, I'm sure it'll be absolutely fabulous.

The constant in-flux of diverse creativity from fellow Nigerians inspire me everyday. This is about show casing underrated, upcoming & established Nigerians that continue to stretch the definition and perception of art. Be it art in the form of fashion, style, music, movies, photography or literature!
