3 words to describe your style:

Expressive, eccentric, evolving

One word to describe your content?

Meticulous

Who inspires your personal style?

Travis Scott. His whole brand is spot on for me, you can see every collaboration he does aligns with his core beliefs and personality, he always makes sure he puts his own twist on every brand he works with. The fact he has always stayed authentic to himself corresponds with his long term success. It’s Inspiring.

Top 5 fashion brands for life?

I like to rotate from season to season. But for FW20 I’m feeling Telfar, AMI Paris, Casablanca, Blue Marble, and Prada.

Favourite luxury house of all time?

Fendi’s FW20 Show Collection was sensational

What inspires your content?

Aesthetic, colour co-ordination, history to fashion. There’s a lot of time spent on attention to detail when piecing outfits together, and that’s a big aspect of what I do and what I enjoy the most about creating content.

Favourite collaborative work so far?

Just confirmed a campaign for Dsquared2 which is crazy! I’m looking forward to that one!

What motivates you every day?

Now that I’m a position to influence people, I think this year I’ve realised I have the opportunity to be able to create change. Something I’m grateful and appreciative for. To wake up every day is a blessing, especially at a time when a lot of the world is going through hard times. To utilise as many hours a day as I can, make my family proud, and hopefully, one day build something creatively, to make a difference to the world positively, motivates me every day to work hard 24/7.

Where do you see yourself in future?

I would like to take my interpretation of streetwear back to Ghana one day.

Baggy, Old School, Versatile

One word to describe your content?

Non-Identical

Who inspires your personal style?

To be honest over the years my views on fashion has changed a lot and I’ve always tried to find my style and I’ve switched multiple on times to try and find myself. But at this current moment the A$AP Rocky, Pharrell Williams, Nigo are the people I look at most as I feel like my dress sense is sometimes similar to them, and the majority of their fits I would rock.

Top 5 fashion brands for life?

Stone Island, ACW, Billionaires Boy Club/Icecream, Vintage Bape, Off white, LV

Favourite luxury house of all time?

LV hands down.

What inspires your content?

To be honest, nobody really inspires me with my content, I obviously look at different influencers to get inspiration with backgrounds and to see what the latest trend is etc. When it comes to content I generally really enjoy it and love posting and I try and make every post different so it’s not the same thing over and over again, as people want to see different colours, backgrounds, shoes, etc

Favourite collaborative work so far?

Hugo Boss, Gillette and Criminal Damage

What motivates you every day?

Myself

Where do you see yourself in future?

I’m not really sure, one of my goals is to create a brand that can be worn by everyone and is versatile so it can be worn by a wide range of people and is not targeted for one audience. I also see myself making it on billboards soon but it’s all up to me and my work and what type of content I’m putting out there.

I think it definitely has to involve my own brand at some point whether that be womenswear or collaborative with Maddox on a children’s brand. When putting an outfit together I’m always in my head imagining new designs I’d love to bring to life so to be able to contribute that to fashion big or small has to be the dream.
