That City Life

The last few weeks have given me the opportunity to really explore London. I draw inspiration from things I see and experience. I Have attended a few exhibitions and gone to some unconventional places. I will keeping exploring as long as I am healthy and alive ^.^

P5060095 - School's Out.jpgThe first event was the Kenzo exhibition around New Bond street, London. It was a collaboration between the Kenzo brand and two Nigerian artists, Akinola Davies and Ruth Ossai for a new in-store exhibition. The scale of the exhibition was very small but it was refreshing to see work by Nigerian artist in such a renowned fashion brand.

“Shot in Nsukka, one of the Igbo communities of Nigeria (where the Igbo half of Ossai’s Igbo/Yorkshire dual heritage hails from), these images showcase the various rites, rituals and ceremonies involved with being young in this society – from hair to beauty pageants. These definitely aren’t the perfectly coiffed Miss Universe affairs, though – rather what Davies was keen to reiterate as a celebration of “young black Nigerian bodies (by) capturing them celebrating Igbo culture and traditions, showing that beauty is always present when there is a commitment to the celebration of culture.”  Dazed Digital

It was a clever idea to have it in-store, this gave anyone who came to view the exhibition the chance to see all the clothes and accessories the brand had to offer.
