World of WearableArt for L’Officiel USA

Every year New Zealand hosts the World of WearableArt (WOW) Fashion/Art Exhibition, where designers from all over the world create intricately designed garments for the chance to win the Supreme WOW Award at the exhibition’s extravagant Awards Night ceremony.

This year WOW celebrated 30 years of “taking art off the wall and onto the human form” and in celebration of 30 years, I made it down to Wellington to catch the Awards Night ceremony and watch the eccentrically awesome display. I then worked with the WOW team to select and shoot some of my favorite pieces from the show.

The amount of time and work put into each garment, to me, was reminiscent of the attention and detail put in by the famous ateliers of Paris and Milan to couture garments. So, I wanted to shoot these pieces as such, bold, avant-garde, and bare––a true welding of the worlds of art and fashion.

Nigerian Creative Roundtable for COVETEUR

-- Photos by Daniel Obasi // Styled by Alexander-Julian (all clothing by young Nigerian designers)

 
 

THE NIGERIAN CREATIVE ROUNDTABLE

for COVETEUR.


 

Gifted with a deep and rich culture, today’s African artists have imagined up a world where these traditions are brought into the 21st century, a cultural aesthetic popularly known as Afromodernism. Nigeria has served as a fashion and music hub for this culture cultivation, leading the pack of African creatives. So I went to Nigeria and gathered some of the new class of influential creative artists for a roundtable shot by Daniel Obasi, the 23 year old photographer/art director, who has been capturing the beauty of these creative minds, including his own, for the past few years. They say humanity started in Africa, if so, Nigeria was definitely where they got fresh first.
