Top Button

I released my menswear lookbook last week, and obviously couldn’t leave the females out!

This collection is kinda androgynous, but still has quite a few girly items with classic silhouettes. I’ve always loved shirts (and often get teased for having my top button done up at all times!), and so I remixed what is usually thought of as a male item of clothing and built the collection around that.

Photography and editing were done by Double E Studios, who did an amazing job!

Have a look at the pics below, hope you guys like it!

Palm Wine and Teacups

NEW LOOKBOOOOOOOOK!!!!!!

I’m so excited to release this new lookbook! The name is really weird, right? Let me explain.

So I’m always talking about how Friday Born Designs is an amalgamation of Ghanaian and British culture, and this lookbook is following that same theme. The shoot was done in a typical British pub, with a typical British guy doing typical British things, but he isn’t dressed like your typical British guy (for those who don’t know, palm wine is a traditional African drink).

I designed this over a few months last year, sourcing the fabrics from London and various markets in Ghana. It took me a while to release it because I spent some time getting the right inspiration for the shoot, and I had to take breaks for exams and uni work etc.

But now it’s done, I absolutely love it.

Hayley Bennett did an amazing job of bringing my idea to life in the pictures. Have a look at them here, hope you like it!

Dubai!

I recently took a trip to the United Arab Emirates! I had such an amazing time, splitting my time between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. We behaved like typical tourists, visiting the sights (Dubai Mall, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the Burj Khalifa to name a few), did a good amount of shopping and spent some time chilling in the desert with camels and climbing sand dunes!

Like every other time I travel, I tried to spend a good amount of time getting better at using my camera. Have a look at some of my favourite pics below.

With love,
