I am an accessories designer and my work largely focuses on diversifying the image of 'African' design in the western world to reflect Nigerian material culture. I do a bulk of this through repurposing everyday items especially from Nigeria and incorporating them into my designs.
I am most interested how Women's empowerment causes ubich focus on trade-skills because these allow for cultural activism as well as sovereignty and independence .
