Being the youngest to do so, the founder of the line Head Of State+ premiered Genesis at Men’s Fashion Week in New York on July 11.
“Genesis is the translation of Afro-futurism portrayed by the likes of Parliament-Funkadelic and Sun Ra through the lens of West African youth – while at the same time celebrating the vibrancy of West African youth culture in the ‘70s and drawing parallels to modern time. The continuous homage to Fela Kuti is also portrayed,” Abijako explained.
