African Prints: “They’ve been an obsession of mine since I was asked to take part in an Africa-inspired exhibition for the London shop Darkroom. Darkroom’s co-founder Rhonda Drakeford has an amazing collection of African fabrics and jewelry, and it inspired me to spend hours in African fabric shops in Willesden, Dalston, and Brixton. I became aware of how modern and contemporary the designs were, although they’re used in very traditional dress. What I love most about the fabrics is that they’re so bashful and unapologetic.”
