Creating iconic futuristic designs has been the hallmark of famed British designer of Ghanaian descent, Ozwald Boateng. During the year, he visited Nigerian and joined a group of the well established and emerging designers to showcase his latest designs at the Arise Fashion Week. The designs were described by many as top-notch with a touch of Africa flavour in them.
Aside from the applauds that he received in Nigeria for those designs, the future is, even more, brighter as news of his agreed deal with British Airways to design uniforms for the crew to mark the company’s hundred-years of operation was published in a statement.
Breaking the information to the world, Ozwald wrote; “I am excited about creating the new uniform for such an iconic brand. I want to create a personalised experience between what I create and what the wearer experiences.” To make this one of the designs that will be remembered, he has vowed to create something iconic, which will first be tested by the crew, arrive at a conclusion before finally producing all the designs.
Obviously, this is another great piece of achievement by an African and we are proud.
