Ikire Jones x TEDGlobal: Celebrate Culture through Clothing

Wale Oyejide, the founder of the fashion label, Ikire Jones, spoke at TEDGlobal on how something as simple as clothing and fashion can be a strong tool for change!

“To be African is to be inspired by culture and to be filled with undying hope for the future,” says the designer and TED Fellow. With his label IkirĂ© Jones (you’ll see their work in Marvel’s “Black Panther”), he uses classic design to showcase the elegance and grace of often-marginalized groups, through beautifully cut clothing that tells a story.
