When IAM teamed up with Vlisco to create a special capsule collection in Nigeria, our designer of choice to collaborate with simply had to be Bubu Ogisi. Her minimal, often androgynous, and always modern designs have been pushing the boundaries of fashion in Lagos since she launched I.Am. Isigo here in 2013. The brand is now available from her Victoria Island showroom (which also doubles up as a party spot and creative hub) and has secured stockists in Accra, Cape Town, Geneva, Paris and New York. Her pieces are simple and effortless to wear while allowing you to revel in luxurious fabrics and heritage detailing informed by Ogisi’s troubadour tendencies and interest in exploring African cultures.
