So it’s been 8 months in Lagos, Nigeria so far. I’ve met so many interesting people, still trying to make friends, had more downs than ups but the few ups are always worth the downs. I’ve had great opportunities come by me … and many kept on going by lol. But I’m still feel more exhilarated everyday. It still feels so different from all my years in the States repeating the same routine. A lot of days, I wake up here with no clue what new obstacle I may face (can get pretty disheartening at times), but I think I’m really going to try to stick this one out and hopefully be in a position to showcase more of the beauty of home.

Ikiré Jones F/W ‘14 “Of Saints & Savages”

Photography by Rog Walker.

"To whom it may concern. This is a challenge to the zealously held belief that Africa is a monolithic village in need of perpetual saving. This is an open assault upon the delusions of those who cry endlessly of desolate stomachs and doorways darkened by disease. This is a public disavowing of all who think the cradle of civilization has nothing more to offer than unmolested raw materials and an army of open palms awaiting aid.

Further, this is a disclaimer that upon becoming dissatisfied with the myriad fictions which are daily presented to us as fact, we have henceforth resolved to tell our own stories. Loudly. No longer will we dine on a bounty of half-baked biases. No more will we sip from hoses gushing hypocrisy and hogwash. There are those who look past Africa’s beauty in the hopes of seeing savagery; so that they may preen and posture as saints. We are the children of tomorrow. And we are here to assure that their disappointment awaits.”
