Another opportunity came to dress The Compozers for the first night of the FuseODG UK tour. Working with stylist Racheal Lasamba, This time around i decided to go for a more toned down dashiki inspired look using a african printed fabric, mixing that with the Like Leather material, giving the complete look a more street wear vibe still sticking to a squared "play on the Block T" theme
Check out the images below
What is a Dashiki?
"The dashiki is a colorful men's garment widely worn in West Africa that covers the top half of the body. It has formal and informal versions and varies from simple draped clothing to fully tailored suits. A common form is a loose-fitting pullover garment, with an ornate V-shaped collar, and tailored and embroidered neck and sleeve lines"
See two examples of a below:
I had to pull together the four looks for the Band (Compozers) in a day, if given more time i would have added more detail to my Dashiki inspired T's but thats the name of this fashion game "LastMin.com" is known all too well but with saying that, the outcome is always worth it knowing that the wear'ee (you see what did there? "wear'ee" lol) is/are happy with what is presented to them. As a designer or even as a creative in whatever field, there is always more that can be done or added but sometimes less is actually more.
Check out the image below, this is another example of two Dashiki inspired T-shirts designed by Veeci
