“You have to let your clothes speak for you before you open your mouth,” Adebayo Oke-Lawal, the founder of Orange Culture says in a recent interview.

Orange Culture is trying to change the face of fashion in Nigeria. Adebayo Oke-Lawal cannot believe Lagos is not a big player in global fashion and he is out to fix that once and for all.
Founding Orange Culture in 2011, his androgynous menswear brand has served as a vehicle for expressing his misfit masculinity, which challenges Nigeria’s rigid gender norms – such as the idea that men are not allowed to cry.
