In Conversation with Adeju Thompson

On this episode, I have a conversation with Adeju Thompson founder of Lagos Space Programme, a non-binary, luxury design project exploring African futures. Adeju describes Lagos Space Programme as an ethical movement built on a foundation of collaboration, shared ideas, chosen family and craftsmanship. Adeju's sources of inspiration are vast, from Yohji Yamamoto to architecture, to the New York Ballroom scene of the 80s to Yoruba cosmology. In this episode, we discuss the importance of preserving and celebrating Yoruba textile traditions, navigating the fashion industry as a queer Nigerian, and their experiences exploring South-Western Nigeria.
