For Fall, the designer posed the question: What does it mean to be a black woman? “[The collection] is quite dark, actually—as usual,” she laughed on a call from her native Nigeria. Mulling on that identity in all its nuance and power, as well as tropes like the angry black woman, Osakwe turned an introspective eye on the idea of silenced voices. “There’s really nothing I can do but be proud of who I am and just keep trying to make people see the beauty in me and my culture and all of what I stand for,” she offered. And beauty there was here, aplenty.
