Culture Quake

For London-based designer Tolu Coker, fashion doesn't start or end with aesthetics. Instead, it’s a portal to socially conscious storytelling. Since 2018, she has captivated the fashion world with her breakout eponymous clothing label, expressing her African diasporic identity through youthful yet politically aware collections. At the same time, Coker has asserted Black visibility in other media, creating commissioned illustrations for the Tate Modern, celebrating African beauty and the Black Panther movement in a series of collages for H&M and Loewe, and challenging Eurocentric viewpoints with her in-depth documentaries and fashion films. And at 26, she’s just getting started. “I think about the way in which narratives are written, who controls narratives, and what they’re trying to portray—not just in fashion but in society in general,” she tells GRAY. “Identity and narrative are things that I’m always questioning in my work.”

At-Home Hair Color

It is happening. We are winning at self-isolation and have come to terms with the lack of many things. We are embracing what matters in life, yet, we all have mirrors. There are dark roots of natural color most of us haven’t seen since college now forming some sort of halo around our heads. Or gray hairs peeking out. Uh oh. And with quarantine still happening and salons closed for however long, it may be time to take self-care to the next level and do some at-home magical care and update our hair color!

Made in The USA

After you carelessly rummage through your closet in frustration and hop in your car after claiming you have nothing to wear, you probably end up at your nearest shopping mall. The first store you see is Forever 21, a store with trendy clothing and cheap price tags. Maybe next you’ll go to H&M in search of a perfect internship outfit.

Repurposing Forgotten Fashion and Giving it New Life

I threw away a lot of my old shoes that I no longer wore or found a purpose in keeping as a teenager. It wasn’t until I started thinking more deeply about how to partake in sustainable practices when it comes to fashion and how to hold onto things that didn’t necessarily need to be thrown away as I got older.

For the Grooms

"The groom is likely to be at ease ordering from multiple online retailers, and deciding on a suit in the comfort of his own home. Due to the efficiency and the plethora of choice available online, at an inexpensive price. A relaxed fit suit will be a key trend for 2020. As we see a shift in both the bride and groom wanting a practical design, that they can wear for the entire wedding day. Waistcoats are becoming less trendy for the groom, as they are opting for the comfort of a two piece suit."
