About me

Adebayo Oke-Lawal has been designing since the age of 10, and since officially entering the fashion industry, he’s dabbled in writing and styling, working with African designers, actors, pop stars and even magazines but design is his greatest passion, and since starting the label in 2011, he’s been hard at work trying to bring Orange Culture to the world. Adebayo Oke-Lawal describes Orange Culture as a “movement” more than a clothing line, for a creative class of men who he describes as “self aware , expressive, explorative, art-loving nomad[s].” The label previously produced womenswear options, but Oke-Lawal says he’s since decided to focus on the fellas. Combining classic and contemporary western silhouettes (like collared button-ups and lapel-less blazers) with African sensibilities, Oke-Lawal creates offerings for modern men who like a little flair, and of course: color.Orange Culture is a heady mixture of Nigerian inspired silhouettes, print fabrics and contemporary urban street wear. Since it's inception the brand and it's creative director have been featured in Vogue , Elle, Marie Claire, Voice of America, Financial Times, Wings, and the list goes on and on. the brand has been a finalist for huge design platforms like the LVMH (Louis Vuitton and Moët Hennesey ) prize - where he was picked alongside 29 of the hugest emerging designers from all over the world out of 1221 . The brand was also selected by Vogue Italia and GQ to present at the fashion buzz in Florence and by Ethical Fahion Initiative and pitti uomo to be one of the first menswear brands to show on the runway in Florence during fashion week.
