While I was in Nigeria for Christmas, I had the chance to work with filmmaker Abba Makama of Jungle Tribe on a short film for Post Imperial’s summer collection.

Party of Ministers is a fashion short that documents a set of ministers with a knack for the ridiculous. Each minister’s pocket square is an extension of their personality.

I hope you all enjoy

coupled with samples taken from the African culture, the whole still has a modern flavour, showing us, once again, the extent of the
duo’s influences.

here is visuals to accompany all the awesomeness

Oh Nigeria. I made my first visit in 14 yrs in the midst of your toll-gate fiasco and left on the eve of your Occupy moment. It has been a long time and I am glad to have been in the middle of what seems to be positive change within the country.

As Post-Colonial subjects of the British Empire, most Nigerians have social ties with that of the Union Jack.

Yes… I will gladly represent the obnoxious American thoughout my stay in Lagos.
