Kevin Allwood, on bespoke, luxury, and giving back
when i started designing in 1986 my only mission. save the world. help Africa. bring work to the carrebian. somehow find a way that fashion and art could help the huge problem facing black folks in the world.
fast forward 35 years later and i realize in hindsight how true the phase is ( you don't know what you don't know).
so what is my mission now.
pretty much the same only with a bit of maturity thrown in. along with the mantra of know thyself.
SOMETIMES IN ORDER TO KNOW
WHERE YOU ARE GOING, YOU HAVE TO KNOW TO WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN.
