The feeling of not just pride alone but of strength and renowned dignity" creative director of the eponymous brand Lanre Da Silva Ajayi talks about the collection.

"Everything is a symbol with meanings. Images don't just appear in my work as random decorative patterns alone. There's a thought behind everything, a purpose to communicate" the talented artist, Ayoola who collaborated with the designer offered, according to him "everything is a language form to enhance or catalyse a discussion and to him fashion has never been more essential in creating a dialogue than now, right here, in this age in which we live in". ‎
