                    released in 2013 and it enjoyed massive online promotion. Temitayo has
                            three collections to his credit, but the first part of his 2014 collective,
               themed "SOLACE" was his defining moment as a designer, the reviews were so
                      humbling it encouraged him to want to do more. His approach to life is
                      “minimalist with a sporty twist, a mix of subtleness and fun”. He
                discovered his love for fashion at a young age like most designers but made
                         it different by pursuing a career in it. He launched himself fully into
                 fashion when he interned at Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2012 which later
                             propelled him to starting his own brand. His creative designs has been
                    featured on, Blanc, Guardian Newspaper, Punch Newspaper,
                   Ynaija, One Nigerian Boy,,,, just
                    to mention a few. His stronghold as that designer in pursuit of passion has
                               been never to divorce himself from
