Protecting Your Spirit and Love as a Language with Designer Bubu Ogisi

The Lagos-based designer identifies as a storyteller—and her fashion brand functions as a part of her personal narrative. She uses Africa as a central point of inspiration, while literally and figuratively weaving spirituality and conscientiousness into her designs. Her work has been featured in London, Paris, Lagos, Durban, and Bogota fashion week and has been exhibited throughout Africa and Europe. In this episode, she discusses being a Black woman in fashion’s white space, holding privacy sacred, and the goddesses that inspire her daily.
