Banke Kuku’s brilliant loungewear and eveningwear designs have found favour with Naomi Campbell, Kelly Rowland and Davido, and she recently collaborated on a capsule collection with Gabrielle Union. There’s such an energy to her work, bringing forth her Nigerian heritage as well as her time spent in London (she graduated from Central St Martin’s and Chelsea College of Art and Design).

Currently Banke Kuku is available at Galeries Lafayette Doha, Moda Operadi, Farfetch, Threads, and independent boutiques across Africa. Her interior designs are available through Selfridges, Aynhoe Park Hotel Oxford, Le Bon Marché Paris, and Bazar et Grand Manger Tokyo. Check out more at her website.
