The Style

This t-shirt dress, is a cross between a dress and a cap-sleeve t-shirt.  It has a mid-long length with a medium fit, and with generous stretch.  It can be worn either on or off the shoulder.  It wears well by itself as a dress, or with leggings, and even over a pair of jeans.

 The Image

This T-shirt dress features an original afro futuristic painting ‘Bloom’ by Nigerian artist Komi Olaf. 

Komi Olaf (Nigerian,1985) is a visual artist, poet and architectural designer who is best known for his ability to represent, both visually and poetically, the complexities of the world and generation he finds himself within. In recent years,

Komi’s art has been shaped by a cultural and artistic movement known as Afrofuturism, which explores African and African diasporic cultures in intersection with technology.

Through the lens of Afrofuturism, Komi has been able to transmit his sense of pride in the African cultures from which his perspectives emerge, while reflecting his interest in using artistry to reconnect Black people to a shared sense of history, resilience and strength.

The Fabric

The garment is made from 100% polyester, and is ethically made in the UK. It also has smooth stitching, and an exceptional fine and comfortable finish.
