Print and Fashion Designer Elizabeth Yemi Akingbade graduated from the University of The Arts London in 2013. She soon launched a fashion line, Yemzi, with a small range of printed organic tops. Influenced by a British upbringing with a working-class white foster family in the English seaside, she dreamily re-contextualizes her newly-embraced rich Nigerian culture with her West African-inspired ready-to-wear line.

The designer’s first collection, presented in 2015, set the premise for African inspired, print-led, contemporary designs. Tired of seeing Dutch wax enthusiasts limited by the same designs, Elizabeth-Yemi digitally prints exclusive ethically conscious luxury fabrics guided by the aesthetic of the West African diaspora.
