Interview by: Kene Nwatu
In the light of the first Vlisco&co event in Lagos, we interviewed Art Director Daniel Obasi about his work, the concept of his afro-futuristic short film ‘An Alien in Town’ and the collaboration with Vlisco.
Together with Vlisco, Obasi created the short film, showcasing the story of a contemporary and suburb culture with an afro-futuristic twist, using the streets of Lagos as a backdrop. The story follows two stylishly clad humans who take on the responsibility of teaching a new found alien how to fit within the Lagos metropolis. Bringing fashion out to the streets. It’s vintage, retro-inspired, colourful and focuses on the energy that comes from African fashion. Click here to watch the short film and explore the work of Daniels’ creative mind!
