LAGOS SPACE PROGRAMME

Lagos Space Programme is a non-binary design project exploring African futures through lens informed by slow fashion and by dissecting the intersection of Thompson’s life experiences, thereby communicating ideas of individuality, proposing new ways to understand beauty by collaborating with indigenous artisans such as Bronze casters from the ancient city of Benin to women Adire dyers from Osogbo. Thompson aims to continue centuries old conversations around design practices— Knowledge transfer, acknowledgment of cultural, traditional techniques reinterpreted in modern context are at the core of the brand’s ethos as well as sustainability , reducing inequalities amongst communities, fair pay, local sourcing, responsible production and consumption as Pre-Order models are strictly followed.
