Yoruba for “we have arrived.” African photographer and creative director Oye Diran travels back in time to the 60s. Reminiscing on old family photos he cites “curated memories from his heritage as inspiration.” It reminds me of Kehinde Wiley, when I went to see his Byzantine exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum. We were there, but never represented. When you think of Africa in the 60s what fashion originally comes to mind?
