Larry Jay’s A/W19 Collection Mixes Different Styles, Attitudes and Cultures to Create Garments for Everyone.


Larry Jay’s A/W19 collection inspired by people who live around him, how they explore their cultures and personal styles in relation to global fashion. The cuts and selection of fabrics for the collection were inspired by the style and ways of living reflected in their attitudes, habits and tastes, moral standards, socioeconomic level and values. The garments are a reflection of the past, present or future and how the people’s attitudes and way of dressing have changed through time.
Sported in the collection is slightly thick and heavy cotton brocade which was hand tied and dyed by some local Guinean artisans based in Ghana to very soft and loose silk and cotton fabrics, fleece, spandex,synthetic fur material and leather.
These materials are put together in such a way that allows flexibility and the diverse ways of clothing and styling for the different people in the world. Larry Jay’s  signature material, JUTE which really defines his aesthetic is very prominent in the collection. In all his collections Larry makes use of locally and ethically produced handmade tie and dye fabrics as a way of championing indigenous fabric.

I am an avid traveler with a background in copywriting, social media management, art exhibition and music festival curation. I am a huge bookworm who not only enjoys getting lost in books, but I also enjoy writing on topics such as travel, art and fashion. I am interested in working in any projects relating to copywriting for small businesses, fiction writing, curating exhibitions for visual artists in Africa. I am also keen to work with small businesses in developing their social media strategies. Africa is my first love and I am currently having a great time exploring her.
