Born in Nigeria, and having moved to the United States in his early teens, Soji Solarin’s work speaks to the malleability of black being; in both the contexts of Africa and America.

Fueled by research and the design­er’s fundamen­tal under­stan­ding of the differing itera­tions of blackness, the epo­nymous label SOJI SOLARIN was founded in Los Angeles, in 2016. Shortly after the designer’s gradu­ation from the Academy of Art Uni­ver­sity in San Francisco.

Now based in Berlin, Soji Solarin was awarded the Global Talents award in Fall 2019 and debuted his Spring 2020 collection at MBFW Moscow.
