Brand Profile

Designer Olubiyi Thomas was born in Lagos, Nigeria and moved to Glasgow, Scotland at the age of 3 as a refugee.
After graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2013, he joined Kering's Alexander McQueen as a men's patterner.
He then worked as a dress patterner and dress shoe designer at Sarah Burton before founding his brand Olubiyi Thomas in 2016.


...Concept.

The concept of the brand is multiculturalism, incorporating the cultures of three regions: his roots in West Africa, the Scottish Highlands he has known since childhood, and London, where he currently creates.
The collection mixes the indigenous culture and customs of each region with the glamorous costumes of the Victorian era, with their many layers.

Another major pillar of the brand is sustainability.
With a strong suspicion of the discriminatory tendencies towards black people, mass production, mass waste, and exploitation of producers, Olubiyi Thomas runs her brand with an approach that is the opposite of that of the modern fashion business.

He uses only discarded clothing and home décor scraps, dead stock from small hand weaving converters in Scotland and England, and indigenous materials from his roots in West Africa.

Inspired by the style of the Victorian era, this shirt is also designed to be worn with long sleeves fastened with cuffs to give a sense of volume.

This hoodie features a pattern in which the fabric from the back continues to the front and is constructed as a single sleeve.

 



Black is made from vintage rags, while Grey and Blue are made from dead stock fabrics from a Scottish hand-woven converter.

 



The Blue color has been waxed to protect it from rain, as seen on workwear from the Scottish Highlands, giving the fabric a solid feel.

This item is also available in a different material for the 22AW season.
The color is Black, and the hood is made of pile fabric.
