Africa Inspires!: Designer Ozwald Boateng

Few people can really shift a paradigm. As the man who revolutionized the classic British bespoke suit, Ozwald Boateng is one of those people. He brought amplified color, and an elevated level of design to typical tailoring. The former creative director of menswear at Givenchy, the British Ghanaian has dressed Will Smith, Mick Jagger and Jamie Foxx. And, he is largely credited with bringing custom tailoring to a new generation. His ingenuity and talent have earned him a retrospective in London’s prestigious V&A museum and a multi-part documentary series on the Sundance Channel. He doesn’t have a store in the US yet, but if you’re looking to make a trip to Europe in the near future, you should start saving for more than just the flight.
