Little Update

Wow, using blogger seems weird right now. Haven't posted in a while

Nothing much has happened whilst i've been eloping with Tumblr.

I can't even remember where I left off. 

..checks last post

ahh yeah that photoshoot. That was fun but yeah I think I'll be back to regular posting within the next couple of weeks. Once my life gets kickstarted again. i.e I move back to London. I've had to take a year off from my menswear course @ LCF so I'm trying to sort out an internship at Wonderland Magazine aside of getting a job. 

Meanwhile, If anyone has been slowly transitioning to Tumblr or has one here are ALL mine.

I've been busy:

Black Culture & Black Women

Mostly Menswear & personal stuff

Womenswear (Work in Progress)

Hair really(work in progress)

Poetry & philosophy

& Twitter: Richardkolapo

Would be rude not to leave you with something so

Here's where I'm at with my hair at the moment:

& here's what I'm looking to move onto:

Yes! Roger from Sister Sister


Oh, is anyone going to LFW? I tried to apply but nothing through the post.

The bomber boys with @Ntando Brown

D.I.Y Tri-Fabric Vest

This took a long time to do because I get over excited and rush things having said that the finished vest looks like It's been properly manufactured .....well kind of.


First step cut under the armhole of the string vest or whatever point you want the 2fabric to be overlocked on.

 Stage 1

& In the same position in your T-shirt. Try to match the curve or line you cut on both.

Stage 2

Then you pin everything together aligning the side seams of both pieces. 

Blah blah blah....  

Finished Product

Threw this look together mix of Scientist, Hood Dude x Inner-City Gent.

Bare sweaty because I ride into Uni. nowadays waiting at the bus stop is for punks.

Front View


Made using: 

1)A string vest
2) A H&M black Tee 
& 3) Tracksuit bottom sports fabric

Would anyone actually wear this apart from me though?

P.S I'm making more of my bleach dye Tees as shown
