Sustainability has become fashion’s favourite term in the recent past. From runway shows to larger than life events, artists have been experimenting with the latest trends with mindful consumption of resources. And a true blue example of this is Nigerian designer Adejoke Lasisi, who is the internet’s favourite creator now. Converting plastic waste into beautiful clothes and home accessories, Adejoke’s creations are intricately designed and weaved for them to look this stunning on our screens. Founder of the label Planet 3R, Adejoke skilfully puts to use her inner zest to save mother Earth. An environmentalist at heart, Adejoke brings home the gully waste, that majorly constitutes of plastic and weaves it together with traditional Yoruba fabric called aso-oke to create stunning designs. Winning accolades for her work, and contributions to save the environment, the conscious designer has been a recipient of many awards including a grant award from the Vice President of Nigeria.

Her product lineup ranges from backpacks, shoes, foldable wooden tables, diaries, tiffin box sleeves, accessories and much more. The idea to work towards the environment, was fed by her observations of the world she lived in. Looking at the planet turning into a wasteland, was something Adejoke wanted to stop from happening. Hence, she took the craft of weaving to another level, with an idea to create sustainable fashion. While, Adejoke has been a source of inspiration for people around her, she has been spreading the knowledge through a class of students that she trains. 

Isn’t this amazing? What do you think?
