Nyorh Agwe, is a Cameroonian-born, New York-based fashion designer, who explores her identity through her beautiful, multifaceted, creations. For her latest collection, “Leftovers,” Agwe employed a range of recycled materials as an expression of her cross-cultural upbringing from spending parts of her formative years in Cameroon, Italy, and the United States.
“Through fashion I was able to reconnect myself with my birth culture and am in a space now where I have embraced all of my nationalities instead of standing by just one,” Agwe, 20, tells OKAYAFRICA. “My work is bold, colorful, funky, detailed, eclectic, and often in one way or another speaks of my cross cultural experiences as an African growing up anywhere except in Africa.”
