Set against a Lagos’s urban landscape, pastel walls, empty street and raffia backdrop, Daniel Obasi releases a dreamy film in “Embers of Bloom”.
“Let’s pretend no one else is here”
Inspired by friendship and the fantasy of becoming someone else through fashion. The film is a visual experience of what finding your self could look like, a momentary realization and escape through emptiness, expressions and metaphors into something different, something that makes you bloom!
Shot in Lagos Nigeria, the fashion film displays a fair share of Nigerian designs including Gozel Green, Titi Belo, FRUCHE and Gogoya.
The soundtrack Collide is part of the latest EP “Unseen” by Nigerian musician Mary Akpa.
