The Turning Wheel: An Afternoon with Ozwald Boateng

Fri 31 Jan 2020

For a quarter of a century, Ozwald Boateng has been a trailblazer and innovator in global fashion. He opened an eponymous store off Savile Row in 1995 was appointed the first exclusive Creative Director of Givenchy Homme in 2003, creating its first ever ready-to-wear line before opening the largest shop on Savile Row in 2007. A lover of the moving image, Ozwald Boateng’s career is distinguished further from his peers by the iconic films he makes to accompany his work. He has also maintained an interest in philanthropy and advocacy, particularly on the African continent. 

Using a combination of discussion, film and archive photography, Ozwald Boateng makes a compelling argument for the relevance of fashion - how it intersects with our everyday lives, its roots in history and heritage – and how it helps shape our vision of the future.
