ABOUT THE BRAND

A L A N I, founded by Emmanuel in 2020, is a design venture born out of Lagos, Nigeria balancing luxury techniques with streetwear elements, showcased as ready-to-wear items/collections.

Designed from a narrative standpoint A L A N I is both a reflection of modern and heritage African ART and Culture to embrace Africa.

A L A N I combines European iconography with African nostalgic references, a visual commentary on Lagos/London style and culture itself. 

With no formal training specific to fashion design, Emmanuel credits his understanding of garments and construction to growing up loving fashion and always creating 1 of 1  unique customised pieces for himself, providing a foundation and understanding of how to build each piece and the subsequent stories told with each item/collection.
