KESHO WAZO ON FASHION IN RELATION TO COMMUNITY

Guest Blog Post From Space Blog

The Portland youth art collective Kesho Wazo teamed up with SPACE at the beginning of March for a photoshoot of SPACE’s new merch. Creative Director, Daveed Thete, came to us with the idea as a way of celebrating our relationship and exploring Kesho Wazo’s interest in fashion as a means of communication. In the past year SPACE and Kesho Wazo have collaborated on a Kesho Wazo Showcase, beat workshops with musician Mo Nuñez, culminating in a performance at Waking Windows, and a Streetwear Fashion Show with visual artists Nick Carter (asmr homegoods). Below Daveed, and Kesho Wazo member and model Wazo Alma share their vision of fashion in relation to community.
