Lost in yesterday holds in itself, self-evident truth that all men are created equal and they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness and it is within each’ duty, to provide for their individual future security.
This capsule collection was created to celebrate Nigeria’s independence takes a look at the structure of things in the country of the most populous black country in the continent, even after 60 years of gaining its independence, still feels like only a few days with little or no real-time change to show for it.
It explores a range of emotions going through the mind of an average Nigerian youth who despite having all odds being stacked up against him/her and having to create order out of a very chaotic environment still strives for an individual sense of freedom.
The capsule collection in its way takes an Imagination of a Nigeria in which, without compulsion or external discipline, every man, from self-discipline, does his duty the best he can, asks ‘how can I serve’ before ‘what is in it for me’, treats his neighbor as he wants to be treated, and focuses solely on being a good man, regardless of the next man.
