At the beginning of this year I travelled to my parents home town and village which is in Enugu. I’m based in Lagos, Nigeria whereas my parents are originally from Enugu. My people are from a small village in Enugu which cannot even be found on the map. And during the holidays my family went visiting to celebrate the New Years with them. In my village town, the culture is so rich. The people vary from craftsmen to fishermen to dancers and market women. They perform these domestic works as their sole means of providing for themselves and their family. My series surrounds the members of my family’s generation and a few other members of the village. I have showcased some of these pieces with the one of my great grandmother getting acknowledged. Enjoy – Ifunanya Paulinus

Describe your style(i.e what type of clothing are you into, and if you collect anything, what it is and why ?, where do you get your inspiration from ): I don’t have a specific style. If it looks nice then why not lol. I love clothes that make me look older.

What do you do for fun? I’m a very reserved person and i don’t really do much. I love watching series and taking pictures.

Favourite quote: I don’t have one. I like quite a lot, mostly inspirational ones.
