Nigerian designers Tolu Coker, Priya Ahluwalia, and Torishéju Dumi take center stage as the empowering cover stars of the latest British Vogue issue. Beyond merely embracing sustainability as a trend, these remarkable individuals have woven it into the very fabric of their enterprises.

Within the pages of the January 2024 edition of British Vogue, Julia Hobbs engages with these three exceptionally talented designers, all of Nigerian heritage, each wielding their distinct design signatures while sharing a unified commitment. Julia, holding the role of Acting European Fashion Features Director & Senior Fashion Projects Editor at British Vogue, delves into their creative ethos. The cover captures these brilliant women sporting subtle no-makeup makeup looks, each showcasing a distinctive hairstyle. See below for a glimpse:

Tolu Coker and Torishéju Dumi are each wearing all pieces from their eponymous brands — Tolu Coker and Torishéju respectively, while Priya Ahluwalia is wearing a jacket from her brand Ahluwalia and Woolmark Prize Collection, a top from Ahluwalia and earrings from By Pariah Fine Jewellery.

Earlier in September, 2023 designer Tolu Coker staged her debut runway show — a sensual, tailoring-inflected exploration of Yoruba culture. Now on this January 2024 issue of British Vogue, she reveals that it was just the beginning.
Early on, I conditioned myself that my definition of success is about slow, steady growth and longevity.
Coker is joined by Torisheju, whose SS24 collection closed Paris Fashion Week, and Priya Ahluwalia, who has long emphasised that sustainability isn’t “just about the yarn you choose”, but driving social and environmental change, too.
