In this video short by Nicolas Jenkins, men's designer Ozwald Boateng -- the first black tailor on Savile Row -- discusses the history of his style, from school uniforms to the 'Afro-pean' Dutch-via-Ghana fabrics used in his more recent collections. Boateng, who was creative director of menswear at Givenchy from 2004 to 2007, is the subject of a newly-released documentary, twelve years in the making, from Varon Bonicos. Check out Jenkins' video above.
