“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things.
They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Rob Siltanen
The best that humanity has to offer, in terms of emotions, struggles, hopes, feelings is by telling others the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, whether in books, notes, quotes or literature. Sometimes we forget who we are. We forget what we are made of, and who created us in His own image.
We lose touch with our inner gods and our ability to see things different. We forget our sixth sense and trust others for ideas. You don’t have to make sense. Logic is predictable.
REBEL BY ASAKE
Known for channeling her African heritage into every designed piece since her debut in 2001, in May 2017 Nigerian designer Asake Oge debuted her diffusion line Rebel by Asake at Africa Fashion Week Nigeria 2017 runway, continuing her aesthetics of bold colors, prints and tailored silhouettes that are totally me. Comfortable enough for work, and to let the little rebel in me shine!
The older I get, the more comfortable I want my clothing to be. So this is how I look every other day I’m out and about any production. I paired my rebel pieces with two of my favorite thrifted items (black oversized culottes and stretchy pencil skirt), my two most comfortable white pair of shoes and harness from @nolstnme.tm

If you are going to rebel, do it with a purpose.
