The annual diaspora festival Homecoming is back for its third outing, billed as a cultural exchange event  – organised by Metallic Inc’s Grace Ladoja and Alex Sossah, but this time (taking COVID-19 limitations into account) the much loved festival spanning sport, fashion, music, art, and more went digital – in partnership with London based global retail hub– Browns


This year’s lineup of designers includes Clan, Orange Culture, Mowalola, Post-Imperial, Vivendii, Tokyo James and more, all featuring exclusive collections on the Browns’ website and in Browns East, the east London branch of the store. 


Also landing is a new zine, Ni Agbaye, which brings together creatives to discuss, dissect and celebrate the influence of African Culture on global pop culture as a whole. Check out  fashion and culture stories from the likes of Ruth Ossai and activist Ozzy Etomi. 

The event also features a series of talks and discussions with panels featuring speakers like Tremaine Emory of Denim Tears, Niyi Okuboyejo of Post-Imperial, and more.
