UNI ---------------- VERSEby Spencer Badu
"UNI - VERSE" !
Honestly, I've never really been a partier. From as long as I could remember I have always been a workaholic. getting lost in creating during the day only to be exhausted by the time the sun set .
when I moved back to Toronto after school I realized most of the networking and relationship building took place at night on dance floors , bar tops and random peoples living rooms at 4am ..... lol
at times I felt like I was alienating myself and if you didn't know any better you would think I was anti.
In the past couple years I started to see my clothes more often at night. This made me really think about the end consumer and what they need from their clothes. For the SPRING / SUMMER 2020 collection i went down a worm hole of research into nightlight with a main focus on the Detroit techno scene .
Here's a interview I did with i-D for more context : https://bit.ly/365i2Yj

back to the party !
we had our first party to end of last year. all my friends Dj'd as well as my brother Tony Goodguy from pairs.
fast forward to fashion week we had a party to celebrate the collection we had our first party in Paris. It was packed without a celebrity. It was beautiful.
this year on December 19th we will be celebrating the end of the year, we are celebrating family, we are celebrating life.
I wanted to continue to create a space that is radically inclusive and continues to encourage this rebellious attitude that informs so much of that it is we do on a daily basis
Location: Drake Underground
DJ Line up: ............ "Family"
