003 Wilson Oryema
Similar contraries between fashion and sustainability is what makes Oryema an inspiration to SÓUN. Essentially his activism through poetry is something that not only moves us but sends out a clear message to the world.
He represents the meeting point of two seemingly opposed worlds. A very successful fashion model but also a passionate ecological activist promoting environmental sustainability.
His work confronts consumerism and seizes sustainability as a topic for discussion. With his book of poetry Wait he questions the habitual cycles to which we've become accustom and ensnared.
"Wait, is there another way to do this?"
