What started out as a simple conversation resulted in a photo shoot and collaboration between menswear label T.I Nathan and veteran actor and political figure, Richard Mofe Damijo.


Famed for his good looks, talent and panache, RMD who is married to Jumobi Adegbesan and has five beautiful children and a granddaughter is the sort of icon that any menswear designer would be ecstatic to have as their muse.

When Temitayo Ilesanmi Nathan tried his luck by sending his proposal to RMD on Instagram, he never imagined the film veteran would reply, let alone assent to it.

With an intent to tell a story that portrays the many sides of Mr Mofe-Damijo’s life and lifestyle, T.I Nathan and his team created a line of bespoke pieces specifically for this shoot, and here is the end result of their creative collaboration.
