A young Gambian who travelled to England to better his chances in life has launched a new street fashion brand inspired by his 2-year-old son.
Lamin Gibba lives in Newcastle after meeting his British wife, Danielle in London. Their son, Jackson inspired him to develop his own fashion brand.
According to www.bqlive.co.uk, Lamin’s brightly coloured “Jerry J” t-shirts and hoodies are aimed at modern men and women who like to dress in style.
The news website further disclosed that the new designer streetwear gets its name from Lamin’s street name of Jerry and the first initial of Jackson’s name.
The young Gambian told the news website: “Our brand has a complete range of high-quality designer streetwear items including baseball caps, hoodies and tracksuits. I’ve brought a lot of cultural influences from my experiences in Africa. For example, in our tribal t-shirt range, the logo of a man climbing a palm tree is symbolic of my home tribe and represents the way many of them make a living by producing palm wine.”
In an interview with What’s On-Gambia, Lamin revealed he arrived in the UK six years ago. He said: “I am from Serre Kunda, near the primary school.”
