A Babatunde hat caught the eye of Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles while she was in Cape town, South Africa. It was her choice cap for the New York fashion week and she wore it with pride.
Gareth Cowden is the mind behind Babatunde Styles. He’s a forward thinking African that’s leveraging his fashion prowess and raising positivity in South Africa.
About the name of his designs, he says, “Babatunde is a Yoruba name. The direct translation in English means: ” The father comes back” or ” the father returns.” I loved the name and meaning as I feel that we need more fathers in Africa. Africa needs men to behave like men and take more responsibility for their families, Africa’s growth and also themselves.”
