For his final collection Yaku Stapleton found inspiration in the Afrofuturism
movement as a vehicle to connect with his blackness and provide opportunities for
others to introspect their identity through his designs. His fascination lies in
combining these topics with character design, fantasy, and themes of online role-
playing games like RuneScape. His initial designs for this collection were based on
characters reflecting members of his family in a limitless world. Through garment and prosthetic design, he realized these in a 5-look pre-collection made entirely from upcycled materials.
