About the brand 4th Culture Ltd

The clothing brand capitalises on the creativity of two beautiful ladies: Funke Alabi and Deyon King, who are on a mission to revamp the concept of luxurywear. Both stylists, tailors and designers,  they are determined to build a business  relying on a model which is not based on the pursuit of profit at all cost. Using textile of prime quality, paying an honest wage to those woking for them, training, raising and recruiting  grassroot people to broaden their expertise and develop the brand are all key elements of their business concept. They have therefore opted out of mass producing to ensure the highest quality and finish.

Their passion is to respect and bring out the individuality of the wearer: their culture, their heritage and their style without her being objectified.  In essence, 4th Culture Ltd is a counter-culture to High Street Fashion retail, objectifying women with offering less and less to wear.

Here is what the founders had to say:  "We wanted clothes to relax in and feel original and sophisticated. We also felt that every culture has got something to say about society that is worth listening to. We looked at the heritage we wanted to draw upon: African, Asian, Arab and restyled the garments. Through a conversation with another woman, we also came to realise that these heritages also represent the majority of the people on planet Earth, hence our slogan "we are the ethnic majority".
