AADHE CLOTHINGView Collection
I noticed this lack of connection to sustainable streetwear and vibrant statement-making street style. There didn’t seem to be anyone else doing anything about it, so I made Aadhe, a sustainable streetwear fashion brand, with an inclusive and socially conscious mindset.

FieldTriip, created and designed by Caron Rondilla, is based on our mantra “Endless Exploration", in which we love to explore and are inspired by life. We hold dear those memories and through our creations, we immortalize those moments. "Tangible Memories" as what we like to call them, they are essentially souvenirs from our journey. We believe that inspiration is everywhere, you just have to look deep enough to find the beauty in it.
Our logo was made to be synonymous within fashion and recognizable in the little details of life. It was inspired by the saying “everything and everywhere”. Our logo is an oxymoron, its abstract yet structured. Its primarily letters in a scripted font, arranged within an inverted triangle shape, so if you look closely, the letters resemble “TRiiP”. This shape was inspired by many things we see in nature; water shimmering in sunrise/sunset. Cracks in rocks and mountains. Cloud formations. Journaling is a staple of our design process so we wanted our logo to also look like a hand written signature. Most of all, we wanted a logo that embodies our ethos right when you see it.

LUCIA KINGHORNView Collection
Way up high and way down low is where I find my inspiration. Maybe it was Bowie’s Starman, maybe it was the Apollo mission to the moon, but stars have been twinkling to me all my life. On the ground, the extraterrestrial beauty of mushrooms beckons me. Now, I can’t get enough of their diverse array of shapes and colours.
I’m Lucia. Born in Canada. Cosmos-inspired, locally grown. With thanks to Baudelaire, my design ethos embraces that “strangeness is a necessary ingredient in beauty”.

Dami Junaid is a Third Culture Kid (TCK) who was born in Nigeria but have also lived the majority of her formative years in Niger Republic, England, USA, and Canada.As a TCK, she experienced an identity crisis while navigating the idea of home, which feels like it’s both everywhere and nowhere. When she's in Nigeria, she's considered as not Nigerian enough, and when in the West, she's also not considered Western enough. As a result, she feels like she don’t truly belong anywhere. At the same time, there is an expectation of how she should show up in the world and be defined, which feels like she's being constantly placed in a box.On the other hand, Dami works a Business Analyst during the day and a Fashion entrepreneur during on her free time. Dami started modeling on and off when she was 16 and has participated in pageantry and several runway shows in Boston and New York. She is a self taught fashion designer but primarily manufactures her product in Nigeria as a way to empower the local and also be immersed in her culture.With a background across several industries (healthcare, tech, fashion & business), she enjoys exploring her interests and trying out new ventures. Taloje, which means "who are you" in Yoruba (Nigerian) was born out of a desire to break out of the boxes others try to place her in. She believes that her identity is constantly evolving and as a result embraces her journey wholeheartedly even if it means losing the approval of others. One of such decisions was choosing to go to Business school instead of Medical school, and thus curating a career (in healthcare & tech) that has enabled her to combine all her interests. Her goal with Taloje is to use fashion as a lens to express a full acceptance of herself even if it seems fragmented and not enough to the outside world. Similarly, when customers choose to confidently express themselves through a Talojẹ́ piece, it's their way of saying they are enough in who they are and becoming. Even if their change or swerve may scare others, it’s not about them. Instead, it's about a commitment to show up and allow the full expression of one's authentic self, even if it brings others discomfort.
