Hi, I'm Fisayo Quadri. I'm an artist and designer focused on creating in color and celebrating special moments. I have a background in fashion design (Pratt BFA Fashion '19) and textiles (Rhode Island School of Design MFA Textiles '22) and enjoy creating and collaborating with people who enjoy having fun.
As an artist, my work primarily focuses on mixed media abstraction and collage, highlighting the ways we use imagery to reimagine everyday life. Drawing on my experience as a first generation Nigerian-American and being immersed in art and culture here in the Washington DC Metropolitan area, I gravitate towards themes of celebration, identity, and autonomy. Some of my favorite artists are Mickalene Thomas, Lorna Simpson, Yvette Mayorga, and Bisa Butler.
In my design practice, I enjoy creating garments that elevate everyday and celebrate special moments. Ultimately, I want you to feel comfortable and confident in your skin. Often inspired by balloons, piñatas, candid moments and event planning, my goal is to create clothes and accessories that feel good and encourage you to live carefree.
LoveOhLou is home to everything inspired by joy and made with love based in the Washington DC Metropolitan area.
