“Having Ibrahim on board, who has been a member of the Off-White family for years styling our shows, to supervise the brand’s art and creative in this new stage is a wonderful pleasure.” We are excited to embark on the new chapter of Off-White with his skill and vision, always remembering the innovative innovation and principles that Virgil had at heart and that are at the heart of our brand.”

All about Ib Kamara, Off-Art White’s & Image Director.

In 1990, Ibrahim Kamara, sometimes known as Ib Kamara or I.B., was born in Sierra Leone. He spent three years focused on his studies to become a doctor in accordance with his parents’ wishes. But he quickly changed his mind and decided to pursue a career in fashion. As a result, at the age of 16, he moved to London. He majored in fashion communication at Central Saint Martins and art and design at Westminster Kingsway College. He also suffers dyslexia, which he discusses publicly in interviews.

Kamara’s fashion philosophy is founded on gender fluidity, identity, queerness, and exploration. He also expresses his Blackness and African identity via his beliefs. Kamara began his fashion career as an assistant stylist for Barry Kamen. The Sierra Leonean was initially noticed for his abilities in 2016, when he organized the exhibition 2026 in London, which concentrated on the concept of African manhood. He was subsequently introduced to Dazed’s Robbie Spencer, who gave Kamara his fashion feature in the magazine. He was a favorite of the late Virgil Abloh as a stylist and journalist. The latter saw a version of himself in Kamara and cited him as an example of how “diversity” can bring forth the best in the fashion business.
