In Conversation | Natasha Diggs
We last saw Natasha Diggs at G360 Live in Jakarta in August 2018, but earlier in March, she visited the New Delhi to perform at HG Street, the country’s first ever premium street and sneaker culture festival. While she was there, she also had the chance to meet up with the city’s creative community such as the founders of fashion label NORBLACK NORWHITE as well as sit down for an interview with Globetrotter.     To Globetrotter, Natasha talks about the excitement of sharing the energy of “Mobile Mondays” and “Soul in the Horn” to the emerging street culture in India. “A lot of people came to me and [were, like,] ‘We don’t get what you do here that much. This is special for us,’” she says. Website: www.globetrottermag.com Instagram: www.instagram.com/globetrotterlab Facebook: www.facebook.com/globetrotterlab

Laduma Ngxokolo | MAXHOSA
Laduma Ngxokolo started Maxhosa in 2011. Six years later, with lines for men and women, his creations are stocked all over the world: Cape Town, Johannesburg, London, Tokyo, Amsterdam.  The inspiration for the brand came from Laduma’s own cultural tradition - from a desire to make high quality, beautiful knitwear for Xhosa initiates, who give away all their belongings before a coming of age initiation (between the ages of 18-25) that marks their transition from boyhood to manhood. Having been through the process himself, he's well-versed in the history and symbolism of the rituals.    Maxhosa is home grown. Laduma produces his knitwear entirely in South Africa, with raw material (mostly woolen mohair) from Port Elizabeth. “We have the biggest mohair industry in the world and the biggest wool industry in Africa,” he says. “So I take advantage of those resources to come up with products that are premium, produced locally and yet relevant to the local market and to the people who visit South Africa.” Website: https://www.globetrottermag.com Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/globetrotterlab Facebook: www.facebook.com/globetrotterlab

ON LOCATION | JI WON CHOI
It seems that fashion designer Ji Won Choi has been anywhere and everywhere. She was born in Seoul, raised in the midwest USA, and educated in New York City and Paris. In November 2018, she once again embarked on a journey, this time to Lagos, Nigeria, where she was scheduled to show her eponymous brand’s latest collection at this year’s GTB Fashion Weekend.   One of the winners at the Parsons x Kering Empowering Imagination competition in 2017, Choi is known for creating designs that celebrate human cultures and champion sustainability.   We met her backstage to talk about taking inspirations from her heritage, living as an immigrant, enjoying Lagos and more.

REWIND | BLITZ THE AMBASSADOR
Samuel Bazawule turned Blitz the Ambassador after he touched down on American shores after 18 years in Ghana. The mixing of cultural waters woke him up, and he now takes up all tools at his disposal. “We cannot underestimate any of the channels we have available to us,” he stresses, “We must fire on all cylinders.” Instead of allowing non-Africans to shape identity and understanding, he calls for “a new canon of African storytellers” engaging in “non-linear, complex” dialogue to reclaim and enrich African identities.  Website: https://www.globetrottermag.com Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/globetrotterlab
