The sixth episode of Polimoda Duets, conducted by Teen Vogue Culture and Entertainment Director Danielle Kwateng-Clark, features an authentic interview with GQ and GQ Style Fashion Director Mobolaji Dawodu.

Dawodu grew up between Nigeria’s warmth and the American dream. Before taking on his current position at GQ, Dawodu worked as FADER’s Editor-at-large for 12 years, visiting over 30 countries and directing shoots in dreamy places such as Trinidad, Senegal, India and Russia. Mobolaji has styled some of the world’s most notable figures, including Brad Pitt, Pharrell Williams, Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Jennifer Lopez, Robert Downey Jr., Jared Leto, Michael B. Jordan and many others.

“Life is like a race, I think work is like a race. I think you have to train yourself, and part of training yourself in the creative field is going out and seeing what you like. I think you have to explore the world,” explains Dawodu. #Polimoda #PolimodaDuets #MobolajiDawodu ========================= Credits: Idea: Danilo Venturi Interview: Danielle Kwateng-Clark Video & Music: Piero Fragola & Elephant Studio
