"Refugees United '', a collaboration between two brands led by Somali designers
Mohamed Hersi (Original Royal Refugee) and Mohamed Malim (Epimonia)
The two designers not only share the most common first name in the world; Mohamed, but also share much deeper similarities which is their backgrounds. Raised by immigrant parents that migrated to a different country after fleeing a war-torn Somalia during the civil war in 1990.
Original Royal Refugee, a high-end streetwear brand. His future goals coincide
with his past, to highlight the identity of the displaced refugees world-wide.
This collaboration is truly something special, two designers who at one point in their life had
their loved ones rejected and refused during times of true hardship, in life-or-death circumstances are today side by side for a special project. Tailored to perfection with concepts to hint at the possibilities and out-comes from a joint venture of individuals that were rejected for basic human rights at one point in their life. Take on a task to use their individual success for a powerful binding message to showcase the results of the once rejected Refugees.
