Rendez-Vous with Mobolaji Dawodu

Punch-drunk authenticity

On Monday, February 24th, GQ fashion director Mobolaji Dawodu will sit down for a Q&A with Teen Vogue culture and entertainment director Dani Kwateng-Clark to speak candidly about visual language, celebrity styling and purpose.

Mobolaji Dawodu's magnetic style is boy-next-door charming meets cosmopolitan living. Growing up between Nigeria's warmth and the American dream, the fashion director's work seamlessly blends tradition and innovation with punch-drunk authenticity.

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 far away places like 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.

Recently, he worked as a costume designer on Donald Glover’s Guava Island, starring Rihanna and filmed in Cuba. He has also worked on numerous feature films including the Sundance award-winning film Mother of George and Disney's Queen of Katwe starring Lupita Nyong'o.
