About The Designer Obi Nwankwo
It's Knot what you think it is. It’s more than that. I grew up and I was Knot always the individual people imagined me to be. I was raised in a Nigerian household with a Single mom with 4 kids. My mom relocated to America from Nigeria to attend Harvard University and provide a better life for our family.
I was a 6’3” African American kid who played Football, Basketball, Baseball, and ran Track. People at the time had a bias towards me when I relocated from a diverse densely populated inner city areas of Boston to a suburban town. When I moved everyone thought I would be uneducated and just into sports but this was Knot true. I was in love with school amongst a lot of things that didn’t meet the eye. I loved fashion, the arts, cinematography, writing, acting, and modeling because they enhanced my creativity.
I was Knot always able to express that side along with my fashion side fully because of the East Coast environment I grew up in. The East Coast at the time did not accept creatives and was more corporate driven. When I moved to the West Coast I was really able to bring my creativity to life. KnotWtr was created because of the tying of the different elements of my life into one brand. Who I am is an element that’s Knot always what meets the eye when you see me at first. The different elements and interests that compose my character are a part of me. So join me and become a part of KnotWtr!
Who I Do it For:
Family is everything to me. On the inside of every pair of glasses has the date “7-7’1938” which is the day my Grandfather was born. He recently passed away late 2020, during the beginning stages of KnotWtr. He would have been so proud to see his grandson's creation. Volume 1 + Volume 2 are dedicated to him.
