In an era where collaboration, particularly in fashion, has become a must-do rather than a nice-to-have, Sam Lambert, who, alongside Shaka Maidoh, founded Art Comes First a decade ago seem to have found the right way to championing art. Sam Lambert was born in Angola and exceled at tailoring whilst working on Savile Row, first at Spencer Hart and then at Ozwald Boateng. It was here where he and London-born Maidoh initially met and worked together.
Shaka Maidoh is a British-born stylist, visual designer and Art Comes First co-founder. Inspired by the past, present and future and combining it with styles passed on by his forefather and his father, Maidoh is "married to the art of craft.”
