Born and raised in a Jamaican family in Tottenham, Yodea Marquel Williams’ work explores queer futures informed by their spirituality; open dialogue with their diasporic community and inherited histories.    

On a journey to connect to Black Indigenous ancestors YODEA unearths the migrations of these communities, kept hidden from us.   

70 years on from the arrival of the HMT Empire Windrush, see’s the birth of YODEA’S first handmade collection RUSH debuting at London Queer Fashion Show 2018.   

The self-taught designer translates Black Indigenous memory by stretching the ways we learn and share knowledge.

Hidden tales; woven into apparel. We have always been here.
