Meet the founder

What's good, my names Tayo. Born in the 90's and raised in South London, I’ve seen my fair share of struggle as a child of first generation migrants from Nigeria. I moved to Kent as I was approaching secondary school, and was blessed with meeting my best friend Dave. We went on to have over a decade of brotherhood before he sadly took his own life. I learnt very quickly in a pivotal moment of my life, the impact social isolation has on our generation. This isn’t a pity story, but more of a shout of empowerment, that from the struggles, beautiful things can really be born. Experiencing the immense loss of losing my best friend is why Trash Gxng exists today. We exist to break social isolation barriers by being the safe space and creative outlet for young adults to express themselves, gain new skills and craft their own meaningful future.

To be the creative outlet for our generation to be real and authentic about the challenges of life - leading to informed decision making.

"Every generation after you is the FUTURE. If you aren’t investing in them, what value are you adding to mankind?


We facilitate the conversations that lead our young people expressing what impact they want to have on the world. We then teach basic layering techniques to design a concept from scratch - we then work hard to bring their articulated story into a final design. The end masterpiece? On-trend streetwear designs co-created with every young person who collaborates with us.


There's a real lack and decline in community centres, creative hubs and safe places for our youth to be. We want to pioneer the way in creating what we call 'purpose-built retail stores'.

50% - streetwear designed by our youth


Our creative programmes exist to give young people a safe space where they can express their true, authentic selves, all while boosting their essential skills and designing some dope-ass clothing to boost their employability skills. Explore our programmes, or sign up today!


Through our creative workshops, young people can co-create an item of streetwear clothing that embodies a social message important to them. We then bring their hard work to life and create the product that they get to own. So every purchase supports a young person's employability. So what are you waiting for? Start shopping!


Through our creative programmes, we are striving to change young people's lives for the better. Read all about the good we're doing together.


Truly refreshing...authentic and creative...A truly revolutionary programme which I would recommend to any school that believes in educating and empowering young people.
