1.Why did you decide to become a fashion designer?

2.How did you start fashion designing?
I started as a little girl who was obsessed with being different, I loved to dress up and didn’t have much so I re designed a lot of my clothes to create something new, it was fun, and I did that for anyone who wanted, as I grew older I learnt that I could do this for a living, so after college I went to fashion school to get professional, and right after I launched my brand.
