2. How did you start fashion designing?
I have been designing from a young age. When I was a child I remembered watching the news with mother and she would ask me to draw design on the news reporters. Over the years I would just draw designs in when ever I felt like it. Then in the year 2008 I decided to enroll‎ fashion school in Birmingham. And when I moved back to London I attended London college of fashion in 2009. That’s how I started.
