1. Why did you decide to become a fashion designer?
I decided to be a fashion designer because growing up as a plus size girl I could hardly find trendy clothes that were flattering.
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.
I enjoy bringing my designs and ideas to life. I enjoy watching how I can transform a lady’s disposition through careful crafted pieces to enhance her curves, beauty and ultimately here confidence.
4.What is the most challenging part of fashion designer?
I think it’s mostly the same for most designers producing in Nigeria, finding and retaining quality machinists. That’s a primary issue.
5.Which fashion designer inspires you the most? Nigerian Designer is Lisa Folawiyo (Jewel by Lisa)
