What was the strongest inspiration for your collection ?
My strongest inspiration for the Vlisco show was honestly the fabric itself. I get inspired by fabrics, its
colours and textures. Ankara fabrics are all about print and what's important to me is that I create
garments that respect the fabrics design.
What kind of woman were you designing the clothes for?
know I have a lot more to learn about pleasing all types of woman. But for now I make pieces that I hope
make women feel unique and special.
What challenges did you have working with batik prints?
At first I thought it was going to be such a challenge, especially not being able to choose the fabrics. because I have instilled in me that what's most important is the fabric itself, it turned out to be a But
dream experimenting with them and figuring out what best suits the fabric.
What was it like showing in Nigeria for the first time?
Words will never be able to describe how it felt. I know I had dreamt about it for years. It was honestly
the best day of my life. But nothing will ever compare to the look on my mums face after the show.
