Every fashionista wants to have that African detailing in their everyday outfit.”

Q. When did you first start designing?

A. “I was 7 years old when I started cutting and hand sewing fabric, and I started designing at the age of 10.”

Q. What is the most important lesson you've learned since you've been designing clothes?

A. “There is only one thing in life, and that's the continual renewal of inspiration. That is one important lesson I've learned.”

Q. What what type of person would wear your designs?
