Question:OK. So l want to know how and when you started?
Answer:Actually I started at the age of 9,got inspiration from Western designs to transform them in to west Africans designs. I normally learnt after my school period when I just started my secondary school and during holidays.
Question:What financial backing did you get?because I know it takes some money to get started.
For the financial part of it all I got from my mum was just a machine cus many people never thought am going to take the training as a profession though I hard a dream to be an industry. While in my secondary school I did fashion and designing.
Question:What is your dream as a designer?
Answer: Concerning my dreams I just want to explore fashion in many domains be it Western and Africans wears. Subsequently by having a factory that will create employment and give opportunities and free training to the less privileged.
Question: I also want to know how you sell your designs and your advice to young and aspiring designers.
Answer: For now my aim is to ensure that I satisfied my clients with their demands because I already have them but am still building my brand so I need to look for consumers. As for my advice I will say if they choose to do fashion they must have passion for it because without the passion there will be no determination and no dreams in addition even if u learn from the best designer u will not keep the knowledge since your mind is stiff.
