Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself.

BLACK AND WHITE COLLECTION !!
My black and white collection 2019 was mad for diversity fashion week, inspired by the song of Lucke Duby - one people different color.
As we celebrate oneness and togetherness through fashion, I dedicated this collection to everyone who believes in this togetherness as skin do not define any human.
I used African print fabric both black and white to portray this message of one people but different colors. I also used models from different backgrounds and ethnic on my collection as inspired.
What is your brand / Company all about?
It’s about creating and designing for everyone. I make clothes for all body types from children to adults for women and men. My designs tell a lot about myself and who I am I am mainly inspired by everything that happens around me my great inspiration is my mother and that is also where I got alot of my inspiration from.
What defines you?
My unique creation and sense of styling. my creation goes deeper and is deeper than people think with my clothing line I tell a story every time with each new creation it is different and I don't just make 1 outfit I make a whole collection
Are there new things coming up so yes what ?
I am working on a lot of new designs for young and old, the intention was that I would participate in diversity fashion week last year but unfortunately due to the covid19 I could not be there on time but that gives me enough time to prepare the next edition. I will be first showcasing my new designs at diversity fashion week and then preparing for other shows.
