When did you know you wanted to become a fashion designer and how did you make this dream a reality?
I’ve always known that I wanted to be a fashion designer. However, life worked out differently. I went off to varsity and studied a BCom Accounting. It was only when I was in my final year that I decided to take a gap year to explore fashion. I began by playing around with my mom’s old sewing machine. And just like that my dream of becoming a fashion designer came to life.
Any advice for aspiring African designers?
Stay true to who you are. Most importantly, find out who you are and what statement you want to make with your clothes. Tom Ford says you have to define yourself, and in so doing, ask yourself why would anyone need what you are creating. There is already so much out there, so why would people want to buy your creations.
