How has the year been for you so far?
So I’m finally bringing what I’ve been up to, to you guys as I’ve promised. The debut collection is finally hereeee! Whoot whoot!
Working on this collection taught me a few lessons about life.. haha. Cos I was never satisfied, and I kept on changing something and fixing something, but then I realized that life isn’t going to wait for me to be perfect for it to move on, so I decided to do it regardless. If not, I’ll probably still be on “fixing” it.
I’ve learnt that growth is important and to me, that means that, you can keep striving to perfection WHILE you move. Although, I’m afraid it’s not as perfect, I’m doing it.
Here’s to doing it afraid but still learning and growing.
The collection is really dear to me cos it’s a juxtaposition of traditional tie dye (adire) techniques and contemporary fabrics and that is something I’m excited about.
Creating a fun and trendy way to wear Yoruba culture and heritage while encouraging ethical fashion as it was made in Nigeria by Nigerians from the hand dyeing of fabrics to the sewing by local artisans, hereby creating opportunities.
Check it out below guys:
