This is your first time par­tic­i­pat­ing in AFW, what do you think of the plat­form and what has been your ex­pe­ri­ence?

Amaz­ing! It’s global recog­ni­tion. I have had the op­por­tu­nity to meet and know so many peo­ple in one place, in La­gos, in Africa, ex­hibit­ing their tal­ents. The at­mos­phere is great, the de­signs are beau­ti­ful and I think most of all, just the fact that your brand is pro­moted on a global plat­form from La­gos to the world is amaz­ing. What are you ex­pect­ing from par­tic­i­pat­ing in the show this year?

Firstly in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion. I’m ex­pect­ing sales be­cause I hear we have in­ter­na­tional buy­ers here; I re­ally push for that when it comes to my brand. I feel like fash­ion at the end of the day, no mat­ter how cre­ative you want to be, is still a busi­ness and you have to plough back and make money from it. Now that you have been a part of this AFW 2018, what will you like to see hap­pen in fu­ture shows?

I’d like to see more in­ter­na­tional mod­els take part. Our Nige­rian mod­els are great and I ap­plaud them for their work but I’d like them to bring more in­ter­na­tion­ally rec­og­nized mod­els and model scouts to also help scout out lo­cal mod­els over here.
