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.
