What in­spired your col­lec­tion?

Women in gen­eral and the strug­gles of women. The whole per­cep­tion of how mas­culin­ity is dom­i­nat­ing the so­ci­ety. That’s why it’s called ‘girl be­hind the mask’. A woman who does not un­der­stand her worth but at the end she’s a bird that can fly and do what ever. The mask never goes away be­cause the so­ci­ety stays, but she finds a way to con­trol it. What do you think was the high­light of AFW?

I think ev­ery­thing, the mod­els, the runway even though I wasn’t able to watch a lot of the shows be­cause I’ve been very busy. De­scribe the Arise Fash­ion Week in three words Amaz­ing, ex­cit­ing, fun! What are your ex­pec­ta­tions for fu­ture shows?

Ev­ery­thing is great. It’s a great plat­form for African de­sign­ers. It should keep push­ing us for­ward. More in­ter­na­tional cov­er­age and in­ter­na­tional mod­els.
