“ My decision to start a couture line was to showcase the beauty of The African culture especially Nigerian fashion, we use locally sourced African fabrics/prints to make fashion accessories which transforms and enhance our everyday look. Our designs can compete with other international brands and designs available in the market. Our afro-centric fashion products serve for both everyday formal and informal purposes and our clientele base include- ladies, gentlemen, brides, fashion designers, shop/boutique owners, departmental stores, corporate organizations and generally people who love to have the unique experience of owning fabulous handmade items with African fabrics Our products are all handmade from good quality fabrics with neat finishes. To ensure good customer satisfaction, delivery is guaranteed after the set production date“.
