How did the idea for your business come about?
At first, I picked up interest during my youth service , after this, it was just to while away time , while I was looking for a 9-5 job and I was using my knowledge to create few designs , after a while I realised I started having passion for it (bag making) and I had to learn professionally . That how I found myself in the world of fashion , giving birth to my business .
