How did you start Afrik Couture and what has happened between then and now?

How did I start??”””well I was in an African organization in college.. We took part in dance competitions and fashionshows which gave me the opportunity to work with fabric.. At that time I was in the health field so I really didn’t focus on fashion.. During my third year in college I decided to give fashion a try.. I bought a sewing machine, watched a couple of YouTube videos , took my bed sheet and made my first dress.. I remember that like it was yesterday.. A red dress with no lining, zippers or hems.. So after I graduated I decided to go back to school for fashion design and all the pieces to my puzzle came together.. Since then I’ve made 2 collection which include wedding dresses .. Made bridesmaid dresses, reception dresses and many more..I really enjoy making clothes.. There’s been ups and downs but it only gets better with time

What inspired the Equinox Collection?

My previous collection was very daring .. I had pieces you probably wouldn’t wear to work.. So I decided to try something different..  Wearable pieces but also with an edge.. I wanted the pieces to speak.. I didn’t want to rely solely on the fabric.. So I stuck with black and white palette and worked on fabric manipulation..

What advice would you give to brides to be looking for wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses?
Take  your time searching for your dress.. Don’t let the wave of trends dictate your choices.. Find something that you are comfortable in and most especially something that you husband would gag over when he sees you walking down the isle… Something timesless,,
The bridesmaid should be comfortable … True beauty emanates when the person wearing the garment is comfortable and confident ..

What else do you enjoy doing?
While I’m not sewing or being creative I’m dancing. I teach dance in nigeria at a secondary school.. I have been dancing since I was in junior secondary one
