I’m not the average girl from your video and I ain’t built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally because I am a queen
Africa! I love my background. 95% of the time when asked, where are you from? Without a thought I immediately say “I’m Nigerian” even though I’ve spent almost half of my tiny years on earth in the western country. But to be logic, despite my passport reads the opposite, I’m of an African descent – Nigeria to be specific.
Growing up in Nigeria, I hated wearing Ankara (African material) made clothes. It’s not that I didn’t like them, but I just never appreciated the fact that my clothes were customized for me. Fast forward few years later in Canada; joining the blogging world, appreciating customized dresses made for celebrities during award ceremonies and trying to represent what I really am in the blogging sphere, I remembered the tons of customized dresses I left in Nigeria before moving and the inability to get the right person to do justice/slay my outfit here as it was done in Nigeria.
The fashion industry is changing and more than usual it is hard to stand apart from the crowd. We as individuals want to look unique and to not be compared to others.
Who looks good in that dress?
Oh, I saw another person wearing this outfit!
So, what better way than to go back to my roots, design it with the latest fashion styles and end it with a customized fitted touch.
No longer being a size 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or small, medium and large
But a size made to fit your taken measurement
