Inspiration

When I saw the fabric, I instantly had a connection with the leafy nature and pop of colour abstracted in this print. I was fascinated with how colour and marvel of nature are represented in such a unique and joyful way.  And I wanted to create an elegant and gracefully dress. A dress that would allow every woman to dreamily embrace her femininity, feel beautiful and comfortable with a sense of glamour. One thing I love about this African  print dress is it’s versatile nature. You can wear this African print dress to the office, a wedding but maybe it’s more perfectly suited for that fancy dinner or that red carpet moment.

what I need is a dress that would let me be myself and make me feel beautiful, good and strong

Resilience

I’m excited about this piece because at the time of making the dress I needed a reminder of resilience. As woman learning to understand my body, to nature and embrace every flaw, what I need is a dress that would let me be myself and make me feel beautiful, good and strong  amidst the unexpected experience I that we sometimes face, with a sense of ease. The planning, construction and sewing of this dress was as an act of creative respite. I’m also excited about the because the creative process reminded me of the need to celebrate every bit of my body. This dress will allow you to take advantage of those surprisingly cold and warm wintery days.

Growth

I’m also excited about this piece because I can see the sense of growth in my work and how I do things. I’m always looking for ways to make things better. Learning that faster doesn’t necessarily mean quality. Even though I’m open to pushing boundaries my process has to accommodate the purpose of producing less but quality garments. I’m also learning the importance of comfort in what I make so I’m more thoughtful with what I make.
