“Why do you want to study fashion design, that’s like becoming a tailor.” I often hear this being said to me growing up in Zambia. However, I always knew fashion is more then just tailoring, but like any other art forms, it is a form of expression, a tool for creating a dialogue and conversation, as well as a medium of storytelling.

Taking inspirations from the rich histories, and playing with emotional and eccentric elements that evoke a sense of nostalgia or memory from my childhood in Zambia, and creating a gender neutral, size inclusive and adjustable garments that could suit an array of people.
