In one of her recent interview, she said: “I have a strong passion for everything Africa. Over the years, I have come across the most intelligent people making the most creative and ingenious fashion pieces; yet African fashion, does not yet have a significant footprint on the $3.3 Billion global fashion map. We need to grow the market and have the creativity and excellence of our designers and manufacturers account for a significant percentage of the global fashion industry market share.”
