MY FASHION PORTFOLIO

Five years ago, I moved to New York from Ghana, West Africa, with hopes of learning more about fashion and people. Growing up, we moved often, and it was during our stay in Malawi that truly birthed my interest in fashion.  Back home, creative fields were not deemed respectable and I was always told to focus on getting straight A’s. In Malawi, extra-curricular activities were highly encouraged, and clubs like art, drama, and calligraphy were available to me. I learned to focus on my strengths, and designing was my strength. Fashion allows me to express myself freely through sketches and garments. It has given me a sense of sureness and I’ve grown bolder through it. Sportswear touches everything and gives me that freedom to master the basics and strongly move in every direction, which makes it easier for me to truly express myself in every way.
