According to her, the exhibition is aimed at showcasing her fashion collections which took her about two years.

“This collection took about two years to build it up; the idea is to make this exhibition an annual event until I am well grounded. I want it to be an event that people look forward to experience,” she said.

“I am incredibly positive about the fashion show; I feel this could be an annual. I have no idea where this is going, but I believe I am moving in the right direction.”

On her philosophical mindset to designs, she said: “I like simple things that challenge your thought processes. I do not like things that are overly complicated.

“For the exhibition, I will have things for men like my Etubo native dress and Ankara trousers. I still do my bits and pieces outside designing.”
