Who else loves Ankara prints??? Let’s not all answer at once…lol. I have been holding on to a few pieces of Ankara fabric for a few years now and only used them as head wraps but recently I decided to change that. Your girl has been sitting on her talent for way too long. You see, I studied fashion while living in Barbados. I also grew up in a household where everyone created designs for themselves as well as others so becoming a designer was only natural for me. For a few years prior to moving to the U.S., I was a fashion designer and had tons of clients who hated seeing me leave for the U.S. This was one of the most fulfilling times in my life. As life has it, starting over and building a new clientele here seemed a bit daunting so I opted to work for others and soon became a paralegal (I know this is the polar opposite from where I came from). However, lately I have been feeling the urge to get this going again so despite my busy schedule, I will be setting aside some time to focus on my passion. Hopefully, I can eventually take my dream and creativity to the next level.
