Lessons in Fashion Entrepreneurship #66 - Back To My Roots

When I was growing up as a young girl in Nigeria, every December my family would travel to my home town in Southern Kaduna State to spend time with my grandparents in the village. On many beautiful days, beautiful Fulani women (a nomadic ethnic group) would come into the village with fresh cow milk (nono) to sell. While I enjoyed the cow milk, I had a particular admiration for the Fulani women's beautiful clothing and the ease with which they wore it. As soon I started designing clothes, I knew I had to design something as tribute to the Fulani culture which greatly inspired me as a child. The Savannah blouse is this tribute and it feels great to be able to wear this top in my homeland.
