MEET THE CELEBRANT

Many friends kept pressurizing her to get them some outfits she wears to a lot of events and since she has a strong passion for fashion, she decided to go into it fully and it has indeed paid off. Initially, she only concentrated on clients abroad but the demand kept increasing and that made her open a shop, so she can easily attend to clients abroad and Nigeria as well.
