One of my hobbies as a little girl was to make dresses for my dolls which my friends used to like. They would bring their materials for me to design and sew some dresses for their dolls as well.I used to look up to fashion icons like Anna Wintour and Giorgio Armani. These two fashion icons are my favourite designers in the fashion industry. They are able to come up with trending and bespoke collections.
My aspirations in life have been influenced by Anna Wintour and Giorgio Armani. They are my major influential people in the fashion industry. I admire and adore their work a lot. They have been able to brand themselves and their work in a good way such that they became noticeable for it. Giorgio Armani has been able to built his brands past fashion and come up with anextension of beauty products.I am allured to become greater than their work and what they have built.
My mother has been an influential person in my desire for fashion. Apart from her daily work, she was very good at design, sewing and knitting.

She was able to teach mehow to sew and knit at a very young age. I have since been able to use my knitting skills to use by merchandising my creativity. I usually knit scarves, sweaters, leggings or socks and sell online or to my friends. It has been a successful hobby because I get paid doing what I love.
