About me

I have developed into a creative designer over these past 4 years at university. Finding my passion for digital design and fashion creation. I thrive working solo & collaboratively, sharing ideas and celebrating perspective. These past years have given me a lot of confidence in myself.

I find my voice shines brightest under new and challenging circumstances, adventure can inspire exponential growth and I welcome it!

For my final fashion collection, I celebrated my heritage as the story behind it helped me find my identity. I love building a strong narrative around what I design, it adds value to every piece and keeps it forever connected to me.

Having no experience, to begin with, and finishing up my educative journey with 1 year’s worth of industry experience and a graduate degree. I hope to collaborate with many fellow creatives as I work towards further cementing my voice in this industry.

A celebration of my heritage, I am a culmination of two. 4 generations born in Kenya, East Africa. Kenya my home and my Mughal and Rajput Royal Heritage build the rest of my story. Therefore naming this collection Majesty. Researching my royal lineage, my family and my birthplace. Both hail from rich soils filled with colour, culture and history.
We had African fabric brought over from Kenya and I sourced regal Indian fabric in the UK. Meshing these two cultures to celebrate all the aspects of me and my people.
