I was about to wind down for the night when I received a link in a broadcast from one of my ex-Level 1a students, Priscilla, who is currently serving in Anambra. She registered for the Foundation Course just before she left for service.
To be honest, I had actually forgotten she was serving when I called her my “runaway student”. I asked her what she had been up to since she absconded from the Course and she goes “Please see what I’ve been up to and share your views“. So I went to my system, opened the link and my jaw hit the ground at what I saw…
The chic had been busy working on her collection!
I did recall her on her last day furiously churning away at the machine on some ankara peplum belt as she called it but I just assumed she was wearing it to a party. Little did I know…
Just check out some of her ankara garments and accessories from her debut collection titled “My Generation, Beauty in Diversity”.
Stunning peplum belts…
She has more stuff on her site so you can view them by clicking on the link:
Now Priscilla claims she could not sew before she joined the Course. I am not too sure I can remember actually since these designs are clouding my judgement but I will reconfirm this from my assistant. But I know she only completed Level 1a. She did, however, confirm that she did a lot of research on her own and continued practising what she had learnt when she left for service.
I have told her she should drop a comment in the relevant section, repeating all she said to me via Blackberry. Hopefully she will not abscond.
Now this is someone to watch out for. She had a goal and she went all out to achieve it, regardless of location or her skill. She continued to improve on what she had learnt and churned out her pieces and accessories all by herself! I am too impressed.
People if you like her work, which I am sure you will do, please contact her to place an order. According to her, the pieces are between N3,500 and N5,000. I’m not too sure which of these garments are hers but I suspect all the ankara work. Furthermore, her pictures clearly show you how you can combine her pieces with regular garments for that chic look.
Wow! Garments! Photoshoot! Website! Like uber-wow! This girl is on a roll! I am so inspired now! And I hope you are as well! Now none of us has an excuse anymore! No not 1. If she can do it, so can we!
