When it comes to reaching the things that we strive for, sometimes our rewards come in ways we don't expect. Sometimes we look at the process and the obstacles we face during the process and think that that's our biggest battle not realizing that it's just as hard, if not harder, to pick ourselves back up and keep going strong when we fall short of our hopes. Last night I was blessed with the opportunity to showcase at the African Fashion Week student designer competition, and though I didn't win I came out with a victory. I overcame a lot of fears, I wrestled endlessly with my doubts, lost lots of sleep and even found myself in the emergency room from a sewing injury, but with lots of prayer and God's direction I was covered. The things I learned throughout this experience are invaluable. The love and support that I've gotten these past few weeks for my work will not be taken for granted. For everyone who took the time to reach out to me, to phone, comment, message, invest prayers, time, energy and resources, I am truly grateful. You were all instrumental in keeping me motivated and inspired. I couldn't have done it without the support of my family, loved ones, and a community of people believing in me. The vision of my brand @MajesticWisdom is much greater than fashion and I hope that I can continue to share that.
I'd like to share my competition piece with everyone who wanted to be there but wasn't able to make it. Your presence was felt.
A HUGE s/o to all my models. You were all amazing! Congrats to the winners and each and every designer who was in the competition this year. It doesn't stop there! I'm excited to see where this journey leads us. Thank you @africanfashionweek for creating the platform for designers to unite and connect with a larger community, and represent and share in such a rich and intricate culture.
Much love and blessings ❤
