See our interview with the beautiful designer below:
Tell us your name and the name of your brand.
Blessing: My name is Blessing Idoko Omada aka Blessing Bosschick and my brand’s name is BeeBee Couture.
What is your background in fashion?
Blessing: I have always loved fashion right from when I was a kid and I dreamt of owning my own fashion Empire. I started learning how to sew from friends that could in school and then in 2018 I decided I was gonna go fully into the fashion biz. Trained for a short period early 2019 cos I couldn’t afford to pay for a long period though on the other hand I just wanted to know some basics because I decided I won’t be doing most of the sewing.
And here we are today.
Did you study fashion because it was something you have always wanted to do?
Blessing: Yes. Although like I said earlier it was only for a short period. I continued learning on my own via YouTube and other online classes (both free and paid classes)
