In this fashionable interview with Topflyers Magazine team, she talks about her love for fashion.


 How is your business fairing considering where you started and your aspiration for good designs?

 I unveiled my fashion brand on the 15th of October, 2015. I love fashion and always have passion for it. Fashion to me is life. Making my customers happy with typical creative art is what makes it more interesting to me. It was not easy when I started because I was young and ready to face the market system despite the inflation and deflation in the prices of goods and services. Notwithstanding, like I said, fashion to me is life. The glamour it depicts alone is breath-taking.

 How long have you been into the fashion industry?

 I have been into the fashion industry for over four years.

 What are the challenges regarding your business?

 We all have challenges but how we handle these challenges is what defines us as entrepreneurs. My major challenge is inflation of goods. Most times, it makes production of clothing difficult for a target market.

 Where do you hope to be in the next 5 years?

 I hope to be where God wants me to be. I want to be seen as a global brand where Africa is just a stepping stone.

 What is unique about your brand?

 Our uniqueness is making you feel confident in what you wear. We tell a story about you through your fashion lifestyle. That is what makes our brand unique always to our esteemed Lovers of Weckx Design Intl

 How can people reach out to you for patronage?

 You can call or whatsapp us via 07033336116 or check out WECKX design Intl on Instagram and Facebook.    

 What message do you have for your customers?

 The message I have for my customers is that they should expect magic from us... It is a new decade and era and my agenda is to transform fashion into a story line where what you wear defines your confidence and tells who you are on the inside.

 How do you relax?

 I relax by swimming.

 What is your favorite meal and colour(s)?

 My favourite colour is black and my favourite meal is spaghetti and chicken sauce.

 What is the one thing you cannot do without to survive this life?

 Love! Love for my family and loved ones.  I cannot do without that. Fortunately, my Love for fashion has won me over 69 awards.

 What can you say about the Corona Virus ravaging the whole world and how has it affected your business?

 We thank God for life first. COVID-19 has done terrible harm but we still keep on going strong.   Businesses have been affected alot because everyone is just trying to survive.

 How do you feel being the Topflyers Magazine International’s Entrepreneur of the Month of September, 2020?
