THE 21ST CENTURY CEO: FASHION REDEFINED!

By turning her pain to gain, Miss kanoyinsola Olaide Aramide (KOA) founded her very own fashion line KOA Couture, she inspires other women to look beyond their present challenges and create a bright future for themselves.

DA: What inspired you to go into fashion?
KOA-COUTURE: Right from the start, I was always interested in combination of clothes and how best colours match. I wanted to make something and I wanted to make it big.

DA: At what point in your life did you decide to go into fashion?
KOA-COUTURE: Immediately after secondary school. I just wanted to design something, so I talked to my dad and he gave me a go ahead.

DA: How did you start?
KOA-COUTURE: After secondary school, I wasn’t offered admission for the first year so I had no other choice than to learn, rather than stay idle. Thank God I wasn’t offered the admission because right now, I have a big talent at hand and it’s working for me.

DA: What challenges did you face?
KOA-COUTURE: It wasn’t easy, no lies. I had people giving me clothes and paying very discouraging prices, I was young so they looked down on me at some point but then I picked myself up and now, the only challenge I face is when I fight with sleep at night.

DA: How did you overcome them?
KOA-COUTURE: I just told myself it’s not enough reason to cry and lose my sleep, since it’s what I wanted I just had to put myself together and I face my challenges.

 

DA: What is the first step youll advice someone going into fashion to take?
KOA-COUTURE: Know what you really want and learn with patience. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

DA: What is your greatest achievement so far?
KOA-COUTURE: A second sewing machine which I got when I was just 18.

DA: Who is your fashion muse?
KOA-COUTURE: Well, Myself. And of course I have customers always repping and friends that model for me.

DA: How can we reach you?
KOA-COUTURE: My business account on IG- @koa_couture
My personal account on IG- @nehmar_
Chat me up on IG for my phone number.

DA: Where do you see yourself in five years?
KOA-COUTURE: In a big building with awards hanged on the wall and apprentices so busy from time to time.
