Being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) in her early twenties Kemi took some years to embrace her curves and redefine hey syndrome.

“My inspiration is life itself. I love to travel, new adventures, colour, comfort, love and draw my inspiration from memories i have created, my digital camera and notepad are with me all the time and I love to capture the memories of the moment. It is that captured memory that I have infused into my collection of designs, and why my ready to wear collection is limited edition, a unique dress for a unique woman.”
