I have been in lagos for like 3 going on 4 yrs, its like a slippery slope the more u try fighting it, the deeper u fall into it.. and the few times i want to scream and say whats wrong with you people.. i might end up being the crazy one..
anyway for the record. as cool as lagos is.. folks are losing their heads. too much fluff .. its like the blind leading the blind . i am sure it will eventually correct itself at least i hope but a part of me is thinking hmmm.. too much hype... and fake folks... its like nothing is really what it is.. and the worst part is they are believing their own BS...
hope i didnt say too much sha..obviously there are folks that really keep it real , i meet them daily at the store.. but we are a minority.
folks pls keep it real and noone cares about what u want to be.. we care about who u r now.

Zaina Riech is a 22 Ugandan talented fashion designer living in the U.k. I have always had passion 4 fashion since the age of 13, I was able to explore and develop these qualities further while designing for theatre plays and putting on shows with friends and family. I am currently studying a degree in printed textiles.
D-Zaina clothing has a lot of preparation to do in the coming years. Opening stores and showcasing on Africa fashion weeks we can only expect bigger and greater things to come
When I see an individual wearing my work and without a question asked, others are able to know that’s D-Zaina’s art. I love that.
A lesson learnt was that not everyone is a well wisher and not every customer is buying your product out of love. Others buy your product so they can criticize and but whatever the case there is always a uniqueness about each ones art that soon enough they will realize they can’t do what u do.
While I was younger I had a to choose between performing arts and fashion… but I made a greater designer than I ever could be a performer.
No I have a 10pm -4 am usually. (giggles...)
Yeah best boss lady around. (me)
I wish people knew that I'm a soft heart and not a cold blooded bitch that is expected of all designers to be :)
I'm going large. Lols size 12 #lets go
Slowly becoming a shoe addict.
Working in the print rooms
Reading my bible
Talking to my lovely aunt jane
Staring at the ceiling
My bed heater
It could sound unbelievable, but I always say thank God and good morning… (pray)
Good Friday is a meal out with friends or staying in with mum and my aunts…best women to have around.
Puff puff… they gave them out after church.
By changing me 1st .......... being an example is always a solution.
