                              from OSC College of Fashion emerged as the most creative designer of
                                                  the Fashion Week.

                                                          Can we meet you?
                         Vovwe: I am vovwe omoko. The creative director of ovemsfashion. A graduate
                                of fine and applied arts delta state university. I recently also
                                graduated from the Osc College of Fashion.

                                                       How old are you?
                                               Vovwe: I clocked 25 June 1st

                                                         Where are you from?
                      Vovwe: I am from otowodo in ughelli north local government area. Delta state.

                        At what stage would you say your interest in fashion began to manifest?
                          Vovwe: The truth is I have always been interested in fashion even as a
                         teenager. It only became more manifest or evident during my nysc.
                                 After which I quit my job as s radio presenter to pursue this dream

                                What informed your participation at the Winasbet NSFDW?
                          Vovwe: I got a mail, inviting me to participate at this year's edition
                                                  of Winasbet NSFDW. I
                      called my school principal Mrs sola babatunde. She advised me to run
                                                         with it. So I did.
                       What was going through your mind as you were making your collection?
                            Vovwe: Well I really just wanted to make clothes that ladies of all
                         social strata could wear and feel classy, special and excellent in. My
                     passion which is to bring class into street fashion as such replacing
                                           the usual trashy
                                                 looks inspired the collection .

                            How has Winasbet NSFDW affected your career as a designer?
                 Vovwe: Honestly, Winasbet NSFDW has affected me positively, my confidence has
                         since been boosted, it has challenged me to be even more creative and
                      mature in my designs. The show also has increased the number of people
                                      who now know about ovemsfashion. Its been great.

                       Through the various stages of the show, did you ever think you were
                                      going to be the last designer standing ?
                        Vovwe: Oh no! I never ever in my widest dreams thought it would be me. I
                                           was indeed favoured by God.

                                 How do you feel about going on to participate at the Africa
                               Fashion week Nigeria for free?
                      Vovwe: I am excited but saddled with thoughts of the responsibility and
                        high level of creativity that would come with it. Its a privilege I
                        want to use properly to make Mrs Ronke Ademiluyi proud.

                    The most important thing you learnt from your participation at the
                                           Winasbet NSFDW?
                 Vovwe: One word, uniqueness. In the fashion industry every designer must
                                  have something unique about his or her work.

                   What kind of clothes do you make and what demography do you think
                                      would especially favour them?
                                            Vovwe: My clothes range from causal, to coporate, street and high
                    fashion. Not only ready to wear but also bespoke ( special order
                       service). Ovemsfashion has been favoured in all demography. As long as we
                               have people who love to look classy.

                                       Advice to other upcoming Designers like you?
                Vovwe: They should never give up, they should keep pushing, be
                  hardworking and prayerful. They should also try to come on board next
                    year and register for Winasbet NSFDW as its now the biggest Fashion
                                 Week in Africa for emerging fashion designers.

                              Thank you so much for this opportunity. Am grateful to the organizers
                          of the Winasbet NSFDW and Mrs Ronke for the award. Also grateful to my friends
