We noticed that you love wearing white a lot these days, and you have remained very creative in the way you rock your white fabrics, we asked her. It makes you stand out. Do you have anyone who designs for you? How have you been creating your styles?
“I design my outfits by myself”, she promptly explains. “And I also have lots of stylish people around me that always appreciate what I wear and give me great ideas. They always want the best for me. It has not been easy wearing white I must tell you. You have to keep coming up with designs that will make you stand out, which will make each outfit look different from the other one.
I also play with different kinds of white fabrics. But since the beginning of my life, I’ve always loved white. My name is Oluwatoyin. My mother told me not to wear any other colour apart from white since I was a little kid. I have been wearing white all my life. She said it specifically that I must not wear Red. Like I said, it’s not been easy wearing white. But I have become used to it”.
