Q. The fashion industry is not as vibrant as before, what went wrong?

Almost every business has been affected by Covid.

Much as the consumer is cautious about their spending, creatives have also become cautious about how and what they create until such a time that we feel we can shift gear.

Q. What is the one thing Covid-19 has taught you?

To embrace all other aspects and platforms that exist within the fashion industry.

You can not place your eggs in one basket.

Diversification is key.
