As a youngster, she would wake up at night to find new ways of expressing herself and her emotions. Being a multi-talented artist, she was able to develop an independent view through night sketching, drawings and paintings. Having created personal storybooks and illustrated each page herself, it created the desire to find new ways of expression. As loving parent always do, Priscilla’s provided the support needed to nurture her creativity and talent.
In 2011, Priscilla developed an interest in the fashion industry, realising she had to learn how to sew on a sewing machine after mastering the art of sewing by hand. She enrolled into a fashion school in Nigeria where instead of being taught how to sew, she became an errand girl and not being happy with this situation she decided to quit. She then purchased her first sewing machine training herself for 3 years. As the passion for fashion multiplied she went on to study Fashion, Product and Promotion at the University of Sunderland where she became more exposed from the many researches and projects she worked on. Mixing English Elegance with African history and tradition, she created a project that compiled the age of tie and dye emerging from Nigeria through her prints mixing it with a rugged but regular shape of military and civilian wear to create a Collection of designs that ensured she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in July 2017.
Not wanting to rest on her laurels, she signed up for the Fashions Finest Africa in May 2018, creating the Collection she called “Motherland” derived from the understanding that Nigeria is her home. The all-female collection danced to the beats of culture adding a flair aspect both literarily and figuratively. Now, she looks to keep up with pace and release her second collection in a Year at The Fashions Finest UK with the drive to bring African Elegance back to the UK.
