The creative designer – Abiye was born in Nigeria, but moved to UK in 2003 to pursue her studies. She is a 24 year old PhD student studying Cancer Immunology at Nottingham Trent University. Abiye has always had a burning desire for fashion and design. In order to exhibit her love for fashion and contribute to the fashion scene, she started to make customized jewellery (earrings, bangles, necklaces) and accessories (such as handbags, shoes, bow ties, brooches).

In 2012, she turned her dreams into reality by making accessories for herself, friends and family after realizing that lot of people required matching accessories to their Ankara outfits. Because of her African heritage, she mixes vibrant color and patterns of the African print fabric “Ankara” to her collections.

All accessories are currently handmade in the UK and the brand’s uniqueness extends to custom orders- all items are fully customized.
