Starting off modelling, interning for fashion brands, releasing collection lookbooks and debuting on the runway amongst other editorial features, Morafa played back how he used "to make clothes for my sister's dolls, their teddy bears sewing with needle and thread on all their dolls" when he was still a kid till now when he's living that dream.

"I used my mum's fabric to make clothes for myself and my folks, I knew I wanted to do fashion" Morafa quipped in the interview.

On any formal training prior to launching his own brand Morafa offered that he had a 6-month internship with Kinabuti two years ago when he won UNILAG's finest designer award. He spoke about his raved '25 Collection'  which he offered was created based on the youth age that is 25 and generally for the young at heart.
