The trio look stylish whilst portraying their own individual personalities clad in pieces from their respective brands, Iconic Invanity, DNA by Iconic Invanity and Neka Youth.
On building a fashion empire:
We all have different target audiences, but the message is the same. Our mission from the beginning was to create meaningful work which revolved around family values, our customers' needs and community empowerment.
In the next five to ten years we intend to become one of the most impactful fashion brands made in Africa by expanding our production and continually creating valuable products which impact lives. We aim to continue growing and evolving with our audiences and intend to continue creating work which inspires clients of all ages, race or religion. So, yes! We are building a fashion empire if we must say so.
Favourite part of being designers:
The best part of being designers is knowing that we are responsible for creating special moments in people's lives. Those moments stay with them forever and to us that is a huge responsibility, one which comes with knowledge, love and an understanding of people and what makes them tick.
