  • An Ode to Toni Jo;

    My  Hero

    My Strong Pillar

    My Un-failing support system

    Thank You for your strength

    Thank You for your weakness

    Thank You for  your tears,

    Thank You for your smiles.

    Thank you for who you are, for

    All you are has made me who I am.




    This collection is very dear to the designer’s heart as it is dedicated to her father, Tonipre Joseph Sambo. She used strictly dark colors like Maroon, Gray and Black to represent the emotions herself and her family has gone through in the past few months.

    To the designer, this collection is defined thus: ‘’True definition of strength is being strong even when everyone expects you to be weak. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall or how long it takes you to muster up strength or courage to get back up, all that matters is that you do and when you get back up, you stand tall, and you are ready to face the world.”

    The collection is a mix of silhouettes, which every woman would need in her wardrobe. The use of Cotton, Tulle and Lace emphasizes Strength to Frailty to mystery and finally, control of one’s self and existence after fully understanding that everything in life has to come together for one to survive, find a balance and find joy which is necessary for your sanity.
