When it comes to sneakers designing, the stories and memories I have are what keeps me going and aspiring to be a footwear designer. It started since my final year in secondary school and I have memories of ideas been rejected, scholarships won but which I couldn't participate in, competitions lost and some other stories I might share later.
Late 2016 and earlier this year, I participated in two different pensole sneakers design competitions. I lost the first which was TV show and the other was a boot camp which I won. I was denied visa though to train as a footwear designer but the experience was an amazing one as I discovered how to render my designs using illustrations.
The brief was to design a footwear themed around a fashion designer from the 18th century and other inspirations from my environment.
