Imagine a lady in USA making close to $10,000000 ten million dollars just as a fashion blogger you would get to wonder then how much the actual fashion designers take home yearly. Well outside Nigeria fashion designers are a big deal and this days fashion designers are now widely recognized even in Africa and are getting global recognition.
The likes of Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors and Kenneth Cole etc are well known worldwide for their amazing and outstanding designs thank God Africans are not left behind and in our own capital city in Nigeria we have a young lady miss Ruth Ernest who's on the rise to greatness and we introduce you all to her on this segment.
Ruth Ernest actually started off being a very stylish lady always looking her best even at a young age of about 14 always picking the perfect dresses and matching outfits,moving from there she decided to create her own style, had everything all in her head she then decided to put them into drawings as she could visualise them in her head putting them on paper, from there everything shifted to a whole different level. From paper work to actually making the dresses in real life, which for her is gradually becoming a huge Success apart from the fact that she might be one of Africa's youngest designers.
Miss ruthee has being involued in most fashion events and shows where she showcases her designs to the world, Just so you know being a fashion designer is different from having a clothing line ..........you can own a Line that you don't design your stuff yourself and you can both be a designer and own your own line where u show your stuffs or different designs. Take for example Kanye west designs for Addidas but doesn't make him the owner of addias that's why designers and fashion designers are very much sought after and earn big.
Do not miss this years Miss Face of Abjrichteens 2015 where miss ruth earnest would be showing us some of her lovely collections, we would be excepting a line from her Soon as she is making plans for all that with a brand name she calls "IVY" but before then you all can hit her up to make you something good, already she has some drawing for new outfits that when she's done with them would blow your mind.
