Meet Selemon Susan Funke the founder of “Susan Rosemon” Fashion Brand. The fast rising fashion designer aged 23, hails from Nigeria and is a graduate of the University of Ibadan where she studied Educational management. My passion for fashion started since I was a lass.

I started learning how to sew at the early age of seven from my mother who also learnt from my grandmother. It’s a family heritage. From the early age of seven, I wanted to be more creative than my mum and she really encouraged me, supported my dream and kept pushing me hard to be a better me. She has always been my number one mentor and role model.

Today I can do so much with my hands thanks to my mum. Asides from designing and making dresses; I design and make costumes, bags, shoes, hats, accessories. I also do interior decoration and can work with materials of any kind, from fabrics, paper, plastic, glass, beads, and so on. The reason I know so much is because of the drive and passion within me. Learning and creating new designs each day keeps me going in this competitive industry.

One of my memorable fashion experiences is the Nigeria’s Next Top Designer 2016 competition in which I made top 7 from over 500 fashion designers shortlisted. My 2017 Newspaper Series Collection was inspired by God. The truth is, I wouldn’t even come this far without Gods divine guidance and direction. With all these gifts that I have, I hope to inspire the upcoming generation to seat tight and be productive.

My advice to upcoming entrepreneurs, is to find something you are passionate about, learn it so well and be your own boss. You don’t need to have the talent or skill, just be passionate and love what you do. Surely there will be a lot of challenges faced, but with hard work and prayer, you will break grounds.

on

Ghanaian Fashion entrepreneur Suleman Abdul Mumuni known as Onyansani is a student of Legon who, after a fourteen-year break, returns to pursue his educational dream and joggling both well as he outdoors his long-awaited piece – The Royal Collection.

The Royal collection, which forms part of the numerous collections by the designer, is no match to his previous works as the release marks his tenth year in the fashion space and inspired by his community – the Zongo.

In an interview, the Joyce Ababio College Of Creativity and Design (Vogue Style) and Kofi Ansah trained asserted, “My new collection is inspired by my environment, the people, the love and the culture. I grew up and still live in the Zongo, and I want my people to have and feel a sense of originality, belonging, and confidence when they are adorned in this design.”

“This is who we are. Our confidence is tired to self-believe, and wearing an outfit made by one of us is a way to communicate believe in our own, and by extension of ourselves. I pray everyone can come to terms with how I’m feeling now as a Zongo boy and a Muslim.” He ended.

The Royal collection, which comes in different colors, is a long outfit (jalbaab) mostly worn by Muslims but with a touch of authenticity in design. Touched by the master himself with the best finishing, it has luxurious embroidery designs and signs of African descent.

The Fabric doesn’t only look good on you but feels good on the body as there is a sense of freedom: It gently falls on your skin and makes room for easy movement and comfy.

The 33-year-old family man who branched into fashion after his fall off the educational ladder in 2006 when he was first admitted to the University Of Ghana is back at Legon after 14 years to pursue his tertiary education and concurrently running his fashion house with nine employees. Hence, a designer by day and a student by evening.

Revered fashion platforms and stages that have showcased his works span from the local to international scene; Mercedes Benz Africa Fashion Festival 2014, 2015, 2016,2017; Global Fashion Week 2019; African Fashion Week Dubai 2017; Rendezvous VIP Fashion Night 2016 Lome – Togo; Ecowas Fashion Week 2015 Cotonou – Benin; Fesma Fashion show 2015 Cotonou among others.
