About the founder Etsegenet Dessalegn is a civil engineer and fashion designer who loves exploring the world, learning about different cultures, foods and heritages, and then mixing them with Ethiopian cultures to create her fashion creations. As a civil engineer, she worked in different construction companies in different positions for more than 10 years until she launched her own construction company in 2014. Her career as a fashion designer started after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012. After she completed her treatment, she said “life is too short not to start what you love to do” and started learning fashion design in 2014, as it was her favourite thing to do since childhood. Now she wants to spread positivity, love and hope through her products and wants her customers to feel great, inspired and confident.
