For Queen Ede, Art and Fashion Designing has always been a part of her life. While growing up, she watched her mother make beautiful fashion pieces for herself and her sisters. As an inquisitive child, she would ask questions about her choice of colors and designs, and was soon cutting thick paper and old wires to make shoes and other art crafts at the age of 9. Her grandmother also worked in a fashion house and would always bring pieces of fabrics for her, which she used to make clothes for her dolls and fancy little purses for herself and her friends.  

Queen Ede believes that Art is powerful because it is inspirational and relates to all areas of human existence. She loves to design everything from clothes, houses, music, food, to people. She loves fine things and beautiful prints and textures, and finds the transformation that her work brings on people to be truly priceless. In this way, Queen Ede creates opportunities for those with a passion for Fashion, Art and Entrepreneurship. Together with her team, she offers young people the platform to actualize their dreams. She is passionate about using her creativity and platform as an International Artist and mentor to positively impact nations and students.
