We already know that Fashion is limitless and it’s diversity is equally enormous. So I decided to gain more knowledge in the field with the focus on Tie-dye, a.k.a. Adire.
To that effect, I brought a professional onboard as usual, to share with us her expertise, in order for us to broaden our knowledge on this thing called FASHION.
