Today in the Exquisitely African series, we focus on this beautiful young woman who's an extraordinary African entrepreneur. KrystalTalks couldn't pass up introducing her to the world as she is one being with many talents.

Say hello to Nwando a practicing pharmacist, who is a fashion designer and make up artist. Totally the whole package not so? She designs her outfits herself right in her bedroom. According to her, an idea or look just pops into her head and she begins sketching. She has a flare for the use of African materials as she's always been a proud Igbo lady and loves to honor her roots.

In today's edition, our attention was brought to the use and mash up of two different Ankara materials, both Da Viva . The combination of the primary colors suited her tone perfectly. When asked about the style for this outfit, Nwando said it's a mermaid inspired off shoulder gown. It's simple and yet elegant, so lovely that people have requested the same design. Asides designing the outfit, she supervised the sewing herself...she can't afford no mistakes ei? See more pictures after the cut.

She also used the same materials in designing a TM Lewin designer inspired shirt-dress with bishop sure are gonna love this one too.

True definition of an Exquisite African...Shine on dear, you sure are going places!!
