According to the creative director of the brand ‘I look back to how it all started, the story of my mom a dressmaker and especially my late father, who was a photographer before he joined the Nigerian Police Force. My dad was a fashion enthusiast who loved to photograph me when I was young girl. ‘Knanfe’ the brand name is a fusion of my name and my dad’sand the raison d’être is a testament to living out my dream inspired by my parents, encouraging achieving fashionista to find beauty in limbo but to strive to achieve their heart-set aspirations.

With this lookbook, the brand explores the idea of the Knanfewoman;  a minimalistic fashion-forward goal setter who loves clean lines and subtle glam, with an overall sophistication that gives her the confidence to take on each day.
