My name is Adebowale Rebecca Temiloluwa. I am a professional fashion designer, and the CEO of Lich Couture. It all started, when I was very young. I always envisioned myself wearing beautiful and creative dresses created and styled by myself. I told my parents about wanting to learn fashion designing and they accepted. I learnt the basics of fashion designer when I was in secondary school, and went ahead to study industrial design in the university, where I got to learn more about designing. Lich Couture started officially as a brand on January 10, 2018.
The motivations behind Lich Couture are the young people I see making moves to become better persons, as well as people I see ahead of me getting better. This pushes me to become someone better and not to relent. I am motivated to pursue my dream with determination, which is the only way to achieve maximum success.
I encountered some challenges, when I first started. Basically, after seeing my creations, people usually admire and love them. But when they see me, and due to the age factor, they tend to lose a little confidence. Also, I faced the challenge of getting capital to execute more designs. This is a major challenge I actually faced.
I have a few role models like Tolubally and Tiannahplace Empire, CEO Lumine. They inspire me a lot with their difference and creativity. I learn a lot from them.
The problems Lich Couture is solving include the financial aspect of designing. We make nice, beautiful and creative wears at affordable prices. We also see a lot of people with the looks, some with the body and so much elegance in them, but they are unable to express it. We help our clients discover the unique elegance for each body type.
Our vision is to become a household fashion industry known and admired for its quality, uniqueness and royalty by 2024. We want to be a brand everyone wants to identify with.
My advice for people, especially youths out there is that they should follow their dreams. They should be steadfast and consistent in all they do. In addition they should never give up. We are on Instagram as Lich Couture and our Facebook page is Lich Couture.
