Yvonne Nwosu is a dexterous fashion designer and the creative director behind the popular Vonne Couture . Before I had the pleasure of speaking with her; I had eyed a couple of her beautiful pieces on celebrities and socialites. I was glad she accepted my invitation to share a little about skincare, fashion and the importance of loving oneself. Thank you Yvonne Nwosu for such a fun chat. 

Why fashion?

Fashion has always been part of my life. I think I started by making clothes for my dolls when I was a little girl, and as I grew older I would always remake my clothes; adding my own personal touch. My mother is very fashionable, so I picked up a thing or two from her as well.
