Next In Conversation…Fashion File with Northbound Radio
Last month it was Fashion-Enter CEO Jenny Holloway, this time it’s the turn of Maria Ikong Ehuy, a mumpreneur and resident of the Islington community. Maria started her fashion journey by enhancing her technical fashion skills with Fashion-Enter by designing bespoke handmade clothing for voluptuous women curating Hashtag Made IV Me.
By infusing her African and European cultures, Maria has developed unique and eclectic designs tailored to her muses to enhance and bring out their inner confidence.
