Speaking with Tribune Online, Ogunrobi said, “Fashion means everything to me. It gives me so much confidence, there is this confidence about a woman that dresses well. My mission and aim are to make every woman feel comfortable and confident in their body. Fashion is a reflection of who we are and what we believe. The fashion industry contributes to society by allowing us to express ourselves, our creativity and our beliefs to the world. And in my own little way, I want to make women express their inner selves through fashion because when you are fashionable you are emboldened and rearing to take on the world.”

But now I can say it’s tough, trying to satisfy all customers, updating new pictures, the more your business expands, the more challenges you face, just be positive. I will just advise women out there to pursue their dreams and do what they love,’ she said.
