There are loads of talented people who are carving a niche in fashion. One of such people is popular rapper Sasha P who a few years ago launched her fashion label "Eclectic by Sasha" (EBS).
Sasha deserves a little more love as we think she is awesome in what she does- music and fashion designing.
Today, the first lady of Nigerian rap tells us a bit about her fashion choices.
We hope you love it!
OB: Most people perceive you to be fierce. Do you think it’s because of your style or as a result of your kind of music?
SP: I believe it was because of my initial style and also my performances on stage. When you really listen to my music, you’ll notice it’s not aggressive. It’s more motivational and empowering.
In the “First Lady”era of my career, I wore a lot of jackets and used a lot of imagery that was strong, military etc so that, I suppose, was what coined the reference!
OB: Now designing is a big part of you. Do you think it has changed your style?
SP: Initially it didn’t because I designed even before the music took off and so I wore my designs. However, when I got into retail proper, my approach to fashion changed. I have been greatly inspired by designers like Coco Chanel and now I’ve embraced the philosophy that “Less is really more”.
OB: What’s the most interesting thing about designing for people?
SP: The most interesting thing I’ve found is how getting a client's order right makes them feel. There is no amount that can replace the fulfilment it brings when someone walks away with their EBS bag in tow.
Also, it’s interesting to see when someone’s physical hang ups change when they try something you suggest or just something different from what they are used to. The right clothes can sometimes have a therapeutic effect!
OB: What fashion pieces do you favour?
SP: Shoes!!! But I’ve developed an appreciation for minimalist items.
OB: What is your short-term focus; fashion or music?
SP: Both! I refer to myself as a creative entrepreneur. Music and Fashion are my passions but exploring them has made me discover more things that I am excited to pursue.So who knows what I will add next? It’s a learning curve and I am happy with where they are both taking me.
