I of Africa’ is a web series working hard to curate our global African story. It was voted by CNN as top African web series.

Aina Fadina host of ‘I of Africa’ interviewed renowned Fashion Designer Deola Sagoe during her Spring/Summer 2015 presentation at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York.

According to Fadina, “being a fashion model for brands, such as Oscar De La Renta, Akris, Fendi, Wes Gordon, and Marchesa, I know what it takes from a creative and business perspective for a label to survive. Deola Sagoe’s vision is one I greatly admire, and I believe that message shows in this video. Two of my favorite quotes of her in the interview are, “Africa is where it’s happening now”, and “I want to be a local champion”.
