Asiyami Wekulom is a twenty year old up-and-coming designer whose smile and laughter can be spotted from a mile away. After spending her early years in Nigeria, she re-located to the United States with her family where she matured and reinforced her vivacious nature. Despite being a dedicated college student, she still finds time to work on her passion in clothes.

Here's what she had to say about her line:

“My culture and upbringing have the biggest impact on the birth of the collection . The concept behind the line is my juxtaposed sense of style that has evolved as a child growing up in Nigeria and living in the United States. With Asiyami Gold I wish to offer a unique take on the mix of both cultures with modern feminine designs that flatter the female form with touches of masculinity. Asiyami Gold is for women who celebrate their nurtured sense of style.”

        She is currently working on setting up her website for her designs, but until then she has set up a blog- http://asiyamigold.tumblr.com/-where her work can be seen. Asiyami is one to keep an eye out for and without a doubt, a gem that is just beginning to shine. Have a look at some of her work and tell us what you think!
