Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m as simple as one can define the word, complicated in-terms of choice of fashion, not an extrovert to the letter but a company you wouldn’t regret.

What motivated you to form Illuminating Ladies?

I was inspired to form illuminating ladies by my older sister. The idea of forming Illuminating ladies stemmed from her on-line magazine Illuminessence. Everything that Illuminessence showcases is what an illuminating lady embodies and my sister is an example of an illuminating lady.

How would you describe an illuminating lady?

Strong, forward-thinking, progressive, confident and spiritual.

How does Illuminessence inspire you?

Basically, in every way as woman. Illuminessence highlights the good sides of women that aren’t noticed by all. Reading the achievements of other women through hard work makes me more motivated in getting out there each day and making a difference.
