Below Fashion designer Martha Jabo sums up what inspires her fashion!

I am a versatile Fashion Designer for the modern woman and man, who enjoy bold pieces that provide directional styling to their wardrobe. My label is the embodiment of several generations of style rolled into one, with a fusion of hippie sensibilities including modern prints, feminine silhouettes, and gorgeous embellishments. These are blended with tulle and ruffles in eclectic color palettes, with limitless inspiration drawn from music, theater, different world cultures and other vast subjects like Egyptian history, while staying consistent to my arty vision.

    hello miss Jabo, am so happy that one of my friends mentioned you in a conversatioin i was having with her, I have a dream to become a fashion artist and I have started some how but I don’t have the courage to put my self out there, I feel am not ready and my question is always how did you and other prominent designers put their names out to the public. I would like to attend one of your fashion shows and be advised . PEACE MIREMBE.
