a female of many talents













So tell me, what does fashion mean to you?

Fashion is Everything. I live, walk and breather fashion. Fashion adds color into our black and white lives.Without fashion I AM NOTHING !!!

How would you define your personal style?

My personal style is very Unique and has a lot of creativity. Its ROUGE :) My city's fashion is really Upbeat, especially for the woman. The style for the 'working lady' defines the elegant and chic personality of the individual which makes the mature lady inspirational to other women

How would you define your city's fashion?

My city's fashion is really Upbeat, especially for the woman. The style for the 'working lady' defines the elegant and chic personality of the individual which makes the mature lady inspirational to other women


When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer?


At the age 12. I was also into hair and make-up but eventually i knew that my career life had to involve  Something thank would either link to fashion or IS fashion.

 Where do you get your inspiration?

Hau-Wang , modelling
in the Black to Blank


Culture had inspired the majority of my work (modern Africa). I like that fact that I can link African material with contemporary styles which caters for every woman no matter their skin colour. I have used Congolese and Scottish prints in my designs.  Also, fashion around London had inspired me to create a collection for the 'city girl' (Black in Blank). But i mostly get my inspiration from anywhere, it could be from a trip that i go on to a simple pattern which eventually turns into a collection :)

What do you believe makes a quality article of clothing?

I believe that it all depends on the type of detail and effort that is put into the piece of work along with the cut and the person itself. If there is a lot of detail and hard work put in a a sketch to show off a person's style, then the hard work and effort is shown when the sketch comes to life.



From this, guys you know Rouge by Rachelle is really the 'ish right now !!! Everything she believes is PUT into her work, and look at the fabulous results !!!!
