I’m Diana Maina, Director and designer at Angiana wear. We focus on dressing people according to their different personalities and letting embrace their own style

When did you first realize you wanted to pursue a career as a designer?

Angiana wear : It was in 2012,most of the people I would meet up with would always ask who dressed me or compliment my outfits. Most of them it’s outfits I would buy and modify them to my liking. So 2014 I decided to try it out.

How is working in fashion different today than from when you started out?

Angiana wear : When I started off in 2014,most people had not yet embraced fashion as much as they have now. Even fashion events and awards have more attendance now than before.

What do you think is the most beautiful dress you’ve ever designed?

Angiana wear : A purple ball gown I designed for a friend for her birthday after she saw a red ball gown I had worn at Mtindo Africa event. It was gorgeous and breath taking.

Which supermodel do you have the closest relationship with, your favorite one?

Angiana wear : My favorite would be Maggie Muchemi former miss supernatural. Got to know her way back when I used to model. She has a kind heart and good at what she does.

Which competitor do you have the most respect for?

Angiana wear : That would be Akinyi Odongo. She is very creative and a go getter.

What role do you think social media plays in fashion today?

Angiana wear : It plays a big role in advertising and connecting you to the clientele you need. Also helps be cause those who don’t have knowledge of you get to see your work either from sponsored ads and etc. That way they get to contact you in future when they need your service or refer their friends to you.

What was your biggest fear when going out and starting your own line?

Angiana wear : First was because when I was starting this off I wasn’t physically around to supervise everything hence put trust in my family. Second was not sure if people were ready to embrace style instead of fashion.
