[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We absolutely adore getting some quality get-to-know-you time with our fashion community, and when it’s emerging designers? Even better! This year we truly enjoyed getting to know some spectacular design talent. Not only did we learn what makes them tick, we also learned some key lessons from designers spanning the continent with different backgrounds and design disciplines. We absolutely cannot wait to see what 2019 has in store for us!

In the interim, scroll down to check out some of our very best original interviews this year that we reckon need another gander or three![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Read the Full Feature: Meet The Designer Behind The Chicest Millennial Brand – Motunrayo Agusto[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
