TrendyB’s IGBOAMAKA COLLECTION Is a collection that tells the Story of The Designer Blessing Azolibe’s Culture and Heritage.
Greatly influenced by her Eastern Nigerian root . It has always been a dream of hers to bring to the world attention the vibrancy and uniqueness of her Igbo culture .
Born in Anambra state in Nigeria to Mr and Mrs Azolibe, TrendyB grew up surrounded by great and inspiring Igbo people who were resilient, culturally sound and ambitious , and they became an influential figure in her life.
