Deborah Uchechi Chibueze is an ambassador and a graduate of the 2016 Street Project Foundation Creative Youth Boot Camp. Prior to that time, she was into singing and fashion designing and after receiving the training, knowledge and entrepreneurial skills at the boot camp, Deborah got a clarity of what she would enjoy doing so she opted to go fully into Fashion designing.
After the boot camp, she interned with Mr Kunle Adewale, Street Project Art Instructor and Faculty member, after which she started her fashion label DEB AFRIQUE, a clothing company that deals in custom made (measure to fit) and ready to wear outfits. Deb Afrique was founded in 2016 as a measure to wear brand which transformed into a ready to wear brand in 2017 with two successful collections and more to come.
Deborah is very passionate about the fashion industry and seeks to impact lives with her skills. Fashion, according to her, starts with the mind. She quotes “My goal is to promote more style and personality awareness as well as re-enact life and deep appreciation for the African culture.”
She is currently a 200 level student of the National Open University pursuing a degree in Mass Communication. Her desire is to colour the world with the African touch and flaunt its beauty in her daily activities. She has a number of projects lined up for the year and you can follow her on social media, facebook and instagram @debafrique for more information.
