Millicent Poku is the 27-year-old founder of Millybee Fashions.
She was inspired to design clothes by her need for individuality and as she says, ‘was captivated by the ability of a sewing needle to transform how I dress.’ Sewing clothes as a hobby then progressed to designing and creating for herself and others to starting her label about five years ago.
Millie is excited to be a part of Zimbabwe Fashion Showcase UK and sees this as part of her journey to fulfilling her ambition to take her passion for sewing and creating to another level. Her specialty is womenswear and her ambition is to focus on creating bridal attire collections. Though she focuses on the UK market, she is currently working on collaborations to establish her presence in South Africa, France, America and Ghana.
