Anifa introduce yourself and tell us a bit about shophanifa.com and how did it come about?
I’m 21, born in kenya my family is originally from democratic republic of Congo. Ive grown up in Maryland, USA.

I’ve always had a love and passion for fashion for as long as I can remember. I’ve always wanted to design, but I was a bit scared of the competition. But on my 21st birthday I wore a dress that designed and made, and the feedback was so awesome it gave me the kick and push that I needed to really start designing and making things happen,  So my mom gave me the idea to start an online exclusive boutique that would carry my one of a kind pieces but in a very limited stock. 

What can we expect from your spring line?
You can definitely expect a lot of color from my spring line. And a variety if different styles. There’s fun, sexy, edu and conservative all in one place. Why go anywhere else.
