Footwear designer Shola Yusuf of Shola Designs will be making a personal appearance at a trunk show in Tampa, Florida. Shola will be showing her new Spring/Summer Collection.
Shola’s shoes are modern, classic with West African influences. Her motto is “Fashion is an Art”.
A native of Nigeria, Shola has a great story. She moved to New York City from Nigeria in 1989 with less than $100 in her pocket. She worked as a security guard and put herself through the College of Pharmacy at LIU, graduating in 1995. Next, she moved to Tampa, Florida and worked as a retail pharmacist for 8 years. In 2003, she opened her own pharmacy and now owns four in the Tampa Bay area.
She has always had a passion for fashion and shoes. After a near fatal car accident in NYC where she thought she would never walk again, she decided to pursue her dream of designing shoes. An avid traveler she has travelled extensively looking for inspiration and to shop for fabrics and materials for her collection.
The event will be hosted by Fashion Blogger Farrah Estrella of The Estrella Fashion Report.
