Good morning This is Kemimobuse blog

January5ive :Good morning ma'am
KemiMobuse blog: Can we meet you?
January5ive: My name's Yusuph Folashade. You can call me Shade for short. I am a bespoke bag and purse maker. What this simply means is that I make purses and bags according to a customer’s taste or desire but this is not to say that I imitate designs.
I have my own custom designs that can be modified to suit a customer's taste.
So for instance, if you bring me a design made from perhaps another designer to copy and make for you, I won't.
KemiMobuse blog: What is the name of your business?
January5ive: January5ive Creations
KemiMobuse blog: And how did you start january5ive creations?
January5ive: We are solely into bags and purses for now but we would be expanding into other aspects of fashion by the end of the year.
Kemi Mobuse blog: Ok
Is this your first business? And what was the start up process like?
January5ive: Well, I've worked for other people. I've worked in real estate, the banking sector and E-commerce and when I garnered all the experience I wanted, I decided to start up my own business.
Besides, I have always been a creative person so even while working in these other sectors that part of me was restless.
Initially, I was doing it alongside my day job but it became increasingly hard to strike a balance.
Don't get me wrong, there are jobs that you can conveniently manage with your day job but i'm not sure Arts and Craft is one of it.
So after doing a little business research and consumer analysis, I knew it was time to start up my own business.
