Exclusive Interview with Rita Jalloh

Rita Jalloh
Sierra Leonean fashion designer, Rita Jalloh has given us an exclusive interview on her  work, her experiences, and goals. Thanks to Rita Jalloh! 


 How did your career started and how have you grown over the years? 

My career started  as a girl who used to create outfits for herself, babies and dolls using pieces from old outfits or newspapers. I was very private with friends about my talent.   I have grown to be proud and comfortable with my work.  I'm not afraid to try new stuffs.  I'm not worried about criticism or even making mistakes. I'm in my own creative world if I should say. I see myself going a long way because my talent is unlimited and it speaks for itself and people love what I do because I'm different. It's a blessing to have support not only from family but also from people I don't know personally.


Why were you private with your work at first? 

Creating/designing means a lots to me. It is not just a hobby or business. Whenever I'm working on a project, I go into a different state of mind or place not everyone will understand. I go into a calm and peaceful place.    I was worried that if I didn't keep my work private, it would've ruin that moment and I wanted to take my time before going out, since I'm self thought.  



What are your plans for the future?
Currently, I have a clothing line called ThamaniAfrique.  I am debating the ideal of opening a store. 

Note: All the designs Rita is wearing in these photos were designed by her.
