Wallace started by making use of loincloth wax, mixing it with chiffon, silk, rich Bazin, velvet, lace, sails and more. She now has a fashion studio in Africa designing effortless and wearable pieces inspired by shape, architecture, and color.
“I always look for beauty in all the outfits that I create and I always feel like an outfit can never be complete because there is always room for improvement. I draw a lot and I accompany my embroiderers and designers through the achievement to get the effect we want. Every piece has to be perfect and we, as a team, have to feel proud of our work first before we present it to the world. Perfection is at the core of our business and I am grateful for all the achievements, so far.”
