Yvonne, started learning fashion design after finishing her Bachelor in Information Technology and Computer Science in 2013.
A passion for fashion designing has always been her lifetime dream and upon graduating, she entered the fashion business under the brand "Yhitetee". She started learning slowly, teaching herself with the help of Youtube videos and moving on to our local tailors and then VETA, later opening up her own store in Mwenge, Dar es Salaam by the year 2015.
Throughout this whole time, a lack of competent staff and her own professional production skills made her realize that she needed further studies in this area.
Currently she is enrolled at the International Fashion Academy (IFA) in Paris, France, where she has learnt a lot not only about the design process but also about production and she is able to share this with others.
Yvonne has participated in Swahili Fashion Week (as an Emerging Designer) and Lady in Red Fashion Show in Dar es Salaam.
