What is it about Koshie O. that made you want to work with them?
I love how Koshio O has modern designs but still honors the African culture. I love African clothing. I love the fabrics, patterns and designs
What was your favorite part about designing your pieces in this collection?
I’m falling in love with every aspect. Getting the sketches, adding to it, taking away from. It’s a lot that goes into designing
As a designer what elements were important to have and maintain within your piece/pieces?
I wanted to make sure my pieces are something that a woman could wear everyday and she could dress it up for the evening.
After this collaboration do you see yourself pursing more ventures within the fashion industry?
I would love to pursue more ventures
As a singer you have traveled all over the world, how has that had an influence on your own personal style?
When you travel, you get to see other cultures and I’m blessed to be able to adopt some of those things in my personal style. I can’t WAIT to wear some of the Koshie O pieces. I got a shirt from Koshie O. I’m gonna wear it with some red skinny jeans!!! I’m gonna be cute [Laughs aloud]
What is a Michelle Williams staple?
My skinny jeans, probably a studded leather jacket and fabulous stilettos
What is an item that you feel every woman should have in her closet?
A woman should have a nicely tailored blazer to wear. I’m also a shoe queen so I’d say stock up on fabulous shoes. You don’t have to buy expensive ones either. There are some great inexpensive but great quality shoe lines like Jessica Simpson
Finally, what advice would you give other women when it comes to their own self image and finding their own style?
It’s YOUR style! Rock it and be fabulous. Maybe read a few magazine on how to pair and perfect a few pieces you may already have.
