#MondayMotivation: “It took me at least 3 collections to finally find the essence of Eki Orleans” – Hazel Aggrey-Orleans

It’s a brand new week and what better way to kick off the week than this wonderful reminder from Ladybrille designer Hazel Aggrey-Orleans of Eki Orleans. Hazel recently shared an inspiring message on her Instagram page, showing that nothing comes easy, you just have to believe, put in the work and never give up!

“My path was very rocky,” said the designer. “I made a lot of mistakes and it took me at least 3 collections to finally find the essence of Eki Orleans. I learned it was not just about creating beautiful pieces but instead conveying an artistic story to your audience.” ~Hazel Aggrey-Orleans
