Mercy is a Nigerian born fashion designer who started sewing in 2006 as a sophomore at the University of Ibadan. She grew up getting her fashion inspiration from her mum, Ada.

As a widow with little income; Ada always found ways to mix and match beautiful items from thrift stores making them look priceless.

It was no surprise when Mercy started sewing clothes at 19years. Ada bought her first sewing machine and ensured she spent summer breaks at fashion schools.

Mercy is known for paying attention to detail, she loves using diverse range of fabrics to accentuate the female silhouette.
