Naleli Diana Rugege is an established Fashion Designer who used to freelance for two years while learning and strengthening her own ties in the industry.
“I have a National Diploma in Fashion Design from the Durban University of Technology in South Africa. When I graduated in 2009, I came to Rwanda to explore fashion designs. It was a new environment since I had grown up in South Africa and fashion and design is in most cases inspired by interacting with new people,” Rugege narrated.
