 After transitioning from the world of architecture to fashion design, Sheaffa Delince infused a refreshing, creative genius with garments that are gracefully refined. “Architecture is the art of living, clothing helps fashion who you are”; is her invigorative perspective that shapes her creativity and unique sense of style. Sheaffa is not one to be encapsulated in a fashion trend or her work to be marketed to a particular genre. Her free spiritedness is governed by her mood and inspiration, which allows her to explore design in “anything and everything.”

Her greatest form of flattery is to body sculpt her designs across all genres and let the clothes do the talking. This experience of custom design has enveloped and shaped her sense of creativity and uniqueness; so much so that when her ‘fashion moment’ comes along, clients with unblinking dedication to desire something of their own choosing, will have access to a designer who can shift gears at the ripe moment and procure a creation they can positively covet. Everyone should feel comfortable and confident about his or her personal sense of style; it will be the evolution in her signature, as she demands diversity from her collection.

 AFWNY includes runway shows hosting 21+ designers from various countries in Africa and those of the African Diaspora, exhibitions, and industry networking events. Opening designers Francis Hendy, Korto Momolu, and designers like Mafi, Attolle Collection, Geraldo Fashions and others will showcase.
