Egypt Ify Ufele; The Youngest designer to ever debut a collection at NYFW!

My name is Egypt Ify Ufele, a Nigerian, a designer, the founder of Chubii line; a fashion brand with an inspiration drawn from the negative effects of bullying and body shaming. I’m an International anti-bullying activist and UN Junior ambassador of Peace.

My brand makes clothing for people of all sizes and shapes using prints that pay homage to Nigerian heritage. Recalling my debuted collection that was showcased at the New York Fashion Week, a few people asked after the show; “A kid made that?” Yes! I did, at age 10 in 2015. And I am changing the fashion world , to silence the body shaming bullies, one dress at a time.

I was bullied because of my size, so I chose to create Chubii line (chubiiline.com) and @bullychasers! Check them out please
