The best way to describe Bee’s work to the American
market will be to say that she is like the Betsy Johnson of Africa, bold,
colorful, unique and flamboyant. Bee is an Artist.
As the owner and creative director of
B’ExotiQ Designs, she has been in the fashion business for 17 years and there
is no stopping her. Bee’s designs have a lot of influences because of her
travels and her heritage. You can see imprinted in her designs Russian dolls,
African symbols and of course her signature Bees. She is also fluent in
English, French, Spanish and Russian.
