"My mother left us with plenty of clothes when she passed on. I had only one sister, and I had plenty of clothes to resize so that I could fit in them." 

"Imagine being nine with a whole closet of clothes that don’t fit you? I did the resizing out of love, and I think that’s how my love for designing grew,” She narrated. 

Nato further narrated that as she grew up her love for passion for fashion design also gained momentum and despite a lack of family support who were not into the idea, she managed to redesign her late mother's clothes.

Through regular training and hard work, Nato found a specific taste in fashion and through friends and well-wishers managed to have a breakthrough into the market gaining fame and accolades.

Nato who is now an international award-winning fashion designer has celebrity and famous clients both in Kenya and beyond.
