I'm Makisa, the Owner and Creative Director of JoVew by MAKISA. I've forever had a love for art and romance for as long as I can remember, and also dreaming the unimaginable. This enthusiasm for creation ventured me down the part of design. I obtained my BA of Fashion Design in Fine Arts from the Caribbean Academy of Fashion Design in 2012, feeling like I was on top of the world. Then a couple months later my mother passed away and my world stopped.
In this episode I share with Jo-Ann, how I found and pursued my passion. I firmly believe this is where it all begins and encourage you to do the same.
- Growing through pain
- Her mother’s role
- Makisa’s journey to finding her passion and purpose
- Working with others to take your own personal flight
- Creating a fashion brand in the Caribbean
MORE INFO ON
My love for romance, my ability to dream the unimaginable came to a standstill. It was not until over a year later my world began to turn again, and now I can create my love story between my brand and myself through the JoVew handbags which I’m so honoured to share with you. JoVew by Makisa was unofficially launched in 2014 while I was an assistant designer at a Fashion clothing company. The passion and commitment I place into creating a love story between you and your handbag is what the brand is about.
