About Helen

Creativity and inspiration struck Helen Chukwu at a very early age and She knew quickly that playing with dolls and playing dress-up meant something very different to her. Playtime became an expression of style and creativity where she would channel her talents through ideas generating fabrics and trims. It never occurred to her that she would want to do anything else but be a fashion designer.

At a young age, she became the CEO of Helen La Costura which launched in the UK and Nigeria in 2011 as she attends Bellerbys College in Brighton UK, pursuing her Foundation Degree in Arts, Helen spent a great deal of time in Dubai and in Lagos working with Dubai’s Bonco Nero Fashion House, and with renown Nigerian fashion designer Lanre Dasilva Ajayi respectively, and does plan to take this brand global in the near future. Since the birth of the brand she had an opportunity to have a private showcase in London 2013, this increased Celebrity Endorsement Worn by Katie Cleary at the Oscar party 2013.

She also participated in Runway Dubai 2015 Spring Collection “Vida Du Lujo”, which pulls inspiration from bespoke and couture design, the colours were rich and bold with intricately detailed trims and embellishment.

Whilst she reside in London for her Bachelor of Arts degree in fashion design at Instituto Marangoni and finished in the year 2015. For inspiration, she travels extensively around the world, veering away from tourist attractions to experience remote villages, local museums and neighbouring sights, which sparks the most amazing and exciting ideas for both her women and men’s wear (coming soon).

She forged ahead to attend finishing school in Switzerland (2016), at Institut Villa Pierrefeu in Montreux, where she got different inspiration from tradition, modernity and culture which has influences on her creativity as a fashion designer, She has taken on the role of public speaking and mentoring young girls and women in her society.
