Amy Iheakanwa, founder of shoe and accessories brand Shekudo, shares why she uprooted her life in Sydney to move to Lagos, Nigeria to grow her brand, how she works with local Nigerian artisans to create her iconic styles, why she is adamant that her pieces will always remain handmade by local craftspeople even if this means turning away orders that would result in tens of thousands of dollars, as well as how she managed to get featured in the pages of Vogue of Grazia.
