A must watch. Generous and passionate, Autty Samba communicates her passion for fashion with natural: "Samba is my first name, this brand is me, it's what I am, what I believe, what I stand for, what I want to offer to society", she said.

Sometimes associated with summer fashion, African couture has yet to properly penetrate the Maltese market. Yet, with Malta's growing African community and the resulting multiculturalism, fashion is set to open up more widely.

In this interview, Autty Samba talks about her life, moving from a successful career as an accountant to the bold venture of creating her own fashion label. It was her adoration for African fashion that drove her to take this perilous leap, abandoning the lure of a lucrative job to pursue her dreams.
