Ten-year-old Nigerian girl bullied for her weight debut her fashion line at New York Fashion Show

Her name is Egypt Ify Ufele, a Nigerian Fashion designer who has become the only child designer to dress curvy models at New York Fashion Week. Ify who is based in New York said she kicked started her career as a fashion designer because she was constantly bullied for her weight at her grade school in Queens, New York.  But instead of letting it get her down, Ufele started hand-sewing clothes for her dolls and eventually learned to use a sewing machine to make clothes for all body types.

She now has her designs, Chubiiline,  which she says are about "bringing Africa to American at a time."
