I am so happy to introduce you to Victoria Kageni-Woodard Owner of "Gusa by Victoria" [Address: 252 West Philadelphia Street York Pa 17401 Phone:717-324-3725]. Let me start at the beginning. I met Victoria back in early 2015, we both were contestants in the Rippin' Ain't Easy sewing competition. This is where I first witnessed her skills as a designer and her technical sewing skills are amazing!
Selling her designs is nothing new to Victoria but selling them in her own retail space is a new adventure. Not only is she selling her designs she will also play hostess to artists by providing studio space and also offering them a place to showcase their art in her galleries. This past Friday Dec 9th was the grand opening of her space with ribbon cutting by The Ambassador of Kenya Robinson Njeru Githae.
Mori and I surprised Victoria with a visit to her grand opening! I already knew she was a gem and I was happy to support this lady and wish her the best on this journey. We were able to meet a few of the artist at her grand opening. As always you know I had my camera on hand for this event so please enjoy the photos.Ophelia Chambliss. She also created the retail sign for Gusa by Victoria.
We also had the pleasure of meeting Artist Terrell Maurice and saw some of his artwork.
