An Austrian national married to the other half of monu & monu Ltd., Nigerian born international Actor/Director Nick Monu.
After initial training in Fashion in her home Austria, Simone attended the World renowned London School of Fashion where she first learnt and fell in love with West African strip cloth. In her native land she spent over ten years working as a designer in two of the Worlds most famous theaters, the Staatsoper Wien and the Burgtheater. This "theater period" gave Simone an invaluable understanding of the history and techniques of clothes making through the ages and across cultures.
Simone draws, cuts on the dummy and her early training as a seamstress means she can also make to the highest standards and more importantly in the Nigerian context, pass on her skills to her local staff.
