Fashion Week may have come and gone, but for Achieng Agutu, the experience lingers as a testament to her journey in the realm of fashion and influence. As a seasoned influencer, Achieng's presence at Fashion Week was more than just attending shows; it was a statement about representation and inclusivity in an industry often criticized for its narrow standards of beauty. Reflecting on her fourth Fashion Week, Achieng observed a disheartening trend: a widening gap in inclusivity among brands, particularly in showcasing diverse body types. Yet, this realization only fueled her determination to assert herself in the fashion space, challenging stereotypes and proving that curvy girls can exude confidence and style in any ensemble. Achieng emphasizes, "Fashion is not about fitting into a mold; it's about breaking barriers and embracing who you are." Since transitioning to full-time influencing in the fall of 2021, Achieng's journey has seen notable transformations, both personally and professionally. Embracing the power of delegation, she recognized the importance of building a supportive team to alleviate the burdens of solo entrepreneurship. With a dedicated team by her side, Achieng found herself with more bandwidth to focus on her creative endeavors and foster a thriving community around her brand.

"Achieving success in the influencer space requires more than just individual effort," Achieng remarks. "It's about surrounding yourself with a team that shares your vision and values, empowering you to amplify your impact and reach new heights." A typical workday for Achieng is anything but typical. Balancing her professional commitments with personal rituals, she carves out moments for self-care, indulging in her "hot girl walk" and savoring a nourishing breakfast before diving into her workload. Whether it's attending events, meetings, or photo shoots, Achieng ensures that her days are infused with both productivity and self-care. "With the hustle and bustle of daily life, it's crucial to prioritize

self-care and maintain a sense of balance," Achieng advises. "Taking time for yourself allows you to recharge and show up as your best self, both personally and professionally."
