In a separate video posted to Akinbuwa’s TikTok page, a woman is heard complimenting the teen’s dress as she poses in the mirror. “You made that?” the woman asks in amazement before she expresses how beautiful she thinks the dress looks. Other voices in the video’s background can also be heard complimenting the young designer’s garment as she poses in a bathroom mirror and records herself.

“My friends loved the dress, and I got tons of compliments,” Akinbuwa told People. Her passion for crochet began at age 12, and she has since been fulfilling custom orders for friends, family, and followers. The young designer’s talent and creativity have not gone unnoticed. Her TikTok page showcases more of her crochet designs, hinting at a promising future in fashion. Akinbuwa’s post-college aspirations include becoming a fashion designer, a dream that seems well within reach, given her viral success.
