Raised in The Bay Area of California, Shadé credits her Nigerian-American upbringing and extensive international travels as her main creative influences for designing. With a Studio Arts degree from Spelman College and an Accessories Design degree from Fashion Institute of Technology, Shadé works as a freelance surface print and accessories designer in New York City. From her Brooklyn home, Shadé currently shares her work with several brands at a time, while cultivating an ever-growing global textile collection filled with influential prints, patterns and colors. Shadé's design aesthetic was featured in the Summer 2015 of Disfunkshion Magazine. As the Creative Director and Designer of Printed Pattern People, Shadé translates traditional ethnic patterns and textiles into modern reinterpretations for everyday wear. For Shadé, she says, "My personal world, from childhood to present day, has always been multicultural and my passion for creating a global fusion lifestyle and brand has only been nurtured by my love and appreciation for art and design."
