The self-starter fashion designer based in York County has piles upon piles of colorful, patterned textiles she uses to create clothing designs of her wildest dreams.
Kageni-Woodard, born in Kenya, always felt a passion for sewing and design. With encouragement from her parents, Kageni-Woodard moved to the United States in 1991 and honed her skills at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
“It’s just fascinating to see that my life has continued to be this creative thing that keeps evolving,” Kageni-Woodard said.
In 2016, Gusa By Victoria was founded. Now, Kageni-Woodard works with clients across the country to create custom-made shirts, dresses and bridal gowns in her studio at 7 E. Market St. in York .
