100 Black Women to Watch in Canada 2016 : Award win

Voted Best Dressed Nigerian in Canada 2016: Award Win


My name is Nwando Kartia  Onyeka. I am a wife, mother, nurse and skin care consultant. As

far back as I can remember, I had always had a love and flare for fashion and style. Back in the day

growing up as a teenager in school, I remember wearing my school uniforms always a little different

from the other girls! I usually hemmed my skirts a little shorter and added some beads for good

measure…hahaha. Of course my friends, you can imagine that there was always some price to pay

on my part as the teachers were not particularly enamoured by my creativity!

Anyway…….., I had always wanted to be a model back then but because I never had the support or

professional guidance that was required to transform this dream into reality, I was never able to do

much about it and it remained just a dream for quite a long time, tucked away someplace in my

heart, waiting to blossom. Looking forwards however (notice how I didn’t say looking backwards?), I

honestly believe that this is the perfect time for me to showcase my love and flare for fashion and

style with the perfect backdrop of the maturity and self-confidence that I now possess. My three boys

are all grown: 21, 16, and 14; and I am at that point in my life where I am actually able to follow my


My parents have ten children of which I am the sixth child. My siblings call me “ndomma” meaning

“beautiful”, some of my friends call me “catalog”, my husband calls me “my fashionista wife” and I

call myself “Kartia Velino”. I am very optimistic about what life has to offer, I go for the best in life and

I believe in aspiring to inspire other women with the same zeal that I have.

I invite you to step into my world and enjoy MY LOVE AND FLARE FOR FASHION AND STYLE! It

will be a beautiful ride and you are welcome to ride with me!
