Stories We Love! From Guyana to Botswana – An odyssey in Fashion with Designer Delayna Scott


By Ariana Gordon – Guyana Chronicle

Migrating in 1999 to Botswana with her mother, Scott knew from an early age that she was talented. She would mirror her mother, who was a part-time seamstress while she lived here. “As a child, I would look at my mom sew clothes for relatives and friends, and I developed a passion for style and fashion. I always loved dressing up; a fashion statement was always important,” she told the Pepperpot.

Before migrating, Scott attended the Stella Maris Primary School and then the St. Joseph High School. She migrated while in Third Form, but continued her secondary education at Gaborone Senior Secondary School and the New Era English Medium. After completing high school, she read for a Diploma in Graphic Design at Genetics College and a Diploma in Pharmacy Technician from the Penn Foster College and in both instances graduating with distinctions. With a passion for fashion, Scott enrolled at the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology’s Botswana campus, where she obtained a degree in designing.
