Kelechi started her multi million dollar online store after receiving a compliment about her dress. Her idea was to share African-inspired designs with consumers around the world

“I didn’t really know what I was getting into, I just had a vision and I was excited about where that would take me.”

She combined her love for Africa, interest in fashion and skills in technology to create an online sensation.

Kelechi was recently recognized by Forbes in the Forbes 30 under 30 list for retail and eCommerce, however she believes that one of her proudest moments so far is creating jobs in Africa through a growing global demand for African fashion

Her advice to young entrepreneurs? “Trust your vision. Your vision for your life and company are really going to be what makes you stand out. No one is going to be able to see this vision, that’s what makes it so special, that what will set you apart from others, that’s what will make every morning exciting to work and build your company.”

Kelechi hopes to build a movement of artisans, consumers and people around the world who want to know the stories behind their garments; where they come from and who made them.

We couldn’t be more proud!
