Our mission is to reshape the narrative about African fashion. No longer is Africa’s fashion industry only synonymous with Ankara prints but it’s a fresh, deeply imaginative world of its own. So, what is Africa’s fashion scene like? Think androgynously tailored suits; streetwear that has an other-worldly cool; embellished gowns infused with cultural accents; leather purses with a one-of-a-kind aesthetic, and best of all, inclusive.
Flitinc has the latest in runways, designer news, fashion pop-up and events celebrating the continent’s creatives. Our Fashion Finder tool is a great way to access brands and discover new ones, including black designers, sustainable products, and independent labels.
Africa’s fashion industry and its designers – whether on the continent or part of the diaspora – are on the rise.
I was born and raised in the Midwest but now reside in Los Angeles. My name originates from my Nigerian heritage, and growing up, I thought of my heritage as a bridge between two worlds. Due to that, I have great respect for and enjoy meeting people from all walks of life. Possibly, the only thing I enjoy as much is finding unique fashions and new designers.
Coming into adulthood, I delved deeper into the richness of Nigerian – and greater African – culture, including fashion. Being inspired, I wanted to find a way to introduce a wider audience to different fashion industries with the vision of ushering more designers into the larger fashion ecosystem.
Naturally, I’m a curious person who enjoys learning, spending time with family, and embarking on adventures.
