Lola's African Apparel

Berkeley, CA

On a trip back home to Nigeria, Lola took $1,000 and produced as many outfits as she could.  She brought them back with her to the US and began selling them at a weekend flea market.

Her clothing not only is a thriving business, but helps boost a sense of identity to her African-American customers – in a small way, helping combat a legacy of slavery.

She's super charming, and her fun selfie videos have given a big boost to her social media channel, and her business.


Her goal?  Ankara fabric will be like Levi's.  Nobody even thinks about it... everyone is just wearing it!
