Meet Ibukun, a wife, mom of two teens, and seasoned Project Manager in the Health Care industry.
Originally from Nigeria, Ibukun's formative years were spent in the bustling city of Lagos. Fuelled by her love for cooking, reading, DIY projects, and fashion, she set out on a mission to pursue her dream as a successful entrepreneur.
In her own words...
My journey started when my 11-year-old daughter faced some challenges wearing her beloved Nigerian clothes to school. Teasing from classmates made her feel ashamed of her heritage, and as a mom, I couldn't stand by and watch her lose confidence. Her teacher suggested an African design to celebrate her uniqueness, but I couldn't find modern designs that suited her style.
That's when the idea struck me - why not be the source of Afrocentric fashion in my corner of Dallas/Fort-Worth? I decided to create DesiZ Kollection, a brand that not only empowers and celebrates women of all colors but also showcases the beauty of African colors and culture.
Today, her daughter proudly models for the brand, providing input for designs and even creating her styles for girls. Join Ibukun's journey of empowerment and cultural celebration through DesiZ Kollection!
