Yasmeen Opare

Yasmeen Opare

Yasmeen Opare co-founded Ashanti Swimwear in November 2016 from her bedroom in London. Her inspiration for the African inspired swimwear line came from living in Ghana for 6 years and often travelling back for cultural events. As the kente cloth of Ghana was originally created for Kings and Queens, all the Ashanti Swimwear pieces are designed with detail and quality to make customers feel like absolute royalty.

In less than a year Ashanti Swimwear has built a strong social media presence and has been featured in Essence, ELLE Magazine, Cosmoplitan.com, CNN, Huffington Post, Buzz Feed and many more.

Aji Ayorinde

Aji Ayorinde

Aji Ayorinde is the founder of a fashion start-up named Made in Africa (MIA). The idea behind the MIA Project is to provide a platform for formalwear handmade by highly skilled tailors based across the African continent and to place the spotlight on other African based creatives. A derivatives lawyer by trade, Aji started MIA in response to frustrations with the way that trousers were designed, and at a wider level, frustration at the way that African fashion is represented globally. Aji sees no reason why an African brand cannot compete on its own terms. By continuing to focus on quality, MIA aims to position itself as a viable alternative to other global brands - the only twist being that all of their products are handMade in Africa.
