Lola's African Apparel

Greetings, I 'm Lola of Lola's African Apparel. I was born in Nigeria and moved to the United States at the age of eight. In 2010 I traveled back to Nigeria after many years in the States and I was inspired by the elegant and beautiful clothes people wore. I  had the idea to design and employ local tailors and seamstresses to make clothes and share them with my community in the United States. I knew that people would appreciate the artistry and culture of the clothes and the fact that they were made in Africa by Africans. My clothes quickly spread and thus the creation of Lola's African Apparel.
