In the past few weeks, I’ve bought more Nigerian brands than I ever have in the past.
I’ve discovered new names, I’ve been filled with admiration for the women and men running their businesses despite the many challenges they face.
I’m particularly interested in ‘inward-looking’ brands, those for whom dressing Nigerian women is as important as other goals.
