Culture Pod: Episode 8 | Our Experiences of Racism #BlackStoriesMatter
The Culture Pod is hosted by two sisters, Adeola and Ronke-Jane who are the creators of the African print clothing brand Cultureville. we recently quit our corporate jobs to run the business full time so we speak on our experiences as young entrepreneurs from corporate culture to the struggles of adulting.
As two young women born in Nigeria and brought up in the UK, we longed to walk into a store and see clothes that reflected our African heritage, in stylish designs that we could easily incorporate into our day-to-day wardrobes. Nothing like that existed at the time, so we set about creating it.
We started by listing a few African inspired dresses on Depop and received overwhelming support, so we created an entire collection of luxury, hand crafted clothing and accessories featuring stunning Ankara wax prints made in West Africa by tailors and artisans and made it available worldwide, and so Cultureville was born.
