#WorkingWomen Spotlight | Afro Urban Fusion

This week’s #WorkingWomen are : Vivian UmezinwaCEO & Creative Director of AFRO URBAN FUSION

Business:

Afro Urban Fusion is a Print Lover’s Heaven. We offer handmade urban quality clothing and accessories made from the finest of African Prints to little ones from Newborn to 6 years old. Our pieces are timeless and functional. We strongly believe that children can be stylish while promoting their cultural heritage.

Background: 

My name is Vivian Umezinwa (Founder & Creative Director) and I am a print junkie. My childhood dream was to become a fashion designer and I would always make clothes and accessories for my dolls. But as I grew up, I strayed from this dream and got into the IT field. However, when I had my beautiful baby, I started making clothes for her which a lot of people appreciated and made enquiries about. From my love for Print, my heritage and making clothes for my baby, Afro Urban Fusion was born. And I am focusing on the little ones because viewing life from a child’s eyes/perspective makes me fearless and hopeful.

What being a #WorkingWoman means to them:

Two of my favourite quotes are: 1.) “I may not be the strongest, I may not be the fastest, but I’ll be damned if I’m not trying my hardest.” 2.) “There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.” These quotes explain everything I believe a working woman is and they are some of the words I live by.

How do you ensure that women know their worth in your area of practice?

love my heritage and it shows in every print I pick out and every item I make and through this I encourage every person to remember and embrace their heritage.
