Representation matters and if you don't see yourself represented what would you do? Well, like many other Qweens before her, Angela K decided to create a space to showcase the talents of Ivorians in the fashion industry, and so she created Ivorian Fashion Bloggers.
What is the inspiration behind the name?
I chose to have a simple name, Ivorian Fashion Bloggers (IFB), for the page, since the only thing that distinguishes my page from others is the content.
When did you start IFB?
I started featuring creatives on IFB on the 16th of December 2016 on Instagram.
Why did you create IFB?
I got inspired to create IFB by other similar pages on Instagram which promote fashion bloggers and fashion enthusiasts from Canada (Montreal especially), Nigeria and Congo. I wanted to show that people from Ivory Coast are killing it in the fashion industry as models, stylists, bloggers, and enthusiasts. I wanted Ivorians to be recognized on a platform dedicated just to them.
What is one thing you tell yourself to stay motivated?
As a fashion enthusiast myself, I always want to discover the fashion world in an Ivorian perspective. I want to bring forward the talents and creatives from my country.
Who inspires you the most?
I am inspired by other African entrepreneurs and bloggers.
