NKASIOBI Set To Disrupt The Fashion Industry With Diversity And Inclusion

New innovative fashion business, NKASIOBI, announces their launch as a multifunctional women lifestyle brand and a luxury eCommerce Platform

NKASIOBI, meaning “comfort” in Igbo, looks set to challenge the status quo in the world of fashion as the brand aims to cater to the needs of fashionistas, especially women, by providing them with a wide range of premium products to meet their diverse needs. Founded by John Nwankwo, a product developer and entrepreneur, the brand’s versatility, offering something for every woman, regardless of size, ethnicity, and background, stands it out in the industry.

NKASIOBI was created to be more inclusive in fashion. Not just by race and body type, but by the brands. There’s so much talent in fashion that many consumers don’t know about. I want to change that and introduce exciting talent from Africa, the Middle East, South America, and Asia to the USA market,” said John Nwankwo, Founder and Fashion Director at NKASIOBI.

Currently worth over $1.9 trillion, the global apparel and footwear market is projected to reach $3.3 trillion by 2030. However, many of the brands in the market do not particularly offer the versatility and inclusiveness desired by most customers, which is where John Nwankwo and his team at NKASIOBI are looking to make a difference.

We are a small black-owned business that partners with emerging brands from Tbilisi, Paris, London, Asia, Serbia, and some in Los Angeles. Our mission and goal for growth is to be diverse in our brands, our product sizing, the type of models we use, and the messaging of positivity that I feel is lacking in fashion and the world,” said John Nwankwo.

The brand has a unique approach of creating positivity with fashion, offering products that meet the yearnings of consumers by working with diverse models and influencers as well as fashion designers to represent all kinds of beauty, and celebrate inclusion with sizes, race, and age.

The categories of fashion products currently offered by the brand include staple statement pieces and seasonal collections, with plans to offer handbags, shoes, and other accessories as the business grows.

The stylist and fashion merchandiser launched NKASIOBI as a a multifunctional lifestyle brand for women and a progressive luxury eCommerce platform offering an array of premium products to cater to a discerning and educated clientele who consumes designer goods from leading brands, globally.
