TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BRAND
My name is Blessing Idoko Omada and I am the founder of BeeBee Couture. I am 27 years old, I hail from Benue State but I was born and raised in the ancient city of Ibadan. I’m the first child of my parent, asides from my love for fashion I love music and have plans of taking it as a career.
My brand, Beebee Couture was birthed out of my love for looking elegant and beautiful without necessarily breaking the bank and of course, my love for making money was a factor too.
HOW AND WHEN DID YOUR JOURNEY BEGIN?
So when I was still young I would always choose my style during the festive period and I just loved the idea of being unique and elegant.
Fast forward to 2018, I started selling readymade outfits, the ones from China. Whenever I had an order and my supplier doesn’t have it available, I’d rather get the fabric and ask my tailor to sew it for me instead of telling the client it was not available.
In 2018 I knew I needed to switch to ready-to-wear but I didn’t have the money too but I started eventually I’m 2019 after I got an idea from OLARSLIM who started her clothing brand by collaborating with a tailor. So I started with different tailors at Yaba and the rest is history
