Don’t give up: Success takes time – Founder House of Usanga – African Startups


African startup TV is proud to showcase House Of Usanga fashion collection, a contemporary African fashion label in Lagos.
In a one on one chat with the founder of house of Usanga, Mrs shummailte Usanga, she told us how she found love in fashion after she escorted her friend to a fashion design training school.

She said that prior to learning how to make clothes, she had a mini-mart where she sells groceries but she had no joy in doing so, it was just something she had to do to leave home, return in the evening like every other person.
She told me that it was her friend who had constantly pestered her to go to a fashion design school, where she discovered her talent.


The house wife come fashion designer said that she was so determined to succeed that she started making dresses 3 months into her fashion design training.
Walking through the showroom one can only imagine what our African fabrics could do, the clothes were glamorous than everything we saw online before approaching them for the interview.


The factory is a standard one with various design equipment, heat transfer, sewing machines, embellishment and accessories etc.
Mrs Usanga shares a love story of how her husband stood with her all through the time she wanted to go for the training, invested in her and gave her everything she needs to get started.
