Since then, Obioma Fashion has expanded to reside in Nigeria and Chicago, Illinois.
The Meaning Behind Our Name:
The term “Obioma” comes from the indigenous Igbo group of Eastern Nigeria. After losing the Biafran Civil War that lasted from 1967 to 1970, the Igbo people got to work. They carried sewing machines on top of their heads while walking around the community mending people’s clothes. Beginning as these humble initiators they’ve transformed into multi-millionaires carrying with them a story of strength and resilience. Branding the term Obioma for our fashion label, we carry these inspirations with us by representing the Igbo people in our logo and strive to serve the public with humility and care.
