In this episode, we have Yoanna ‘Pepper’ Chikezie, British-born Nigerian, who’s truly a Fashion mogul. She started her career as a Stylist, a Fashion Editor of FAB and TW Magazine, and then in 2013 became the Head of SPICE TV – Africa’s pioneering fashion channel. Now she’s pursuing her passion to drive growth within Africa’s fashion eco-system with her startup The Assembly: a community and platform for emerging talent, students, entrepreneurs, professionals and independent businesses in the fashion and creative sector. Pepper truly epitomises #blackgirlmagic, and she graciously shares advice, tips and resources on how we can build a business, too.
