Owner/Designer

Yetunde Sarumi is an exceptional young fashion designer whose trade signature lies in the delicate combination of elegance and class with bold African prints.

Yetunde’s passion for creating beautiful apparel was inspired by the traditional attire her mother would make her when she was a child, from Nigerian Aso-Ofi fabric, which she would proudly flaunt.

Tracing her heritage through fashion, Yetunde became a fashion student to learn and develop the techniques in design and sewing that have led to the successful establishment of her own brand. Yetunde’s mission is to create garments for women that are enjoyable, flattering, modern and reminiscent of West African fashion.

Why We Do It

YS Gives Back! Percentage of each purchased item goes to an organization called, Towunmi Coker Literary Initiative (TCLI). TCLI promotes reading and writing culture among secondary school students in Lagos State, Nigeria. Their aim is to inspire, develop, promote, and support students in Nigeria secondary schools, who have a flair for writing with intent to impact their environment through literature..

TCLI and YS are currently working together to encourage and teach students how to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. We'll work on helping them to develop their passion and show them how to get started.

 

Building a Library in Nigeria

TCLI seek your support in their vision to build a standard community library in Lagos, Nigeria. They encountered some problems with the limited libraries in Lagos, which include inefficiency, obsolete books, poor research environment and low student involvement. This is why they have chosen to create a platform to increase literacy in the country by building an effective, resourceful and internet accessible library for the community. Their goal is to engage the young and old minds by providing access to information that can educate individuals who in turn can improve the society.
