OliveAnkara Originals PR Launch Campaign 

Media Relations | Influencer Engagement

Born and raised in Italy by Nigerian parents, founder Ifeoma Ubby started OliveAnkara (OA) to make African inspired clothes that can be worn by women of all races. The brand began as a side project for the then molecular biologist, with a doctorate in genetics no
less, whilst based in Singapore in 2017 and has since become her life’s passion. OA’s first collection launched in June 2017 and turned
heads with a combination of storied Ankara (African wax print) fabric with Ifeoma's own designs, a reflection of her own mix of cultures - Italian craftsmanship and Asian and African designs. The slow fashion brand places quality and uniqueness above all, and has worked towards a zero waste goal.
