Black women have been known to excel exceptionally in several fields today. Here are couple of outstanding black brands owned and managed by Black women.
Marshay is the Founder and CEO of Buzzoms, a clothing line tailored to women with D+ breasts. All clothes were designed to be trendy, useful for everyday wear, and supportive of women's boobs while honoring their curves. Buzzoms is more than dresses and tops for curvy women. Buzzoms is the start of a braless revolution for full-chested women of all sizes.
2. Oluremi Martins
Just like many Natural Queens, she never seemed to get the perfect twist out or many beautiful styles she wanted to try with her hair no matter how many times she watched her “ fave gurus” on Youtube. She founded Natural Girl Wigs, the first Afrocentric unit with the help of my hairstylist.
The Wigs are made by local black hairstylists in Lagos and Texas.
3. Ruth Nakaar
Is the founder of Fudena. Growing up as a first-generation Ghanaian American, the food and culture of her parents’ native country Ghana played an integral role in her upbringing. Fudena aims to become America’s first chain of fast-casual West African restaurants. At Fudena, you can customize your bowls full of familiar grains, veggies, proteins, and stews while still getting a taste of West Africa.
