Jarikre: Pioneering Change In Nigerian Fashion Entrepreneurship With ‘Handmade in Lagos’ Approach

Jarikre, the trailblazing fashion e-commerce platform, is making waves in the Nigerian fashion industry with its innovative ‘Handmade in Lagos’ approach. This strategy aims to revolutionize the entrepreneurial landscape by addressing critical challenges faced by fashion businesses, both local and international.

Speaking at the launch of the physical store in Lagos, founder and CEO, Alfred Jarikre, stated: “Our vision has always been rooted in transforming the fashion experience in Nigeria. The ‘Handmade in Lagos’ initiative is not just a strategy; it’s a redefinition of how fashion businesses operate.

Addressing the challenges in the fashion industry, Jarikre stated, “We recognized the struggles our entrepreneurs faced with high Minimum Order Quantities from overseas vendors.
