Exodus Stores commenced business in October 2013, with the primary objective of providing a retail outlet for African Designer labels.
Africa is blessed with so much creativity in every sphere especially in the area of arts, crafts and fashion. Over the years, there has been such an evolution in African fashion that our Designers are now being recognised internationally. Fashion events such as Arise, Lagos Design and Fashion Week, Africa Fashion Week as well as Ndani have brought African fashion closer to the rest of the world. However, there is still a gap in the area of retail and distribution as a lot of Designers lack the exposure and platform they require to showcase their creativity. Staying true to their roots, the Designers at Exodus Stores translate the colorful African tradition into contemporary clothes and accessories that can only be described as works of art.
Through Exodus Stores we are bridging that distribution gap. We bring African Designs closer to the rest of the world by providing a safe, reliable and accessible on-line and in-store platform for both the Designers and their customers all over the world. Our mission is to see our African talent become household names globally. We would like to see someone wearing ‘Sura the Tailor’s’ beautiful well finished outfit at a dinner in Paris, on a catwalk in New York, at an award show in Los Angeles…………We aim to make African design labels accessible to everyone, everywhere.
We’re very passionate about this. Embark on this journey with us and join us in making history as we become the premier destination for contemporary African fashion and accessories.
