Aderonbi Odukoya, an entrepreneur and fashion guru based in Pretoria shared more insights about Aderonbi Culture brand. Aderonbi plans to have a production plant and academy to train people about shoemaking.

Aderonbi culture was founded in 2015 by Aderonbi Odukoya.
Her love for shoes drove her to design the type of shoes she would like to wear or purchase. Aderonbi Culture started with a pair of shoe. The brand was created as a solution to the frustration that comes with wanting to be unique and to stand out without being restricted by the limitations of traditional retail stores.

Who is Aderonbi?

I would describe myself as someone that likes unique things, an introvert, and a perfectionist.

How would you describe the Aderonbi Culture?

Aderonbi Culture is a brand that was started with the purpose of curing the atrocious frustration that is associated with the urge to be unique without being restricted by the limitations imposed by shopping from a conventional fashion shoe retail store.

Our focus has been on price, style, and accessibility. We at Aderonbi culture believe in quality at an affordable price, our shoes are handcrafted and made to perfection. Since its inception, the brand has evolved to also include matching belts, blazers, waistcoats and bags to match a shoe’s design. We have a wide range of designs available to our clients to choose from at affordable prices for any type of age and gender, there is something for everyone.

What do you do and where do you go to seek artistic inspiration?

Creating is a calling for me, I literally dream of shoe designs. Because I am an introvert and I enjoy spending time by myself, it makes it easier for me to create and design. Listening to music helps a lot too

What is your opinion on the fashion industry today?

As weird as it sounds, i am a very simple person and i am not that into the fashion industry. All i do is bring my imagination into reality, wear what makes you feel comfortable, what makes you look good and what makes you standout.

Fashion is how you express your emotions, your personality.

You founded Aderonbi Culture in South Africa, it is a unique brand. Why South Africa?

I started in South Africa because it is where i reside, it is easier to deliver to client, meet with them or go through the design process.

My plan is to have a plant here for production and also have an academy to train people. It is time to start exporting shoes outside Africa not importing them. Africa has alot to offer.

Where can people buy your products?

Presently through social media platforms
