Pretty in Pink
Ethical fashion entrepreneur Autumn Adeigbo started a colorful, women-focused fashion brand with the vision of positively impacting the lives of women in Africa and the United States. Autumn became inspired to become a fashion designer by watching her Nigerian mother sew the clothes she wore as a little girl. She was voted ‘best dressed’ in the 4th grade.
After attending Spelman College and Parsons School of Design, she worked her way up from intern to associate, working with the top fashion stylists in the world. She launched a collection of seven African-inspired dresses while hostessing at New York hot spots and pitching her collection to magazine editors as she sat them at their tables to dine.
Autumn is the 36th black woman to raise $1M venture capital for a company and the first black woman to raise $1M for a fashion brand.
