Co-founders Kiran Yoliswa and Alae Ismail set up Styled By Africa (SBA), an award winning online destination for people interested in exploring the best contemporary African fashion. They handpick all the pieces from their own travels around the continent or through serendipitous meetings of like minded people in other parts of the world. SBA was awarded a social enterprise award from UnLTD and SOAS, as well as support from Richard Branson, who selected the company for a Virgin Media Pioneers trade mission in 2012. Through SBA’s editorial vision, Africa’s young creative entrepreneurs are showcased and championed through lifestyle content that spans music, art, fashion and travel.
