My name is Omolara Odupitan, Founder of Toyin LaTour. I started Toyin LaTour in 2014 when I was in the Air Force living in the barracks. I have always considered myself to be a free spirit and I always knew that one day I would go into business for myself. Toyin LaTour began simply as an expressive release. I am a visual artist, and finding different ways to express myself is very important to me. One of the main ways I do this is though fashion and the way I dress. A lot of times going shopping is chaotic for me because I don't like to purchase clothing most people have and I have a hard time finding clothing more my style. So I figured why not just design my own clothing? But what made me want to start my own brand were the reactions I received. People were so supportive and amazed by what I was creating that it made me want to share it with the world, thus creating Toyin LaTour. I hope this company helps people grow just as it helped me. "I may not change the world, but let me inspire someone who can." -Wale
