Inspired by the European fashion and designers such as Stella Jean, Nanawax and Sika she decided to start her own collection which was launched few days ago.

Olahitan is the name of the collection which means “ happiness never ends” and the logo of the brand takes its inspiration in the Door of No return located in OUIDAH, BENIN. It is Known as the place where the first slaves left for their tragic destiny.

Gloria says:  “I decided to cross that door again and Take Back my history and Legacy, The prints”.

Her goal is to show that African fashion is not “Too much” but chic and classic oriented.

Looking at Olahitan clothing the adjective “classy” perfectly describes the collection.
