The story start when shopping would be a nightmare for Ouma Tema, its either she found what she wanted but never in her size. Everything in her size had grandma written all over them. When life gave the business woman lemons she decided to make lemonade.
Ouma Tema started making her own clothes sharing it on social media, friends and fellow plus size ladies kept on asking where she got all the clothes and sharing with her their shopping frustrations. She saw the gap in the market and launched her own fashion brand targeting plus size women. Her mission is to challenge the stereotype concept that curves have no place in the fashion industry.
Today she has a fully fledged show room and workshop at the SA State Theatre from operating in the boot of her car and garage at her apartment.
Ouma Tema is a passionate business woman with interest in fashion marketing and communications. She is today one of the sought after designer for plus size women in SA and neighboring countries.
