The Birth of Abike Oyedele (Designs by Abike)

We like to think of the story of Designs by Abike, (now simply Abike Oyedele) as the manifestation of a seed.

As the daughter of a successful entrepreneur, Abike knew from a young age that she was meant to own her own business. Like most entrepreneurs, she didn’t exactly know what that business would be or how it would all come to fruition.

In May of 2010, Abike lost her daughter at four weeks old. She went on to experience 8 more losses before finally giving birth to a healthy child. This challenging time rendered her unable to keep a job. She started making clutches and bags and teaching herself to sew. In December 2012, she opened up her Etsy shop and started selling her items, beginning her path to entrepreneurship.

With three children and a full-time job, her dream of running her business full time started to go on the back burner. In October of 2019, her family moved to Charlotte, NC. At this time, she decided she no longer wants to pursue a career in corporate America. Instead, she decided to focus completely on her passion and calling: Abike Oyedele.


Our Team

Abike is the founder and visionary. She maintains the site, selects the fabrics, designs, sizes, etc.

She’s also the face of the customer service team. Any inquiries you send is likely being responded to directly by Abike herself. She really takes the customer’s satisfaction personally and seriously.

Abike is also one of the tailors. She typically makes products only for the ready-made collection because it allows her a better opportunity to manage her time.

Ronke A.

Ronke is a crucial part of the team. She’s the head tailor in Nigeria and she’s known for her great attention to detail.

She’s a wife & mom and is ecstatic at the opportunity to create her own revenue stream to support her family and create a future for her children.

Our ready-made collection and made to order garments are typically fulfilled by both Ronke & Abike.


Ám̀ma A.

Ám̀ma can also be referred to as a visionary. When you give her a sketch and ask her to create, her imaginations go wild. Tweaking things here and there to make the final product you see on the site.

Ám̀ma hails from Ghana and she’s also one of the tailors at Abike Oyedele.

She’s also a wife & mom and she loves creating both at the sewing machine and in the kitchen.
