Noting that trending African-inspired designs are rarely made on the continent, and that many of the people in Liberia are disadvantaged due to the turmoil in the country, Bernard decided that making the fashions in Monrovia would be the ideal move. So she created The Bombchel Factory and began selling fashions, made by people affected by Ebola, out of her fathers pick-up truck
And their journey is just taking off!Her Kickstarter campaign to take her fashions global has already surpassed its goal with a month to go. And, it doesn't hurt that the fashionable ladies on An African City have been rocking the styles, which is all the affirmation needed to know that it's dope
