It's evident that Liberia has been through some things from civil wars to Ebola, but that doesn't hold the people of the country back, especially not the women. Take Archel Bernard for example, who has created an initiative that keeps you stylish while also changing lives.

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.
You can find out more on Archel Bernard and how to shop Bombchel through the website, but also follow them on social media (Twitter & Instagram) so you can stay up to date on the fashions that are changing Liberian lives one stitch at a time.
