You don’t need to take a second look at #BBNaija Shine Ya Eye housemate Arin to see how much she loves contemporary fashion.

An independent arts and culture curator who strives to promote contemporary art in Africa as a means of self-expression, Arin began her own womenswear brand, Nola Black, at the age of 18, in 2010 while she was still a student at the University of Lagos.

After going on a break to further her education, Arin relaunched Nola Black in 2017 and since then, it’s been all the way up. From showcasing a collection at the 2019 GTBank Fashion Weekend and AFI CapeTown Fashion Week to dressing some of your favourite celebrities including Idia Aisien, Stephanie Coker-Aderinokun, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Ozinna Anumudu, Eku Edewor, Fade Ogunro, among others.

Yes, the Big Brother Naija platform brings much-needed exposure for further expansion, but Arin is not new to the fashion designing business. She’s good at what she does and these celebrities rocking her beautiful pieces are proof:
