Last year, on the 6th of August 2022, we embarked on an incredible journey as Bittany made its grand entrance into the UK exhibition scene. With our first-ever exhibition and runway show at the Manchester Lighthouse Venue, we were thrilled to be a part of the prestigious BOB Expo.
BOB Expo, the UK's largest shopping experience for cultural and diverse products, was founded in 2018 by the visionary Monique Kufuor. This platform provides a space for shoppers to discover products and services that meet their needs while empowering black businesses to be more visible, grow, and contribute to the UK economy.
Our presence at the BOB Expo was truly memorable. Our stand buzzed with excitement as we made meaningful connections and showcased our designs on the runway for the first time in the UK. It was a surreal experience, filled with style, creativity, and a true celebration of our brand.
As a slow fashion advocate, our founder, Fikayomi brought her sewing machine to the event, offering an additional service to help people mend their clothes. This was a testament to our commitment to sustainability and enabling individuals to prolong the life of their garments.
The occasion held a special significance for us as it coincided with our founder's parent's visit from Nigeria for her MBA graduation. Joined by her closest friends from different cities, the energy at our stall was electric, forging new connections and achieving remarkable sales. It was an unforgettable experience that marked a significant milestone for Bittany.
Now, we invite you to mark your calendars for this year's BOB Expo. On July 29, 2023, from 10 am to 6 pm, join us at Manchester United's Manchester Suite for an unparalleled shopping experience that celebrates and supports Black-owned businesses at their finest.
