Nigerian-American designer and entrepreneur Buki Ade is dominating the swimwear industry through her culturally inclusive designs, called Bfyne. While on vacation Buki realised a lack of creativity and representation of African designers in the swimwear market and decided to start her own swimwear line. Inspired by trends in West African fashion, Bfyne swimwear infuses African patterns and colours with bold and sexy cut outs in expected places.
