Origins of Galapego and Its Founder
Born and raised in West Africa, I eventually migrated to the United States where I would be exposed to an array of different styles of clothing unfamiliar back home. Living in New York as a young teenager I was introduced to some of my favorite clothing brands. Having their own unique aura and formulated design, these companies struck my creative spark and urged me to take an opportunistic step through the doorway of the fashion industry.
After graduating from College with a business degree, the concept of starting my own enterprise gradually came full circle, and, in time, gave birth to Galapego. The name is a result of my recurring interest in the Galapagos Islands and their connection with evolution. I immediately fell in love with the name not only because it symbolizes change, but because it promises a thriving future, one of unpredictable transformation and balance.
Galapego is a fashion label for men and women. Our style incorporates a modern-age look, straight-laced yet sophisticated. Inspired by everyday life, as well as other periods in history, Galapego is an aim at the popular culture target. By continuing the ways of thinking and producing, our clothing will give people an imaginative dose of tomorrow and pave a revolutionary road into the fashion industry. Wearing Galapego is an experience, a seam that will stitch everything and everyone together.
