“Rebranding Africa: this is what drives me everyday.”
Aminata Kane’s business is responding to the lack of local affordable and fashionable clothing for Senegalese professionals. Her company, Fula&Style, takes an IKEA approach to designer clothing, selling clothes in boxed kits comprised of pre-assembled fabrics and matching accessories that customers can bring to their favorite tailors to ensure the perfect fit. Fula&Style’s goal is to source and produce locally in Africa and to work hand-in-hand with the far-reaching community of Senegalese tailors.
Originally from Senegal, Aminata has fueled her passion for fashion and incorporating different cultures through extensive travels around the world. Before enrolling at MIT, Aminata worked at McKinsey & Company France, designing strategies and operations for consumer goods manufacturers, telecommunication providers, and banks in Europe and West Africa. She also gained experience interning at Goldman Sachs and at the French Business Confederation (MEDEF).
Aminata is pursuing her MBA at the MIT Sloan School of Management. She holds a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Management from HEC Paris.
