12 years old Alanis Neka Nwadire has inherited a wealth of fashion knowledge from her designer parent and sibling.

Growing up under the influence of a family of reputable African fashion design names Iconic Invanity and DNA by Iconic Invanity, Alanis knew what she wanted to do at the age of 9 – start her on fashion label designed exclusively for young girls.

Neka Youth was born in 2018 and had its debut that same year at the Lagos Fashion Week.

A friendly, fun and stylish approach to fashion for young teens, we see in the brand’s Spring/Summer 2019 a subtle transition from the shy innocence of childhood to a coming of age of a confident young woman.

For Alanis, it is more than just fashion, Neka Youth is about community, family, culture and heritage.
