Nia Ndewele, founder and CEO of Nia Fashion always gravitated to the expression of Art. As a young girl she was always creating art pieces, metallic string designs of copper and gold that she would force her family to buy. Fiber roses which was the influence of her mother that she would sell for Mother's day. Relocating from Philadelphia in 1975, Nia went on to explore creative venues.
Her first creative expression in the world of fabric and design was her own take on handmade ribbon roses which she later incorporated the use of African fabric. She became known in the city of Los Angeles for her roses. The Los Angeles Street Scene, Kingdom Day Parade, Christmas parades, Rose Bowl parades were just a few of the events that got her the recognition. Thru a motivational crisis Nia was spiritually led to the renowned fashion design program at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College.
