The Afro Unicorn™ Vision
Owner and brand founder, April Showers had a dream to create and build a positive-driven line of apparel that perfectly reminds women of color how unique, divine and magical they truly are – just like a unicorn. Through her powerful message, clothing and accessories, her goal behind the designs that feature an ‘afro unicorn’ was to be a constant reminder of how special the wearer is and how much impact they have on the world.
Afro Unicorn has a diverse collection of products featuring t-shirts, swimsuits, dresses, bags, and even beach towels, all of which fully equips the its customers with all the magical powers they need to go out and be a trailblazer; setting the trends and living their best lives.
It’s a Movement
Just as founder April Showers always imagined, the purpose of Afro Unicorn hasn’t stopped at fashion and lifestyle. It has become a platform, a community of people from all walks of life. A place for people of color to be connected, empowered, elevated, and supported on their professional and personal journeys; providing a safe space for them to flourish.
As a visionary, April also dedicates her time offering business development services for other growing brands and entrepreneurs. From workshops to e-books to audio books and one-on-one consultations, she offers her knowledge of how to build a successful business to others to pave a clearer pathway to securing multiple streams of income. Through Afro Unicorn, April successfully transformed her brand into a community, attracting over 17,000 engaged, loyal Instagram followers turned Afro Unicorn tribe. Her sense of empowerment when it comes to building a network is inspirational for so many and her iconic brand has garnered endless interest across the nation, even from the likes of celebrities and social media influencers.
The biggest and greatest achievement, however, is that Afro Unicorn has changed lives. Representation matters. Babies, little girls, and women can proudly and unapologetically flaunt their Afro Unicorn merchandise, go to Instagram and see beautiful brown and black Unicorns that look like them, and happily declare that they are ‘unique, magical and divine.’
