Yomi Akosile and Akin ColeName: Yomi Akosile and Akin Cole

Age: 29

Company / Profession: TeddyBear Clothing

University graduates Yomi and Akin launched Teddy Bear Clothing Club in 2007 in an attempt to create something they could be proud of. With Yomi having graduated in Graphics Design & Photography and Akin Business Management and Finance, the two spotted a gap in the market for a quirky clothing line. Joining their skills together the duo did their research to identify what was out there then created a logo and began selling T-Shirts using Facebook as their main marketing portal. Through developing their basic black and white logo, adding colour and offering different varieties, the brand began to expand to a point where Teddy Bear Club T-shirts were worn by JLS at an X-Factor final.
