Iguehi James is a Nigerian-American born and raised in Oakland California. She never imagined that one day she would be a designer, but here she is.

Love Iguehi was born out of her desire to create apparel that was beautiful and within her budget. Starting a business was not the first consideration or even on her mind, but Iguehi discovered her love for sewing when she picked up a sewing machine and taught herself how to sew in the Fall of 2015. Her friends, and even strangers, asked her where she bought her clothing and once they found out that she made the items she was wearing they unabashedly asked for their own pieces. As her talent and experience grew it became clear that Iguehi had a gift for sewing by eye, a talent for picking fabrics and a keen sense for fashion. With the encouragement from friends and support of her husband, just one year after teaching herself how to sew, in August of 2016, Love Iguehi was born.
