Abisola Omole, or Abimarvel as the majority of her community refer to her as, is a London-based Creative Director and CEO of The Apārtment Global Group (TAGG). Starting her career back in 2008 by creating a fashion & lifestyle blog, Abisola shortly after went on to contribute to titles that included MSN & Grazia, whilst studying at University of The Arts London. She then went on to launch The Apārtment in 2012; at the time it was a creative hub for online creators, where they could foster organic relationships & partnerships with brands, create content, discover new products & feel a part of the newly forming online community. This project lead to a range of digital brand consultant positions and by 2014 The Apārtment had developed into a digital & creative agency that today, now specialises in event production/ design as well as digital & brand strategy. In 2017, the development of two further companies began. arva, a contemporary consumer lifestyle brand and studio arva, an interior styling & design led studio. All companies sit under the TAGG umbrella. Along with holding the position of CEO & Creative Director of the group, for 7 years (2013-2020) she held the position of Brand Director at Cube Collective, a 360 digital atelier that specialises in social media strategy & brand communication. Throughout her career, she has worked with a number of brands as an Ambassador, Creative Director & Campaign Partner. Notable collaborators include Clarins, Hyundai, Warner Bros, Grants Whisky & Karen Millen, just to name a few. Primarily speaking, her digital platforms act as a window into the realities of a 20-something entrepreneur and aims to push the perceptions of what a plus size, Black Woman in the fashion, lifestyle, digital & business industries, can look like and achieve. In July 2020, she joined the Harper’s Bazaar US team as their first plus-size fashion columnist.
