German entrepreneur Jan Wippermann continues to carve out his own space in the industry as he builds his own fashion brand, LAKOYA, featuring luxury streetwear.
While LAKOYA is seen to make waves in the fashion industry, it has already amassed more than 6,000 followers on social networking service Instagram.
The brand has unveiled its first shirt named “Lakoya Clo,” which features a powerful rainbow print. It carries a strong statement that says: “Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, But to add colour to my sunset sky.”
The item, which was posted on Instagram on March 29th, has garnered almost 1,000 likes, with followers already expressing their support for the shirt’s release.
Jan also teased fans and followers with the anticipated release of the “Analysis of Lakoya” shirt.
Jan started his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 13, where he opened his first online shop through his own pocket money.
“My father has always been an entrepreneur. This has always been one of my motivations in pursuing this path. I have always been fascinated by entrepreneurship,” says Jan.
An entrepreneur based in Sylt, Germany, Jan is an e-commerce expert who has extensive knowledge in online sales strategies and the different platforms used to conduct digital sales on a website.
Jan, in fact, has a massive following on social media with a whopping 113,000 Instagram followers so far.
“The thing is, gaining followers to your social channels is one of the crucial factors to help entrepreneurs reach their prospective audience,” says Jan.
Jan, who previously raised a lot of brands in dropshipping, advised those looking to start their entrepreneurial journey to continue pressing forward amid the adversities.
“Just keep going. Losses are a normal part of life. Sometimes you have to fall down. And when you fall down, you just have to get up and keep going. Never give up,” says Jan.
When asked about his favourite life lesson, Jan answers: “You just can’t let life happen to you. You have to make life happen.”
