When you consider the power of presentation you know there’s more to getting dressed than simply putting on clothes. Sola's instinctive awareness, combined with her unique life experiences led her to launch ImageCube to help people harness the power of image.
Born in Dallas, Texas to Nigerian parents Sola was raised for much of her childhood in Nigeria while her parents received their undergraduate and graduate degrees in the U.S. Her cultural experiences included clothing that was most often handmade by a tailor. Through family connections such as her maternal grandmother, a fabric merchant and paternal grandparents who were active in the community Sola gained knowledge of how powerful image can be at an early age. Fine fabrics, talented tailors, and colorful, well-tailored clothing helped to shape her interest in the power of beautiful, purposeful, and personalized clothing.
With a BA in Sociology from Wellesley College, MBA coursework from Post University, and more than a decade in the corporate world from Boston, Chicago, and Indianapolis, Sola brings intuitive knowledge, a practical awareness of corporate culture, and proven research and theory to her ImageCube clients.
She is a certified image consultant of the Association of Image Consultants International and a certified Myers-Brigg Personality Type Practitioner, and Sola is the fashion and image contributor for “Indy Style.” She has also been a featured fashion expert on The Indianapolis Recorder’s Recorder-On-Air-Report.
Sola lives her vision every day, volunteering for community non-profits Dress for Success of Indianapolis, Indianapolis Society of Human Resource Management, and Mentoring Women’s Network.
