“I started Urban Trendz ten years ago, with the help of a grant aimed at supporting black communities, and over time it has become a hub in the area.
“Everyone knows who I am now, they know my door is always open, and it has become more than a place where people can come and buy clothes.”
Urban Trendz sells a variety of clothing lines, from hip-hop and emo styles, to Rasta and urban fashion.
David Okwesia, owner of Urban Trendz, is this year celebrating 10 year of business in Spring Bank.
It also recently launched its Beats Bus Community Studio at the back of the shop – a portable music studio which can be packed down and moved around the city.
To mark 10 years of business in Hull, Urban Trendz has also unveiled its new website www.urbantrendz.co.uk
“In the next few months I am looking at introducing some new clothing aimed at under 10s. We have lots of parents coming in who want to dress their children up in the fashion, but there is not much choice around in Hull at the moment.
