The influence of Loxion Kulća on not only fashion trends, but the growing “Buy Local” culture – speaks to the convergence of Wandi’s instinct for culture and business growth.
The term “ghetto alchemy” describes how he collectively uses his experience and rich insights in fashion, content and business to tell stories that move people – from leading teams that have transformed Radio & TV stations into profit-generating, sustainable entities, to the 20yr old story that is his fashion brand Loxion Kulća.
