HOW I MADE IT IN AFRICA? HERE’S MY UNIQUE AFRICAN JOURNEY….

WHAT’S BEEN YOUR STORY? HERE’S MY UNIQUE AFRICAN JOURNEY….

It started in 2009 when I embarked on a journey I would never have imagined.

I travelled to Ghana to explore my heritage from Africa to the Caribbean and I experienced a life and culture that simply hit home…I was literally home.

I returned back to the UK and began my first Masters degree in Ethical Fashion now with a focus on Africa and I set up my own clothing label returning to Ghana that same October.

But this ended disastrously.

I got ripped off by my tailor who ran off with my patterns, trims and samples and I had the police involved.

Why did that happen?

Because I never implemented my learnings during my career.
Because I never had the right connections.
Because I never had a business coach.
Because I took recommendations from a friend.
Because I worked with a 1-1 tailor by the roadside.

Since then I have developed a 6-step blueprint system that prevents such happening again and my clients use it today to export as much as 4000 pieces from Africa to their home country.

This system is now open for you to use, to rinse and repeat so you can source, sample and sell with ease!

You are in the right place if you are a designer, brand or creative entrepreneur with a heart to impact Africa and with a wish to build a sustainable fashion made in Africa business, but struggling with the how, the where, the what, your why and who with.

To help you on your journey I would like to give you a free gift. A guide to 7 fashion business ideas you could start in Africa. Have a look it’s free.

Then if you wish to know more then do get back in touch. I will be here…or somewhere in Africa  but waiting to hear from you.
