My name is Jennifer. I live in Togo, West Africa with my husband and our 3 boys. We have 2 dogs, a cat, 2 hens and a rooster. We are a happy bunch!
I am a British-Nigerian. I was born in London. My family lives in London. I have lived and worked both in London and Lagos, I embrace both cultures fully. My husband is German, his family lives in Hamburg and its regions. Yearly, we share our time between Togo, Nigeria, UK and Germany.
I can almost say I have a blend of two continents, Africa and Europe, which strongly affects my outlook and approach to life.
I worked with British Vogue, Lehman Brothers and Morgan Stanley UK and was the Director-General of the Nigerian-German Chamber of Commerce in Lagos, Nigeria. Today, I am a Fashion and Social Entrepreneur.
Living and working out of Togo is a pleasure, but I often see the hardships of others; I also see the effects of our consumerism first hand; this is what put me on a fast track into becoming a conscious producer and consumer. It has metamorphosed my label into more than just clothes but a story of changed lives. A tale of Fashion with Passion and Compassion.
