We Want to Know What Makes You Feel Powerful

Inspiration, Our World | No Comments

We want to know what makes you feel elated, unstoppable and alive. We’ve been profiling several women who demonstrate leadership and style. From our collaborators: model and forensic odontologist, Dr. Amritpal Kaur Kalsi and cultural and social entrepreneur, branding expert Marcella Echavarria; to popular icons such as Kelly Rowland (who we’d love to adorn), the influential Coco Chanel and Michelle Obama.

In our case, there are two main senses at play – we consider how things will feel to the touch and we are also concerned about how different shapes will work together visually.

Our World | 2 Comments

I love markets. I go to Safety Lodge in (Nairobi) town, indoor ‘hotel’ market in town and Kariokor Market to get my supplies. Here are some pictures from my visit to Safety Lodge a couple of weeks ago.

From all these supplies that I gather, these are the materials that make my accessories –…

The unexpected positive response she received led her to consider taking her artistic vision seriously. The flagship MagikGrace which was later re-branded to Adele Dejak has since then expanded to an outlet at…
