Launched as a tribute to the African Women’s Decade 2010 – 2020, The MsAfropolitan Boutique celebrates the entrepreneurship of Africa and diaspora women as a one-stop shop for fashion, accessories, art and gift collections made by women of African heritage.
In 2011, it was featured in the Huffington Post, catchavibe, SOAS World Magazine, Women of the African Diaspora, Lime Mag, Divascribe, CIAAfrique, Promota Magazine and Afro Diva Ent to name a few.
In June 2011, the MsAfropolitan team presented an inaugural fashion show at the V&A Museum in London titled ‘MsAfropolitan presents ‘The Rise of Afropolitan Fashion’. The event showcased couture from the brands available in The MsAfropolitan Boutique as well as from some of Africa’s largest fashion houses such as Tiffany Amber, Jewel by Lisa and many more.
“The MsAfropolitan Boutique aims to provide a platform where design by women of African heritage can be celebrated and reach a wide audience. Our goal is to, in the spirit of Ubuntu, return creativity to community and to create a space for African female-led entrepreneurship. We believe that creativity in form is storytelling and when it finds its community the outcome is transformation,” says founder of MsAfropolitan.com Minna Salami.
Customers are invited to a shopping experience that centers around community and empowerment, including distinct and affordable products as well as a portfolio of the brand’s stories in the MsAfropolitan Boutique Interview Series. Each brand in The MsAfropolitan Boutique has been chosen for their unique inspiration from the African continent and beyond. Products available include men’s and women’s fashion, art, gifts and accessories.
Items in The MsAfropolitan Boutique make the ideal purchase for shoppers who value items that have meaning and who support niche causes.
