How O’eclat, Nigerian fashion brand is out to enrich lives.

[:en]

Gbemmy Johnson is the brain behind the African rising handbag brand O’eclat. When Gbemmy started her brand in 2010, she worked with two young artisans. They had skills but had no space to exercise their hand craft. Their situation reflects the situation for many young african youths who have managed to enrol and finish a hand craft training. With no workspace nor start-up capital, these enthusiastic youths end up juggling multiple professions in the search for fast money. Gbemy decided to equip a space where these young artisans could actually practice their handcraft.

“So basically, what I do at O’eclat is more about creating social value and impact. Being able to improve lives of people who have probably been out of jobs, people without source of regular income nor the finance to set up their own workshop for the skills they have learned. I want to impact the lives of people around me”…Gbemmy,
