‘Buy a Bag Save a Life’.
“You must attend to your business with the vendor in the market,
and not to the noise of the market”
— African Proverb.
…That’s exactly what Juls did in 2018. She ignored the noise, distractions and the storm!
Juls is not one to sit and wait for things to happen, she makes them happen, with an infectious energy and passion that empowers her to think big, she pursues her goals with such intensity and focus that anything, but success is unthinkable. Wife and a mother of three, a grandmother, a breast cancer survivor running two businesses, not to add her non-profit organization “Pink For Africa” to ask the least of Juls is simple and basic – “ Where do you get your strength? and how do you do it!?”
The Birth of Jul’s Collection:During her journey in the storm of breast cancer, Juls had a sudden and profound understanding of something! That something was her decision to create Jul’s Collection, a luxury line of leather handbags and fashion accessories. For inspiration, she went through the closets of her mother and aunties and so many women who influenced her fashion world growing up. Today her tag line is ‘buy a bag save a life’.
