What does your company do?
Nich LuxuryAfrica is a company that promotes Africa excellence in the area of Art, Design and Luxury Lifestyle. We work with high end, high quality products Made in Africa. We initially started in 2014 as an online blog promoting African Art, Design and Luxury through www.nichluxe.com. This year we launched a retail space, in collaboration, called Department Store in Maboneng which sells African Luxury design brands like Maxhosa by Laduma, Thula Sindi, Hamethop and One of Each.
What has been your biggest success?
The launch of Department Store this year. Finally long time readers of www.nichluxe.com are able to buy from us and the relationships we cultivated with designers since inception has afforded us the opportunity to work with the best in the business. Also, I get invited to speak at local and international forums to promote Made in Africa brands.
What has been your biggest hurdle?
Funding. We've lost out on a number of opportunities due to lack of funds.
