Afribix CEO Jamie Ogbuigwe

 

AfriBix was created by Jemima Ogbuigwe known as Jamie to friends and family. Jamie is a certified personal trainer whose passion for body positivity and inclusivity led her to build AfriBix, a brand with designs that are bold, elegant, promote individuality, celebrate diversity and are functional.
The patterns, prints and designs for each product and collection are designed by Jamie. She puts a lot of love and intention into each design to ensure that each product is in line with the AfriBix motto "My Body, My Art, My Way". Jamie is very passionate about creating prints and patterns that empower people, promote love and celebrate Humanity. 

 

In Jamie's words

"In my dreams, I am creating. I see a world where people who value individuality, style & heritage wear everything AfriBix. Fashion to me is wearable art that’s functional, daring and cool. Pieces that transcend single use, pieces you can wear over and over again and style for different uses. Pieces that help promote your personal message.

 

During the design process, it is very important to me that I create patterns & designs that incorporated culture, passions and heritage in a fresh way. With AfriBix, you don’t just get a product, you are gifted an experience too".

 

Covid-19 contribution - As part of my contribution to making the times we live in a little bit more bearable, I have subsidised all our face masks to make them more affordable. AfriBix is currently not making any profit from the sale of our masks.

Causes

As part of our commitment to positive change, 5% of our annual profit goes towards charitable causes. Each purchase you make, helps increase our ability to be a force for good. Since our launch, we have contributed to three organisations in Africa - 

Abuja Fun Walk - An annual charity event created to promote awareness for HIV/AIDS and Sickle Cell Anemia.

Mamas In Need - A charity focused on addressing the issues and challenges women face during pregnancy in rural villages in Africa.

Emmanuel Foundation for Missions - A charity set up to support the poor, widows and orphans in Africa. EFM in 2019 renovated a secondary school in Abuja, Nigeria and also donated books, stationary and shoes to the school.

With your patronage, AfriBix will positively impact more lives in Africa.
