"Adorn" /əˈdôrn/verb, to make more beautiful or attractive".
Adorn Me Africa is a monthly subscription and styling service that professionally curates individual packages based on an extensive style questionnaire completed by each individual customer. The apparel that we include in each of the packages are all selections made from the seasonal collections of several designers that we have created a partnership agreement with in countries within Africa, namely Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa. We do intend to constantly broaden our designer relationships and offer exciting new fashion forward apparel for our customer base.
We offer 4 types of subscriber box options to cater to a range of budgets and customer needs. Our customers will have the option to upgrade their subscription at any time after successfully creating a style profile.While our aim is to grow, we plan to scale in the most manageable way possible. We will launch with a limit of 200 subscribers.We will offer the opportunity each month for new customers to sign up. Once we capture 50 new customers for that month we will close the subscriber list until the following month. Although this may be an unusual concept and may seem limiting to growth, we know this model will work best for us with fashion's seasonal timelines, managing orders, receiving international shipments from designers and any small hiccups that may occur.
