Project Description

"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.

THE BOX

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.

The Project FAQs

Some of the potential risks and challenges that we may encounter but are confident that we will overcome are these:

  1. The vendors that we source from will be producing fashion within specific seasonal schedules. As a new company we want to manage expectations as much as possible and ensure that we can deliver in a timely manner. In an effort to deliver our boxes in a timely manner during the first 6 months after the launch we will accept subscriptions on a bimonthly basis and then transition to a monthly basis once we are able to ensure a consistent delivery schedule and time frame from sourcing to shipment and directly to our client.
  2. Limited Production from our African suppliers can also be a challenge as well so we will only allow a limited amount of subscriber clientele on our order list. At launch we will allow a specific number onto our list. Following our launch we will grant exclusive access to a select number of clients each month for a limited time period on a day of our choosing. Although this is an unusual method and may be seen as limiting to growth we will use this as an exclusive marketing strategy to drive interest and anticipation to grow the brand
  3. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that each and every one of our clients are completely happy with their subscription box.  We will do so by requiring clients to complete a very detailed questionnaire that our professional stylists will use to curate specific to each client.  Because of the care that we intend to take with each individual package we will have to limit our return policy to returns for damaged product or sizing issues.
