Njema Helena

I am so honored to be featuring Njema Helena today, as the founders of this line - Anne, Cecelia and Annika Ostman - are extremely near and dear to my heart.  I first met the family when I attended boarding school with Annika who quickly became my "BFF."  The brand was started three years ago in memory of Helena Ostman, their beloved daughter and sister, whose life was strongly connected with Kenya and the beauty of African artistry. Exclusively produced in Kenya and sourced from Africa, Njema Helena strives to "create modern fashion with an African aesthetic for everyday life." This brand was started with love, and that love shines through in the quality and design of each piece of clothing. No detail has been lost in these perfectly feminine designs, something that I know the always-fabulous Helena would be oh-so proud of!  When you purchase a Njema Helena product, you are supporting the "Invest in Africa" principle, as well as carrying on the memory of beautiful Helena.
"In Swahili, njema means good, as Helena will forever be the good force that drives this venture forward."
