You may recognize Coura as one of our stunning models for Sseko’s latest collection, but you might also recognize her as a contestant on this season of American’s Next Top Model (Season 24). Coura has a rich cultural background and we love the empowering advice that she offers other women who want to achieve their dreams. Read her interview to get a glimpse into this amazing woman’s life…
Jessica Rey was one of our beautiful models for Sseko’s latest collection. You may recognize her from her role on Power Rangers, or as the founder & CEO of Rey Swimwear! A self-described “mompreneur,” Jessica is such an inspiration as a woman who has gone after her dreams and continues to be an incredibly dedicated mother. We know you’ll love getting to know her a bit through this interview.
We were thrilled to have Ian and Hannah Pratt model for the launch of our #heforshe collection this season. Besides being one of the cutest couples you ever did see, this husband and wife duo run The Weller Society – a social club and coworking community space in Portland, Oregon. They both are incredibly creative with an evident passion and gift for bringing out the best in people. We know you’ll be inspired as you get to know Ian and Hannah through this interview…
We were honored to have the incredibly talented Lamic Kirabo as the face of our FW17 collection. Lamic will always hold a special place in Sseko’s heart as the first Ugandan model to rock the cover of our seasonal catalog. Besides being an amazing model, Lamic is a hard-working and inspiring individual. We hope you’re able to get to know Lamic a little better through this interview…
One of our key tenets at Sseko Designs is “Ask hard questions.”
We welcome tough conversations with open arms! One conversation that we feel is important to jump into is that around the MLM (Multi-Level Marketing a.k.a. Direct Sales) business model.
Did you know that Sseko Designs is an MLM business? We weren’t always structured this way, but over the past few years we’ve made an intentional shift to sell products through our community of Sseko Fellows. As we dove into this sustainable business, we worked hard (and continue to work hard!) to create a model that is ethical and empowering every step of the way – for every woman involved, from those who create our products to those who sell them.
“But wait… isn’t an MLM a pyramid scheme?”
It’s that time of year again! Whether you’re headed back to school yourself, or shopping for someone who is, we’ve rounded up our top back to school picks to take your campus style to the next level.
(Oh, and we can’t neglect to mention that each of these items are from an ethical brand that is making the world a brighter place!)
We all want our wardrobes to reflect our personality, but how do we express various aspects of our style without adding clutter to our closets? We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite tips for keeping your closet fresh and fun without making unnecessary purchases. Buying better is always preferable to buying more.
This season we’re focusing on brave women that inspire us. One of those women is named Chandra Fredrick, and we are SO excited to introduce you to her.
Here at Sseko we deeply believe that every great journey begins with a small step. The Sseko Fellows are a tribe of women that have embarked on such a journey to create opportunity and community for women here in the states, as well as for our sisters in East Africa. One of those Fellows, Cassie Fussle, recently took a step into our Fellows community. This is her New Beginnings story!
“Danielle has incredible charisma. The girl lights up on camera and her enthusiasm is completely contagious. She’s on her way to becoming an internet celeb! She’s constantly coming up with new and creative ideas. When something that works for others doesn’t really work for her, she doesn’t let herself get frustrated. She stays positive, uses those original ideas as a foundation then thinks creatively to build something unique that works for her. Danielle recognizes opportunities that others might overlook, and turns them into gold.”- Alyssa Singh, Sseko Mentor Fellow
