Founder, Adolophine

Adolophine is from the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly known as Zaire). Adolophine is Baluba and grew up in Kinshasa. As the daughter of a Diplomat, Adolophine has traveled to many countries and developed a zealous interest in philanthropy, languages and cultures. Adolophine’s diverse background and ability to speak six languages fluently gives her the flexibility and understanding to bridge gaps between different cultures. Adolophine has always had a love for commerce, design and fashion. Her mother, Georgette, bought goods in Europe and then sold it in the markets of Kinshasa. "The colors, sound and energy of the markets in Kinshasa are a part of my soul," she says. Growing up, Adolophine was surrounded by strong women who ran their own business. It has always been a dream of hers to follow in their footsteps
