Yasmine with friends
Yasmine Sangari, CEO of Sugarkoated.com an online fashion boutique for women, brought together Ghanaian stylist Empress Jamila and make-up artist, Margee to discuss women and entrepreneurship in Ghana under the name: ‘Mixers With Yasmine’.
The event held at Level 8 lounge in Airport City, Accra, Ghana, proved to be multifaceted as it included a fashion preview of Shop sugarkoated.com’s Casual, Glitz and Glam, and Nude collections. Each model was dressed in pieces that could be worn for different occasions. The event was supported with sounds and vibes from DJ JP along with mocktails and cocktails curated by Level 8 lounge mixologists. In addition to cocktails and conversation, ‘Mixers With Yasmine’, collected lightly used clothing and funds which went to The Charlotte Light Foundation, a non-government organization geared toward supporting children with HIV AIDS in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Yasmine lead the conversation with both Empress Jamila and Margee. The discussion covered challenges faced in business, marketing tips and advice for young people committed to starting a business and sustaining their businesses.
“I did not want to just work a job. I wanted to get paid for doing what I am passionate about, which is enhancing beauty with make-up. I love what I do.” Margee said when asked what inspired her to start a business. On the other hand, CEO of Styles By Trey and celebrity stylist, Empress Jamila, shared that she got her start after a woman told her she could get paid for styling people.
At the end of the beautiful night, we caught up with Yasmine Sangari, to tell us why she put this together and she had this to say, “I just wanted to bring everything I love together, fashion, women entrepreneurs, good music and good vibes. We need more events like this where women can come together, have fun and support each other. We should be working together, not against each other.”
