Maju is a fashion house that creates accessories, footwear, and ready to wear clothes for women. Created in 2008 by Motunrayo Jimoh, their mission is to cater to the fashion needs of women of all sizes. The first 'feel' you get of Maju is how vintage and contemporary their creations are. They walk a fine line between modern and old school, and they walk it perfectly. Maju makes me think of the perfect definition of a Lady. I'm loving it.
Purity, maturity, grace, and style is what Maju aims to portray whenever they cater to a lady! Below is an insight into Maju and its founder Motunrayo Jimoh.
What inspired you to start Maju? I love shopping for clothes. Whenever I would go shopping, I would see a dress or an outfit I like but think it didn’t look so great because it lacked a certain detail. So one day I decided instead of looking for that perfect outfit, why don’t I just create it.
How do you get inspiration for your beautiful pieces? I love to travel, discover new things and meet people. I get my inspiration from the people I meet, places I travel to and my friends.
What vision do you have for Maju? To be one of the most successful fashion labels in Lagos, Nigeria by catering to the fashion needs of women of all sizes.
How do you handle the business part of Maju while still keeping things creative? I’ve got a PR team run by Princess Irede Abumere. And they’ve been tremendous help to me.
What message/feeling/image do you wish to convey with Maju? Maju is an accentuation of feminine beauty which I try to portray in my creations. I try to convey an image of purity, maturity and grace.
