Woenyi is a Cameroon-based brand whose primary focus is on the well-being and happiness of women through fashion. It takes interest in everything that makes a woman who she is: hairstyle, make up, nails, clothing and accessories. The brand has an online beauty centre – a virtual platform through which women from all over the country can book appointments for home service and/or for purchased items to be delivered right to their doorsteps.
Woenyi was founded in 2017 by two Cameroonian sisters: Mouto Mathilde and Madolla Laura. Mouto Mathilde, 28, is a computer scientist with a passion for the power and advantages of social networks especially when it comes to business. Madolla Laura, 26, is a marketist with a great talent for beauty and fashion. Both women believe in women’s entrepreneurship and are aiming to work with as many indigent women as possible so that they can empower themselves with a source of income and not have to be idle or jobless.
Woenyi Fashion Show 2019 will be the very first fashion show to be organised by the brand. The fashion show will showcase the first collection of clothes by Woenyi as a brand. Also, it will promote young Cameroonian fashion creators/designers. Above all else, the show is targeted at ensuring the promotion of Cameroonian culture and history through the world of fashion.
