Swahili Fashion Week 2011: Jacqueline Majebelle (Pictures)

“Spiritual, Christian, artistic and hardworking, Jacqueline Majebelle was born in Tanzania but she moved to London when she was 8 years old.

After graduating from Hurling and Chelsea Secondary School, she further encouraged her talent by research and designing, and tried out for Project Runway, only not to get through. Not fazed, she kept on designing and went to design school only to drop out after 2 years to work on herself.

After 11 years, she came back to Tanzania and was inspired by the culture. 4 years since then, she’s worked for many fashion companies like Top Shop and Selfridges and this year, she and her team are working hard to put J. Majebelle on the map.”
