Co-Founder of Collective Closets
Episode 2

Fatuma Ndenzako

Boss Woman Title:
Founder Collective Closets

Always be kind, life is too short to not be kind to others.


In Episode 2, Amber Bonney Bites Big with guest co-host Fatuma Ndenzako a new generation boss woman and co-founder of Melbourne-born brand Collective Closets, a slow fashion label that celebrates African/Australian heritage.

Inspired by Amber's own Mantra, 'bite big and chew like hell', in this episode, Amber gets under the skin of Fatuma's personal mantra, 'Always be kind, life is too short to not be kind to others'. We look at how Fatuma's own mantra came to be through her family and community, how it has filtered through her life from when she was growing up, to how it has impacted her work decisions.

We get under the hood and discuss the impact that previous generations can have on an individuals own outlook, and how Fatuma's, 'Give Back' philosophy intertwines with her mantra and her business, and how this ultimately helps to empower others. We talk about the business of kindness and how this has influenced Fatuma's ethical fashion business in terms of sustainability and the support of women both here and in Kenya.

Don't miss this exciting episode to give you a very different perspective on what the fashion industry is doing and how it is changing for the better both here and abroad thanks to people like Fatuma.

This episode is dedicated to a charity close to Fatuma's heart,  Sisters Inside - a charity supporting criminalised women, girls, children and families both inside prison and out. As Fatuma states 'we all make mistakes it doesn't have to shape the rest of your life'.
