Jendaya luxury African Fashion marketplace

Jendaya launched as a destination where the old world meets the new school, a people-powered luxury ecommerce marketplace, with a strong African flavour.

Headquartered in London, they partner with boutiques and brands from around the world, committed to making a positive impact in the luxury industry. With sustainability initiatives reflected in the made to order designs that are encouraged on the platform helping to combat fashion waste, they are also working on providing business-friendly debt solutions to designers.

CEO Ayotunde Rufai got the idea for Jendaya when shopping for luxury goods in London on behalf of relatives in Nigeria. That sparked the seed of an idea to bring luxury fashion with reasonable delivery times to the continent, although of course you can shop on Jendaya from just about anywhere in the world.

A place where consumers living across the globe with a deep appreciation for the richness of our African culture could enjoy a curated shopping experience. Setting a new diverse standard for luxury, where everyone has access. Exclusive capsule collections, collaborations, and metaverse drops. The next generation luxury fashion experience where everyone shops live.
