Hey! So Glad You're Here.

In 2011 she launched her first fashion business. She purchased a 1970’s Shasta Camper for $600. With the help of two-family friends and herself, they fully renovated the camper and created, the District of Columbia's first mobile boutique on wheels, “Couture on the Beltway.” The rolling boutique served as a hub to showcase and sell contemporary imported fashion apparel for emerging African Fashion designers.

 

Brigitte is the first to say that many doors opened after tracing her roots to Africa, and unexpected opportunities arose. To name a few, she never imagined being contacted by the Smithsonian Institute to serve as the 2013 model coordinator for the “Will To Adorn” project. She was the presenter of “How To Start A Mobile Business” at Prince George’s Community College. In 2013 she served as Director of Marketing for the Miss Africa USA Pageant and a judge for the Miss Guinea Pageant.

 

One of her most favorable accomplishments was producing and directing “Glamaroon,” the first-ever fashion show sponsored by the Embassy of Cameroon held at Howard University in recognition of Cameroon’s National Day Celebration. She also had the pleasure to style Hollywood actress Sheryl Lee Ralph for a special occasion at the residence of the Ambassador of Cameroon.  

 

Brigitte’s goal is to visit all 54 countries in Africa, her commitment is to continue to empower young girls through her personal story. She desires to create an NGO to assist underprivileged children in Africa. During the pandemic, Brigitte founded and established “Errands For Grandparents” a FREE personal errand service for underserved Senior Citizens in the Washington, DC area to help with grocery shopping, prescription pick-up, doctor's appointments, and other selected errands. 

 

Brigitte is the mother of two children Brandon and London, and one beloved grandson Blake.
