Antoinette attended Our Lady Of Apostles (OLA) Senior High School in Ho and currently at the Institute Of Chartered Accountants Ghana (ICAG).

When OuiMama Started

“Had the passion when I was very young, say primary 6. But I didn’t take it seriously until a year ago when I decided to quit the office job and focus on my passion” she said.

“So formally, September 2018, after my National Service” Antoinette added.

Antoinette said the fact that she didn’t really learn how to sew until now makes her feel she lagged in the pursuit of my dream. But it is never too late to do what you love. “Doing what you love actually makes you less tired than doing something you do not love”.

You know what they say about mothers right? The people behind all the hard work to produce those stunning dresses are a daughter and mother team, whose mission is to provide clothing with top-notch designs to the Ghanaians and West Africa and beyond through the use of modern technology, creativity, and expertise.

“I did not allow what people said about me quitting my job and pausing on my CA (Chartered Accountant) get to me. This is what I wanted so I turned a deaf ear to all they said and I can say I have no regrets.

“If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin” this quote actually pushed me to start my business.
