Adele Dejak

Anglo-Nigerian Founder and Designer, Adele Dejak, first established the label under the brand name Magik Grace Art & Design Limited in 2008 in memory of her mother and out of a love for fashion accessories. Growing up in Nigeria, Adele shared a unique bond with her maternal grandmother over a love for beads and accessories. So much so that she would save all her pocket money to buy necklaces, bracelets, amulets and wallets at markets in Kano and Kaduna (Nigeria). This love ignited at a young age soon became a passionate business venture for Adele.

Running a jewelry business in a foreign country however, was not like scouting for beads and jewelry for her grandmother. When Adele relocated to Kenya around 2005, she had been making pieces for herself when her talents were spotted. People really loved the pieces she made and this gave her the courage to designs and testing the local market in Kenya before deciding to open up shop in Nairobi.

Now, a 13 years later, Adele has a strong presence in popular hotels and shopping malls in Kenya and has become a leading handmade-in-Africa affordable luxury brand. She has utilised years of excellent feedback to continuously improve on and reinvent Adele Dejak designs. With a workshop and showroom in Kiambu (on the outskirts of Nairobi), Adele has refocused her energies on generating merchandise for export, while local stock sold to the local market through existing partners such as hotels and lodges.

As a trained photographer, graphic designer and typographic designer, Adele Dejak has used her formal training to develop a compelling brand identity.

This knowhow has helped introduce international markets to the brand with an immediately recognizable, professional image that positions the brand for success.
