  • After 12 years of sales and marketing experience in the luxury cosmetics sector, Stefanie founded sustainable jewellery label Juna Fae with her sisters. Their mission? To modernise a traditional industry towards sustainability with conscious choice of materials and ethical production methods. Their jewellery, made from lab-quality diamonds and recycled 18K gold, is sold online and the launch was massively picked up by press, influencers and celebrities.
  • With the launch of its first campaign in September '23, Chlues brought my vision of sustainable children's clothing to life. As a mother, faced with regularly buying new clothes for my fast-growing toddler, I strive to offer clothes that not only grow with me, but also resist daily stains. Chlues has since been known as far away as South America, and its commitment to fighting fast-fashion and excessive waste remains central. Find out the challenges Chlues faced when started her business to bring positive change to the world of children's fashion.
