About Founder & CEO Priscilla A. BROU:
Born in Gabon (Africa), Priscilla grew up in an Ivorian-Gabonese household with an Ivorian mother from Ivory Coast. The family lived in the multicultural city of Paris (Sarcelles) where she also met her husband StephaneBrou, whose family happened to also be from Ivory Coast. The couple later moved to the 17th Arrondissement of Paris and got married. In 2014, Priscilla gave birth to their beautiful little boy, Joachim, and one month later the family moved from Paris to settle in Brooklyn, NY.
WHY SHE CREATED A BRAND:
With her classic African European style, Priscilla B. was inspired by the impression her friends, associates and co-workers had of her unique upbringing and fashion sense. She was moved to showcase her culture as only she could, through the eyes of an African who grew up in Europe. She started out designing a clothing line that featured traditional West African Ankara fabrics but later decided that handbag design was where she could really express her eclectic life experience and create bags that line herself would be from here and there and traveling the world.
