Hello , I am contacting you for networking and conversational purposes and perhaps potential business opportunities. I just launched a fashion startup in Senegal West Africa , dakarboutique.com, and was just looking to build an international network. I am also a fashion photographer and was recently published in Vogue Italia and the New York Times.

You can read more about the company and our business philosophy below. Dakar boutique is the first online store in Senegal that provides shipping and home delivery in Senegal and worldwide. We provide a wide variety of products for men and women through the various brands.

We are also about to launch an African market on the site alowing african designers to list their items if they adhere to our standards in order to reach the international community. We are thinking of unique and beautiful african products such as jewelry, masks, wrap skirts, traditional dresses, african art, etc...

From a branding and marketting standpoint, the company targets all income classes with prices ranging from $10 for make-up to $3000 dollars for Yves Saint Laurent bags. The website and facebook page were designed to evoque a mood of luxury and exclusivity while providing a colorful escape that inspires our clients. The Dakar Boutique client is avant garde and sophisticated with a modern minimalistic style warmed with vintage statements and a love for the classic luxurious names. We will attempt to provide them the best shopping experience in the country with a great customer service ran by the family and home deliveries through our 'James Bond' service represented by a multi-lingual driver with unmatched elegance in a vintage mercedes. Ultimately we want our clients to feel like royalty when ordering through our website.

Senegalese people are know for being colorful, happy and most importantly passionate about fashion and style and that is what we hope to leverage on. The company also allows third party sellers to rent space on our site and list their products if they adhere to our quality standards and business philosophy.

Finally, the company is linked to a non-profit foundation dedicated to the education of under-priviledged children worldwide and especially talibes in Senegal. A portion of Dakar Boutique's profits will directly go to the the foundation and help sponsor children's education. Visit and support us at www.gem-initiative.org

In 2011, Hope Lodge facilities across the country provided more than 250,000 nights of free lodging to nearly 40,000 patients and caregivers – saving them more than $23 million in lodging expenses.

The remaining proceeds of Lee National Denim Day will help fund the American Cancer Society's national research grants ongoing work to find a cure for breast cancer. As the largest non-governmental funder of cancer research, the Society has contributed to nearly every cancer breakthrough in recent history.
