OUR STORY


Quinsera is an online sustainable fashion community information hub aiming to redefine the Ghanaian fashion industry through the female lens. Quinsera exists to drive sustainability at the core of Ghanaian fashion businesses through the provision of women-led novel sustainability information and education.


Quinsera's approach to fashion sustainability and climate change is hinged on the idea that women are a vital resource as carers for the environment, and this idea guides our mission.


At Quinsera, we believe that we can mitigate the issues of climate change and move towards a sustainable future through leadership, as well as through motivating community action to develop climate resilience and influence local and global policy. We aim to achieve this by educating women, giving them more leadership opportunities, and bringing their voices to the forefront.
