Nneka & Justine's Stories

Nneka Ibeabuchi & Justine Paradis

Nneka Ibeabuchi & Justine Paradis take their statement-making style to new levels with Mondetta Originals. Now living in America, Nneka wears the country where she was born and raised on her sleeve. “The green and white green Nigerian flag on my sweater means peace and unity in my county and I stand for that anywhere I go.” With her sweater, Justine pays tribute to her homeland, Great Britain, as well as her new home in America. “The flags on my sweater represent where my family heritage is from and where we are now. The sweater reminds me that it’s always a part of who I am and that I should embrace it.”
