As part of Nolcha Fashion Week, held a couple of weeks ago, I attended the event’s annual brunch at Yotel in midtown Manhattan. At the brunch many different vendors were on hand including Msglocal by Glocal Connection, a company started by two friends to provide an e-commerce platform for global artisans and micro-producers, allowing them to make an income. The company curates beautiful handcrafted accessories by locals in communities across the country, and gives them the opportunity to sell their creations to a global audience. Additionally, Msglocal provides them with business coaching. The goal of the company is to achieve positive social impact via economic development: Impact GLObal Shop loCAL!
