A Dream Just Came True - Think It Till You Make It!
Life will blow us to different opportunities, places and visions on the globe, but dreams, passions and relationships bring us together. Remember, you don't need to have it all figured out, you just need to have passion for whatever it is you do at every point in time, with a realisation that, "you are a child of the universe... and whether or not, it is clear to you, don't stop, cos the universe is unfolding as it should..." (Desiderata)
On the 5th of March 2011, at the Martin's Crosswinds, in the USA, a childhood relationship between two great men with a dream comes to reality. 4Jcouture is born out of pure love for fashion by Dr Fote Bertrand and out of business interest by Ernest Esunge a.k.a Dr J.
Thus: Dr Fote + Dr J = 4JCouture
Read what one of the partners had to say...
"I have liked fashion for a long time and have always been talking - albeit jokingly- of one day getting into the industry. My very good friend ( from high school back home in Cameroon - Sasse) called Lyonga a.k.a Dr J started selling shirts and suits in small scale back when he was in university back home in Cameroon. He always came to me first whenever he had new item to sell, because he understood my love for fashion.
As I finished residency and finally settled down financially and time-wise, I told Dr J he needed to get out of his basement and think big. I told him we could make our own designs and take advantage of the Internet etc and really grow big. He bought the idea and we started working towards creating a business venture. It was a perfect match - we both have the love and eye for fashion, I have a business background (MBA), he has over 15 years of experience in the industry, we have been friends since childhood.
Over the past 2 years, we have been working on building the business and trying to find ways to be unique and innovative. The website release is the first step in our marketing strategy. Our vision is to be the leading contemporary menswear company in the next 5 years. We have already been getting lots of requests from women to get into women's fashion - we just might do that in the near future."
What do you make of a business with such multiple skill? Dr Fote is says. he is a "Philosopher by birth, Psychologist by inclination, Sociologist by induction, Poet by inspiration, Engineer by instruction, Physician by training and passion" Dr J is a hard core business man with so many years of experience.Their bond is unbreakable and is now taken to another level, who can beat that?
