Celebrating Black History Month

Coco de Mer & Janet's List collaborate for Black History Month

LONDON, October 2020 - Coco de Mer, luxury lingerie brand and home of female pleasure joins forces with Janet's List, a curated platform that helps consumers discover and buy from independent brands by black women and women of colour from the UK, in celebration of Black History Month. 

Popping up in Coco de Mer’s Covent Garden boutique, the curated edit will feature 12 brands from Janet’s List, championing independent businesses that have been founded by black women and women of colour, each with a purpose to make women look good, feel good and be empowered. Coco de Mer aims to give the brands a platform to raise awareness and sell their products with all proceeds going to Janet’s List and the associated brands.

Together, Janet’s List and Coco de Mer recognise that businesses owned by black women and women of colour face additional hurdles when it comes to accessing retail opportunities. Janet's List addresses this systemic issue through its curated platform of business owners, innovative concept stores and strategic retail partnerships. The collaboration with Coco de Mer is the first of its kind and will be an opportunity to discover and purchase a selection of brands from Janet's List in Coco de Mer’s beautiful and opulent boutique. Now more than ever, it is important for women to take time to nurture, excite and delight themselves.

Janet Oganah, CEO of Janet’s List commented: "Janet's List’s mission is to make it easier for everyone to discover and buy from amazing brands by black women and women of colour from the UK.
