MEET THE GUEST SPEKER – JOËL FERDINANDUS

Joël Ferdinandus, INretail
Job title: INcrowd connector

Where were you before this and how did you get here?
In 2008 I opened the all-inclusive men store LokalHeroz. Despite the positive reactions, I had to close the store in the Spring of 2013 due to economic circumstances. After having launched a marketing campaign for the clothing brand Van Gils and having developed a concept for the King Kong Hostel (Best Dutch Hostel 2014 & 2015 according to Hostelworld), I got the chance to start working at branch association INretail.

Q&A // MEET AFRA AMBA

Afra de boer (29) AFRA AMBA
Function: owner

What is it you do?
“I have a jewellery label for which I create everything by myself. My story started four years ago when I actually was looking for some jewellery for myself. However, I could not find anything that matched my personality; I love simplicity and powerful shapes. At that moment I started to create my own designs. At first, I gave my designs to my friends and they were really enthusiastic about them. Therefore, I decided to start my own label. With my jewellery I dare the wearer to cross a personal border by wearing a lot of jewellery at the same time. I am absolutely an advocate of the statement ‘more is more’.”
