Love Happens: As our name, and the tagline of our publisher KOKET denotes, at ‘Love Happens’ we are firm believers that you cannot achieve any level of success without love. How does love play a role in the mission of Josefinas?

Josefinas: Josefinas’ mission is to empower and inspire women. We truly believe we can change the world through businesses, and we fight for gender equality through our collections and social initiatives. We are passionate about what we do, and we work to achieve something greater than us.

Lh: What empowers Josefinas?

Josefinas: The will to make the world a better place for children and women.

Lh: What does Josefinas consider its greatest achievement?

Josefinas: The number of people we have been supporting during these years. That is, really, what shows us that we’re on the right track.

Lh: Who is the Josefinas Woman?

Josefinas: The Josefinas’ woman is a demanding customer who cares about the (flawless) quality of the product she buys, who values sustainable, artisanal production and savoir-faire, who identifies herself with our feminist values and the causes we defend, and a woman who knows that a handmade product has a magic that no machine will ever be able to match.

She is an elegant, independent woman who believes that high-heels are not mandatory to feel confident and sophisticated. The Josefinas’ woman knows she can make the world a better place, one step at a time, while expressing herself through her style.

Lh: How does Josefinas empower other women?

Josefinas: We want to know that each woman feels special and capable of anything while wearing Josefinas, and everything we do has the goal to empower women all over the world. We do it through the social initiatives that help children and women, but also through our activism, creating collections with meaning, that highlight our values and show why is so important to fight for Human Rights.
