Fugee School Launched Its Brand FugeeLah

Celebrating diversity and inclusivity, FugeeLah introduced a collection of accessories featuring print motifs designed by children of Fugee School. 

Since 2008, Fugee School has provided an encouraging and safe space for brave children seeking refuge. At Fugee School, children of all ages and cultures can come together to learn, laugh and rebuild. Fast forward nine years later, Fugee School launched its very own accessories line; FugeeLah – a self-sustaining business kicking off with a range of accessories crafted by the brave children of Fugee School.

The launch was held at The Bowery Kitchen & Bar yesterday with the presence of former beauty queen and child’s right advocate, Deborah Henry who is also the co-founder of Fugee School. Also present, The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Malaysia representative, Richard Towle and a representative of The Rotary Club of Subang who have extended a helping hand in this initiative.

Homegrown brands and their founders, Frankitas Design led by Francisca Turner and The Batik Boutique led by Amy Blair have also played a vital role in assisting with the design and production process at no extra cost.

There is a large variation of jewellery already available as well as two scarves and one clutch while the collection is expected to grow organically. The price range for all items are between RM75 to RM180 and is now available online at instagram.com/fugee_lah and facebook.com/frankitasbagsandclutches.
