Our team

Maakola might be a small company, but we’re dedicated to connecting women around the world, from our tailors in Ghana and Italy to our international customers and ambassadors. We wanted to introduce you to another key part of our network: the team that makes it happen behind the scenes.

We’re always happy to hear from talented individuals. If you’d like to join us as we grow, please drop us a line here.

AURORA CHISTE

Creative Director and Founder
"I believe in creating clothes that reveal who we are — not only in terms of personal style, but by shining a light on our values and making them visible."

IVY SENYO

Quality Assurance Manager
Ne lo lolo ʋuu hã la, azimevi ko wonye. (No matter how fat a crocodile is, it is still hatched from an egg).

ALEKSANDRA ILIC

Illustrator
“For me fashion and drawing is the way I express myself, an extension of my personality. Through my art, I show my creativity, my uniqueness and the way I see the world. It gives me freedom to be who I want to be.”

JULIA GOLOSIY

Photo Editor
“The world around us is beautiful, but we stopped noticing this beauty, because we are so busy with our everyday routines. I believe that my work as a photographer and as a photo editor can help people to see this beauty again, even in very familiar things.”

SUSANNAH COHEN

Copy Editor
“Everything we wear tells a story. I have always been fascinated by the messages we send through our clothes.”

CECILY COHEN

Social Media and Press Intern
“Fashion has always been a big part of my life and how I express myself, and I love how it allows me to explore who I am in an exciting way.”

BERNARD SAM

Accountant
"Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning." - Dennis Waitley

PROSPER TORNYI, M.GHIE

Product Traceability Lead
"Build a sustainable product that goes through a systemic approach and model that reflects the authencity of the supply chain."
And a big thank you to Cindy Kofie and Priscilla Adjubel, who joined us as cofounders from 2018 to 2019. Maakola would not be where it is today without them.
