Jennifer Nnamani is an enterprising entrepreneur in the world of fashion; in particular, Eco-Friendly Fashion. She is the CEO and Founder of Beau Monde Society (BMS). Her company is based in New York. I sat down with Ms. Nnamani over coffee one afternoon, and admired her distinctive style: “Blue nails, lime green heels, vintage wear with a touch of modern, classic flair.”
