Inspiration Dating Back to 1916
The inspiration for LINĒIJTM traces back to 1916, when Lillian Delancy left Blue Hills, Turks and Caicos in search of a new start in America. Lillian, an educator of many years, was finally able to fulfill her longtime dream of opening a boutique featuring her custom designs for men, women and children. Her creativity and entrepreneurial spirit were a huge influence and inspiration for her great granddaughter, Kipenzi.
About the Founder, Kipenzi Chidinma
Los Angeles native, Kipenzi Chidinma, earned her M.B.A in International and Fashion Marketing and has worked with companies such as Walt Disney, Just Fab, Yahoo, Yamaha, Nordstrom, and Melissa Masse. Discovering her great grandmother’s collection of rare accessories and hand drawn patterns motivated Kipenzi to embrace her innate talents and launch her own accessories company. This allowed her the opportunity to work from home while simultaneously caring for her mother, who has been diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease (HD). LINĒIJTM has partnered with Huntington’s Disease Society of America, where one hundred percent of the net profits from the sale of selected items from the recently launched line will help raise awareness about Huntington’s Disease, increase education, care and support resources.
