It’s the penultimate day of Global Entrepreneur Week 2016! We continue to showcase our Westminster Entrepreneurs, and today we hear how one student combined law and fashion together to create something new!
Bunmi (full name Bunmi Jenfa) is an undergraduate Law student at Westminster, she is also the Founder of The Fashion Law Chronicles (TFLC)! Her project, the Fashion Law Chronicles is an online platform dedicated to exploring the legal and business side of fashion. It seeks to educate and advise fashion designers, industry insiders, students, lawyers, those working in the business of fashion and those with a general interest, on the commercial and legal issues that affect the running of a fashion business. Thus, bridging the gap between fashion, the law and business.

Earlier this year, Bunmi entered the NACUE and Westminster Big Ideas Competition and won £500 for her project. The money would go towards promotional ventures and organising the first TFLC event.
Bunmi reflected on her experience of taking part in the Big Ideas Competition, and said the benefits included making new connections to grow her network, and learning to ‘pitch’ her ideas to potential investors and business partners. She also shares her highlight with us ‘The skills swap session was particularly valuable to me as I was able to actually take time out for a few minutes and ask myself ‘What skills do I have and how can those skills be of use to others?’. I’m so used to assuming I have ALL the skills known to man, but this session allowed me to discover new things about myself and want to develop my skills further.’
Bunmi, what are the next steps for you?
‘Recently, TFLC was nominated to enter the UK Blog Awards 2017 in the Lifestyle and Education category so that’s been a great achievement so far (more information on public voting will be released on the site and social media platforms soon). Also, both myself and my team will continue to work on content for the site which includes interviews from those in the legal profession and fashion industry, articles/blog posts etc. I am currently looking for any contributors who would like to get involved and be part of TFLC team!’
