How She Made It: Co-Founder of Magazine Targeting Brides of Color
Jacqueline Nwobu, along with her husband Chike Nwobu, did not have experience with magazine publishing prior to launching their swiftly successful magazine, but they did have a sense that the market needed their vision. While planning their own nuptials, they noticed the lack of resources for African-American brides and other women of color. In came the idea for Munaluchi Bridal magazine.
The bi-annual luxury magazine is carried in the United States, Nigeria and The United Kingdom and is sold in all Target stores – quite a feat for a publication that launched only a year and a half ago.
Here, Nwobu talks about building their brand, the challenges they’ve faced and how they made it all happen.
