The Women Behind who is elijah.
who is elijah prides itself on the fluidity of its nature and inclusivity. Here at HQ we have six beautiful women running the show. It has been important to us to maintain individual empowerment, as it helps us build who is elijah. As International Women’s Day reminds us, we need to commend, uplift and encourage the women around us for all they are and do.
Everyone meet our maker…Raquel
The founder and CEO of who is elijah. She is the passion, sweat and tears (mostly happy) that drives the company. What started as a side hustle on the garage floor has now employed five women who absolutely adore and are inspired by her. She has introduced thousands of people from all walks of life to the inclusive brand that is, who is elijah. Business aside, she is a mother of a wildly gorgeous and adventurous little boy, George. She is a wife of the crowd favourite, Adam and is an all-round great time. She is loved by many, a timelessly classy woman and we can’t get enough of her.
Sammy - Wholesale Manager
Sammy is our Wholesale Sales Queen, her knowledge (and contacts) comes from years of experience in the fashion industry. This is where she travelled abroad and lived in the US; selling, styling and conducting brand & product knowledge training for her global network of specialty and major retailers.
Kiki- The Warehouse Queen
If you’ve ever had the privilege of meeting our one and only Kik, she does not need an introduction. Kik commands the warehouse like it’s her kingdom, the thing is though, she does it with humour and the kindness that I swear the Dalai Lama must have had. But if you tape a box and it has bumps, off with your head! She’s just as passionate about the success of the business as a founder would be. Everything must be perfect, and for that we cherish her. She is loud and funky, has the best booty on the block and knows how to have a great time! This is where the saying “all good things come in small packages” really does apply, she’s mini but man, is she mighty!
Emma- Merchandise Planner
Our dearest Emma, we would be oh so screwed without her. She forecasts how much product we need to have for all our fabulous fans! During last year, when delivery times and product ordering hit the fan, Emma swooped on in to save the day. She’s the queen of spreadsheets, planning and organisation. I think she has personally counted every. single. product that we have in our warehouse, twice! Emma is the world’s kindest person, she would have your back to the day she dies and has the best smile in the world, Colgate hit her up!
Brea- Warehouse Assistant
Brea is our newest addition to the elijah family. She is Kiki’s right hand (wo)man. As who is elijah grows we needed more hands filling, packing and organising the warehouse. She studying to be a school-teacher, which is probably why she’s so wonderfully patient with Kiki’s perfectionism. She has the best taste in music, which is constantly cranked in the warehouse. She brings the groovy vibes and we are all the more productive because of it. She’s empathetic and hilarious, all the things we adore at who is elijah.
Josephine- Executive Assistant
Jo is our woman of a million hats. Officially titled as EA to our courageous leader, Jo also wears the Hat of Office Manager, warehouse warrior, PR agent, marketing manager, model and all-round who is elijah creative powerhouse. She is the wonder woman machine that keeps us all turning. Jo is the badass beauty who’s constantly going above and beyond, she can, and will do anything and everything that is (or isn’t) asked of her.
