Artist & designer Margaux Rusita is a true global citizen. Originally from Georgetown, capital of Guyana, she moved to London at 23 years old to split her time between courses at the London College of Fashion and her role as an assistant designer Catherine Walker, a favourite of Lady Diana Spencer. It was in London that she met her Burundian partner, whose country she now calls home after building a life& business there for the past 14 years. Her experiences, spanning 40 years and 3 continents, lend a rich and cultured point of view to Margaux Wong, an artisanal luxury jewellery and accessories brand where Amazonian low-waste values meet precious East African materials diverted from a waste-bound path to create treasurable, distinctive artwear. Founded in 2000, the brand has travelled the world with Margaux, and is now permanently based in Burundi together with her five awesome children and an all-Burundian team handling everything from sculpting to packaging.
