FATMATA FORSTER is a Barrister and Solicitor and also an entrepreneur, whose brand; Fatim’s African Shop strives to bring the best in African fashion and accessories to Sierra Leone. Fatmata loves all things African but is especially fascinated by the fashion and style of its different people and so her products are sourced from all corners of Africa; from Sierra Leone to Kenya, from South Africa to Gambia and from Ethiopia to Guinea. Her brand is meant for the modern African woman and so the pieces are chic and practical.
In addition to being a lawyer in full time private practice, Fatmata is also a member of LAWYERS, an organisation of female lawyers in Sierra Leone helping to combat domestic violence and to educate less privileged women on their rights.
Fatmata enjoys outdoor activities and the beach is one of her favourite places. She enjoys cooking and planning events and welcomes any reason to celebrate her family and friends. She is married and has a daughter.
