They will be able to get style and fashion advice as well as samples of beauty and hair care products at the event, which will be held between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. on July 24.

A mother of three, Neo Chatyoka, 36, of Walsall, is a social worker at Birmingham City Council but is also the founder of a skin and hair care brand called Uhuru Botanicals.

She makes the natural and organic products at home and sells them primarily online and through Amazon and will showcase them at the show, owned by Wolverhampton mother-of-three Mercy Gwamura at the Sip and Shop event.

Neo said: “We will be offering the women free champagne, wine, cocktails and juices during the event.

“We wanted to organize the event to help women and mothers to have more confidence in themselves when coming out of confinement.

“I also hope the event helps bring the community together again now that the lockdown restrictions have been lifted.

“People will be able to taste and buy my products and will also be able to see what Lorraine Gbadegesin, mother of two and founder of fashion brand Loz Boutique, has to offer.

Also in attendance will be Dr Pamela Sweeney, from the Khaya Foundation charity, which donates clothes to children in Africa.

“We all connected through business and decided to host the Sip and Shop event to allow women to have a drink while taking the time to see the brands.

“We hope people will buy our products and get free style and fashion advice.

“There will also be the offer of daytime foot scrubs and people will also be able to purchase wigs and hair accessories.

“We hope that many women will want to attend the event and find out about fashion and beauty tips.”
