Background

Mall For Women is the brainchild of Mrs. Sanele Simmons II.  She is a qualified beauty expert from Camelot International with 18 years of experience in the beauty industry.

 She is also a Mrs. South Africa Semi-Finalist 2017, and former Jenna Clifford Brand Ambassador.  She enjoys helping women to look and feel beautiful. In 2018 she established the Sanele Simmons Shine Academy, a finishing school that specializes in etiquette, grooming, and the arts.  Later she founded a lifestyle movement called Beauty With Intention, which focuses on inner and outer beauty and engages women on issues that are more than skin deep.

Mrs Simmons is also a Director of Kenzo Project Management an entertainment company that specializes in TV Production, Music Production, Event Management, Marketing, and Sponsorship.

A member of the Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI), Mrs Simmons joined under the leadership of Former President Jacki Mpondo-Hendricks, the first black female president in its 130 years of existence.  In the second quarter of 2020, the JCCI Women's Desk organized an e-commerce training with Insaka eCommerce Academy that was conducted by its founder, Mr. Warrick Kernes.  Mrs. Simmons attended the course and it rekindled a 7-year dream of hers.  It was 2013 when she first had the vision for Mall For Women, but thought it could only be done as a brick and mortar business.  The capital required was huge and she thought the timing wasn't right.  Ironically, the COVID-19 pandemic presented an ideal time with shops closed due to lock-down, and the required capital was far less.  On the 9th of August 2020, National Women's Day in South Africa, Mall For Women was officially launched.
