PRECIOUS Nights with the March Muses

Thursday 15th September

An evening dedicated to connecting and hearing the stories of women of colour in business and the workplace

PRECIOUS Nights is a monthly event that gives you the opportunity to hear the stories of inspirational women of colour. Built firmly on the PRECIOUS ethos of sisterhood, it’s about connecting and community in a unique atmosphere of collaboration and sisterhood.

We are delighted to have Alison Burton and Natalie Duvall, the founders of March Muses, join us for the June edition of PRECIOUS Nights at the British Library.

“Christmas 2018 and my 7 year old daughter and I were decorating our tree when she asked me something that changed my world forever. “Mummy, can fairies be Black?”. I was caught off guard. What do you mean can fairies be Black, as I looked at my Christmas trees filled with white santa, white fairies and of course our white elf on the shelf. I felt ashamed. How could I have missed this? My daughters didn’t see themselves. They didn’t think angels or fairies could be Black. In their home, their safe place, they still were not represented. ” Natalie

After realising that their daughters couldn’t see themselves represented in their Christmas tree ornaments, Alison Burton and Natalie Duvall teamed up to do something about it.

Their product range featuring Black angels and Black Santa baubles, are individually handmade, with close attention to skin tone, hair design, body shape and size. These March born entrepreneurs are passionate about making these images normal and not novelty.

Both women are extremely busy juggling motherhood with full time jobs and running March Muses. Natalie is a mum of two girls who works full time in Marketing, and Alison is a mum of one daughter who works full time in pharmaceutical recruitment.

March Muses recently hit the headlines after their stand out appearance on BBC TV’s Dragon’s Den and receiving investment from Deborah Meaden and Peter Jones.
