Raised in a family business, Mdot (@boojilife) spent her younger years learning hands on how a business operates. These experiences were the root of her passion and drive to make things happen. Her motto is hard work always pays off. After studying I-D & furniture design, Mdot entered the footwear world with very little experience about creating footwear and the market. She spent 6 years co-directing JB Classics, an independent footwear brand. Involved in the day to day of building a brand was the experience that brought her to the next stage in her career. In 2008, she founded Booji, footwear & accessories brand. Keeping the momentum with creating and building a brand. Having a strong passion to make products lead Mdot to branch out, working with other brands in different industries. Relationships like these sparked her to curate an all female influencers project with Sebago for AW12. The project includes 5 females from around the globe brought together to bring their styles and taste to the market from a female prospective.

Mdot Booji, founder of footwear and accessories brand, Booji House since 2008, is one of the newest designers to collaborate with nautical brand Sebago® making it her largest collaboration to-date with Sebago® for their 2011 Artisan Collections. Through this collaboration, Mdot has been able to showcase her unique innovation and knack for creating classics with a twist. From this partnership with Sebago® emerged new relationships that ultimately led to Mdot’s desire to curate an all-female influencer’s project with Sebago® for their Autumn/Winter 2012 collection that would soon be known as: The Sixº Degrees.

Derived from the term ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ which is the idea that everyone is connected by six degrees, the Sixº Degrees collective includes one brand and five ladies from around the globe, bringing this wide range of identities together unveiled though far apart, and pinked by their passion, interests and drive.

The five bloggers of the new collection include Hana May of Hearty Magazine, Sandrinette of Color me Good and the Colette Team Tumblr, Mayra Fateh and Michal Tesler of Eve Without Adam. They also represent some of the world’s most vibrant cities like San Francisco, New York, Paris and Berlin.
