Teta & Maya Gorgoni
Cofounders, Royal Jelly Harlem
The mother/daughter duo behind Royal Jelly Harlem have turned their combined years of experience — in the fashion industry, business and world travel — into a clothing and home decor line rooted in traditional African prints and textiles, garnering attention and praise from The New York Times, GQ and People. But their impact reaches far beyond fashion. Royal Jelly Harlem holds a certificate from Made in NYC, a testament to the positive impact — supplying jobs and fostering artistic development — their business has on their local community.
