Catherine Djemba became an integral part of Vonhguard in its early days when the company began to earnestly invest in its ideas. Affectionately regarded as a friend by other members, Cath initially started as a model but quickly delved into understanding the intricacies of running a brand. With brilliance, she joined VONHGUARD at its inception as part of a collective of multidisciplinary talents united to bring a vision to life as a brand. Rooted in the Old French term “Vanguard” (noun), the team aimed to cultivate and pioneer fresh ideas. Both her passion and that of other team members resonated well. Cath, in particular, immersed herself in her passion for fashion to carve out her place within the company. By reinventing classics and working with shapes and sumptuous fabrics, Vonhguard has introduced over 40 distinct products in the few years since its establishment.

Which ‘hood are you in?
What do you do?
I operate in different aspects of the fashion industry. I am a Floor Manager at a women’s clothing store, I design clothes and manage the social media for Vonhguard and I also model.
What are you currently working on?
One of my main focuses currently is working on developing the brand’s presence on the Montreal fashion scene. Alongside that, increasing the brands social media presence by creating and constantly evolving our content. But, what I’m most excited about is getting back into the creative process and designing new pieces, creating a new wave for the brand and seeing where our creativity takes us.
