PRECIOUS Nights with the March Muses

We are delighted to have Alison Burton and Natalie Duvall, the founders of March Muses, join us for the September 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 Duvall

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.

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

Join us on September 15th to hear more of their story, their plans for expansion, building a business with one of your best friends and more.
