LowCo. Wax & Gown was birthed during Dejon's role as an Alumni Atelier ambassador at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA. The initial product line included candles /wax recipes and handmade garments/gowns.
Focused on delivering hand-crafted products that would speak to the soul, inspire, and spark curiosity, Dejon formed the Lowcountry Wax & Gown experience. The brand products are informed by the Georgia Lowcountry, and designed through the lense and hands of Dejon's alter ego, Nadine. Nadin'e products take customers on an explorative journey rooted in southern folkways, magical realism, black excellence, and triumph. Shop visitors will find recurring themes such as nature as medicine, resilience, and self-care.
Dejon describes Lowcountry Wax & Gown as mindfully curious with a wild imagination. She is comitted to offering intentional products that are informed by the richness of her locale, that center the black diasporic experience in Georgia, and that strive to remix the past with the present.
