Foren Concepts is a fashion and lifestyle brand based out of Toronto that draws inspiration from the poignant verses of a powerful poem written by Ijeoma Umebinyuo that encapsulates the essence of the brand’s ideology:

“So, here you are too foreign for home, too foreign for here. Never enough for both.”

This poetic ethos serves as the heartbeat of Foren Concepts, encapsulating the unique journey of 3rd culture kids—individuals born in one place but living in another, navigating the delicate balance of dual identities and embracing their status as diaspora kids. Foren Concepts aims to empower its wearers with a sense of belonging and pride in their global identity, encapsulating the spirit of the modern, interconnected world.
